  • Bridledown rescue: I am responsible for the rehoming of the stray and unwanted dogs that come to our kennels, and for what ever reason are left unclaimed for 8 days. We take in all these dogs in the East Kent area of the UK. Thankfully most are reclaimed by their owners, however, those left unclaimed are put up for rehoming, we have a non-destruct policy here at Bridledown so dogs stay here until a suitable home is found for them. We do not have charity status, and I was enquiring as to whether you would be willing to put a link to our site from yours? The site address is: The ‘rescue’ kennels name is Bridledown.

We get in pet skunks that people buy do not want any more, we do adoptions and find nice homes for them. (These are all captive bred skunks not wild skunks) I do educational programs on skunks both wild and domestic and trying to change the public’s eye on wild skunks. My VP and I also are on 24/hr 7/days week on call for skunk help. We also pay a vet to do medical research on skunks. Please look over our web site on skunk care. The vet page and bone page will show some of our research we do.

  • Free At Last rescue: this is mainly a ex-battery hen rescue that set up in Summer 2004 – there are just 2 of us that run it – but we have already re-homed 1649 hens. We also take in other small pets including ferrets, rabbits, g.pigs, rodents & of course other poultry, ducks, quail etc. I wondered being as many of the battery hens have permanaent injuries & sometimes disabilities from their traumatic start to life please could you add our details to your directory of animal rescues. We are based in Bedfordshire, UK.
