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: 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: Cross Breed
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.

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, walks better on a harness.  He ignored our cats when introduced, can brush him all over (when he stays still long enough) can inspect mouth, eyes, paws etc. and can touch all over.  Takes food gently with no sign of food aggression.  He loves toys and to play.  He was introduced to our Blue (another male)  and he just wanted him to play, no sign of aggression.  He was introduced to Kodak (one of our females)  he was very friendly but she told him off and he didn’t re-act, would say he will be ok with other dogs.

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.

Breed: Shih Tzu

Age:  5 Years
Sex: Female

Arrived 18th September 2014

Amber is looking for a new home because her owner is elderly and cannot manage to care for her any more. She is a sweet little girl who would prefer a home without children. She likes to sit on your lap and walks really well on a lead.


Name: Missy Reserved

Age:  1 Year
Sex: Female

Arrived 15th September 2014

Missy is such a sweet little girl and is looking for a new home because her owner couldn’t manage her.  She has lived with children from the age of 9 months upwards.  She has also lived with a male dog and a cat.  She is loveable and bouncy, she has the typical staffie chatter and likes to sing to you.

Name: Lucy Reserved
Breed: Lurchers
Age: 10 Years
Sex: Female 

Arrived 14th September 2014                                                                                    

Lucy has come back to us because her owner no longer wanted to keep her now she has small children. She is a lovely girl who walks well on a lead and enjoys her home comforts. Its very sad to see a girl of  her age back with us but hopefully she will not be here long. Lucy cannot be rehomed where there are small animals but she is good with other dogs and would prefer to live with older children. Please do not let her age put you off, she is very easy going and will make someone a wonderful companion.

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
Sex: Male

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.

Arrived 22nd September 2014

This is Nala - she's looking for a permanent loving home

September 2014

Nala is a 15 month old Akita cross. She was born into the Akita Rescue Trust when her mum was saved from being PTS in the stray pound. Due to a change in Nala’s owners circumstances, she finds herself in need of a new home. She is a friendly, bouncy dog with a nice nature. She would like for her new family to be with her most of the time so she cannot live with all day workers. Nala is nervous of strange men but this can easily be worked on.

She is good with other dogs so could live with a male after introductions. She currently lives with cats, and could live with cats pending successful introduction.

Nala is not at our centre in South Cave but futher information can obtained by email  to or you could ring 0845 2 602 206 and leave a message.

Their owner says this about them:

They love attention and cuddles and like to be where you are.  They are good on a lead and enjoy their walks and are good around other dogs.  They do everything together including sleeping on the same blanket.  The most important thing is that they are kept together as they become distressed if separated
