Just for Dogs was founded in August 1997 by a handful of like-minded people who simply wanted to rescue and re-home abandoned dogs. Founder members agreed that they would not get into any politics, rules or regulations and therefore it was decided there would be no long list of committee members drawing up endless policies.
Our objectives are:
To rescue dogs who through no fault of their own had found themselves lost and alone
To take in dogs whose owners can no longer keep them due to marriage breakdown, unemployment, eviction, illness or death
To worm, fully vaccinate, microchip, spay/neuter and get veterinary attention when needed for all dogs coming into Just For Dogs
Re-home in a responsible manner and without long lists of restricting guidelines. We insist on our dogs being offered a kind, loving and responsible home. We are quite prepared to re-home dogs to families with young children, senior citizens, and people in full time employment as long as these people understand that it has to be the right dog to fit in with the right environment.
To operate a very strict non-destruct policy where only terminally ill dogs that are suffering are put to sleep or dogs that, in our opinion, are exceptionally aggressive and so would pose a great risk to the public and other dogs alike.
To offer help and advice to anyone in need, with regards to behavioural issues or any dog related problem
To promote responsible dog ownership with regard to the importance of vaccinating, neutering, worming micro-chipping and advise on the legal requirement of all dogs to wear collar identification discs, bearing owners name, address and telephone number.
