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

Comet lovs to run free in our exercise area, when he's puffed out he comes for a cuddle

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.


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

Blue can play for hours with a ball

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

Here's Pinky retrieving a tennis ball

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 as she is very boisterous.  Throw a ball for her, she loves it! and brings it straight back to your feet for a repeat performance

Name: Lenny
Breed: Staffie Cross
Age:  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: 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 although when we introduced him to cats and rabbits there wasn’t much of a re-action.  Best as only dog.  We walks really well on a lead, loves to be groomed and thrives on human interaction.  Likes playing chase rather than toys.  Can re-act to other passing dogs and this needs to be addressed by new owner.  Alfie is a very affectionate dog.

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.

22nd September – Eppie has been with us some weeks now and as you can see below his bodily condition is much improved, no more sores no more skin problems

Eppie walks very well on a lead, nice and gentle but no cats or small animals for this dog.  You can examine mouth ears and paws, he likes being handled, takes food gently, no food aggression, will play fetch.  Walked him with Arnie, a male Lurcher, with no sign of aggression.  Think he will be fine with other dogs, he was well-behaved at the vets, a nice playful boy.

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.

Name: Arnie
Breed: Lurcher
Age:  8 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 15th August 2014

Arnie is a large dog, a stray from the Beverley area.  He was completely relaxed and happy being groomed and handled.  Can touch all over, takes food gently, loves toys and playing but no small animals for Arnie

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

where did I leave that ball??


Roly loves a play in our exercise area

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: Hank
Breed: Cross Breed
Age:  2 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 22nd September 2014

A stray from the Woodmansey area.  Collected by the Animal Warden and has been in council care for the statutory amount of time before coming to us for re-homing.  He was found with an injured ear, this has had veterinary treatment and is well on the way to being completely healed  Can pull slightly on a lead but manageable.  Wouldn’t home him with small animals, we think he would chase, he’s gentle with treats and very playful..  Hank is a loveable medium to small cross-breed, very friendly, likes his kisses and cuddles

Name: Nala
Breed: Akita Cross
Age: 15 Months
Sex: Female

These are the puppies (including Nala) that Millie had after being rescued (all have new homes except Nala)


This is Millie - Nala's mum (already in a home)


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.

Viewing can be arranged to suit any potential adoptee.  The usual checks will also be carried out

Age:  3 Years born 27th May 2011
Sex: Male

Arrived 23rd September 2014

Buster is looking for a new home because his owners have separated. He has come into our kennels with another Boxer but we are not necessarily looking to rehome them together. Buster has lived with children from 5 years upwards but he is very bouncy. We would not rehome buster with cats but he is good with other dogs as he has obviously lived with Maya. It would be really nice if Buster found a home where there is another bitch to keep him company.

Name: Maya Rehomed
Breed: Boxer
Age:  2 Years born 17th December 2012
Sex: FemaleArrived 23rd September 2014

A marriage split and two Boxers loose their home, Buster is the other one, we are not looking to home them together.  They are nice friendly dogs that have lived with children from 5 years. Maya is a little shy when she firsts meets you but once she gets to know you she is very affectionate. We have introduced her to cats and she is quite timid with them which would hopefully mean she would be ok in a home with them.

Name: Kirsty
Breed: Greyhound
Age:  6 Years
Sex: Female

Arrived 29th September 2014

Kirsty is no longer wanted by her previous owner even though she is an adorable girl. She walks well on her lead and is very bouncy. Kirsty has been a working greyhound and cannot be rehomed with any small animals or other dogs. She is quite active for a greyhound of her age and is full of fun. Give her a duvet or a big comfy bed and she will love you for ever.

Name: Phoebe Rehomed
Breed: Staffie
Age:   18 Months
Sex: Female

Arrived 29th September 2014

Another unclaimed stray picked up in the Bridlington area.  Phoebe seems a quiet friendly girl.  She doesn’t seem to have been cared for very well, she isn’t in good condition, a skin complaint, probably a flea allergy which we can soon put right.  Her general condition will improve over the next couple of weeks.  Hope to get Phoebe a nice responsible home that will look after her well

Name: Chad
Breed: Weimaraner
Age:  3 Years
Sex: Male

Arrived 27th September 2014

Chad continues to improve, photo taken 18th October

27th September 22 kilos.   2nd October 26.2 kilos   14th Otober 28.9 kilos

Chad a very under-weight dog collected as a stray from the Orchard Park area.  His condition will be fully investigated by the vet before he goes anywhere.  Vet believes it’s down to lack of food so the plan at the moment is to gradually feed him, he has 3 meals a day and is gaining weight.

Now he’s feeling better he’s very strong on a lead, pulls a lot, not suited to cats and rabbits, on meeting a cat he was frightened and very defensive of himself.  Would not home him with small animals. Can look/handle ears and body, was nervous when trying to touch eyes, mouth and feet, not aggressive just very unsure of himself.  Cannot judge what he is like with food as understandably he is ravenous.  Enjoys playing in particular with ball, he fetches and drops it at your feet, knows sit, down and paw.

Name: Benji and Sally Rehomed
Breed: Yorkie and Cross Breed
Sex: Male and Female

Arrived 4th October 2014

An odd couple brought here for re-homing as their owner has died.  Benji is a Yorkshire Terrier aged 4 years, male.  Sally is a lovely steady tan cross-breed aged 10 years, female.  Benji can be a bit ‘mouthy’ when passing other dogs on the lane and this needs to be checked.  Sally is a lovely girl, walks steady but with a bit of a pull on the lead, a very nice girlThese two must stay together
