Lost and Found

If you have a missing pet and you would like to put him/her on our website please send:

  • full description including age sex or any distinguishing marks
  • if neutered or micro-chipped
  • area and date where lost
  • contact number and a photo if possible

This will, I think, apply mainly to cats but can be any type of animal.

If only a couple of animals are re united with their owner it will be worthwhile

Name: Kodak
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  18 Months
Sex: Female

Arrived 21st June 2014

Originally an unclaimed stray from the Goole area, re-homed from here but has been returned for being protective of owner whilst on lead.  She is a really nice girl who is full of fun, loves toys, walks well on a lead but a little extra training would be beneficial. She loves to be groomed and can be touched all over.  No food aggression and takes teats gently.  We have walked her with a female staffie and a male lurcher and she seemed quite happy, perhaps happier with the male lurcher as he is a calm dog.  She knows basic commands and was good at the vets.  Can be nervous in new surroundings especially with other dogs, would probably benefit from some socialisation classes.

Name: Roly
Breed: Border Terrier Cross
Age: 7 Years

Arrived 10th May 2014

Roly does not show himself well in his kennel, he constantly barks and jumps up for attention but this is not what he’s really like, once out of the kennel he walks calmly and quietly  on a lead, no pulling, just minds his own business.  He is good with other dogs but does not like cats and Roly would be better suited to older children. He is a really nice boy and with the right environment he will make a wonderful companion.

Name: Comet
Breed: Lurcher
Age: 4 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 21st November 2012

Our longest staying dog by many months is Comet and he requires an experienced owner

Comet was dumped at the vets, not this area, in Lancashire, he had severe facial injuries and part of his jaw had been ripped away.  Someone had tried to staple his face together using domestic staples.  We believe all this came from using Comet for badger baiting.  Despite the many injuries he suffered (we have a lot of sympathy for the badgers as well) and extensive surgery at our vets he was patient towards the veterinary staff but no small animals for Comet though.  He will need a strong, experienced owner.  He walks well on a harness, rarely pulls but can be very strong if he sees or smells something.  Good with  dogs of same breed.

Name: Rio
Breed: Husky Cross
Age:  2 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 21st June 2014

Rio was with us early this year and was re-homed but this dog is an escape artist and has been returned for that reason.

He walk well on a lead but this large dog can be strong if he sees or smells something of interest to him.  Seemed good with cats and rabbits, can be touched all over, look in ears and touch paws.  Takes food gently, likes fetch and toys.  He is a gentle intelligent dog, clean in his kennel but be warned he can open doors.

This is what his last owner had to say about him:

he is a real family dog – very friendly around people – brilliant with children – loving and playful – loves walks and toys – loves swimming – very house trained – good at basic commands – gentle with food and treats

On the minus side

he can escape if allowed to do so, doesn’t like cats, cannot go off-lead, picks and chooses his dog friends

Rio will make a family a wonderful companion given the correct environment.


Name: Blue
Breed: Staffie
Age: 2 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 4th July 2014

An unclaimed stray picked up by the Animal Warden in Withernsea, chipped to Bridlington but doesn’t want him back. Pulls on lead, could do with training, loves to be groomed all over.  Playful, likes toys, friendly, loves cuddles

Name: Pinkey
Breed: Staffie
Age:  2 Years
Sex: Female

Arrived 4th July 2014

A stray from the Everthorpe area, she walks quite well on a lead and loves fusses and attention.  Pinky likes to be groomed but a bit unsure and nervous of it, to be taken slowly.  Loves toys and playing. We would not home Pinky with small children.

Name: Lenny
Breed: Staffie Cross
Age:  11 Months  DoB 14th September 2013
Sex: Male

Arrived 26th July 2013

Elderly owner unable to cope with a young dog, pulls a bit on the lead but is manageable, Lenny is a really nice fussy boy who is quite excitable, we would not home him with young children. Lenny would benefit from an experienced owner and he will make someone a wonderful companion.

Name: Alfie
Breed: Lurcher
Age: 4 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 17th July 2014

Our returned.  He came to us originally as his owner just didn’t want him, he was re-homed from here just a year ago but has been returned for attacking the other dog in the house.  No small animals for Alfie and to be an only dog

Name: Millie   Reserved
Breed: Jack Russell
Age:  1 Year
Sex: Female

Arrived 9th August 2014

Millie is a lovely girl and although you wouldn’t know it now, she was the runt of the litter and was bullied by her siblings.  She was rescued by a kind person who already had dogs of her own but realised Millie must have a better life.  She took Millie and kept her until we had a kennel space for her.   Millie has not lived with children and so would be best homed with older rather than younger children. Because she has been bullied in the past we would like her to be in a home where she is the only dog.  She walks really well on a lead and loves her kisses.

Name: Eppie
Breed: Greyhound
Age:  4 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 18th August 2014

Photos taken on day of arrival.  Brought to us by the Animal Warden as an unclaimed stray from the Bridlington area.  He has a micro chip but the owners are have moved and are untraceable.  From the chip we know Eppie’s date of birth is 28th May 2010.  He is is poor bodily condition, skin problems and sores, perhaps pressure sores.  Will be seeing vet, good food and skin medication, he will improve now he is with us. Eppie is gentle on the lead but can not be homed with small animals or cats. Because Eppie was a stray we do not know what he is like with children.

Name: Alfie
Breed: Border Collie
Age:  3 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 14th August 2014

A stray collected by the Animal Warden, owner was traced but had previously sold him on and didn’t want him back.  Very strong on a lead, good to groom and touch all over, takes treats ok but a bit on the eager side, Alfie would benefit from an experienced owner and because he has come through our stray system we do not know what he is like with children.

Name: Lexi
Breed: Staffie
Age:  4 Years
Sex: Female

August 2014

This is Lexi the staffie, she was 4 years old in July 2014. She has a really good temperament just fussy with strangers. She is often around children of all ages and other dogs and is really good with them i.e knows when to be gentle! Can be let off her lead on walks with other dogs around. Never really around cats but when she is shes wary of them more than anything.  Owner’s work commitments means Lexi is missing out on attention and her walks, so want her re-homed to someone with more time for her.

Lexi is not at our centre, she is in a private home, anyone interested, in the  first instance, please ring 01482 842603, it will be an answer machine but please leave your details and we will get back to you.

Age:  18 Months
Sex: Bitch

Skyler has come into us through the stray system so we do not know much about her past.  She is a very bouncy lively girl who walks reasonably well on the lead. We do not know what Skyler is like with children but I am sure she will make someone a wonderful companion.

Name: Daisy Reserved
Breed: Bassett
Age:  11 Years
Sex: Female

September 2014

Daisy is 11 years old, however, she is a very fit and active old lady and deserves a home for her twilight years instead of spending them in a kennel.  If anyone is willing to offer her a fireside, I am sure she would be extremely grateful!

Daisy is not at our centre she is with Lesley in a foster home in Holme on Spalding Moor, if interested and want more info contact Lesley on 01430 860472
