Dog Rescue Newcastle is a group of volunteers dedicated to the rescue of abandoned, neglected or abused companion animals. We rescue dogs and cats from death row at local pounds and put them into loving foster homes until we can find permanent homes for them.

We are self-funded and rely solely upon animal loving people like you to help where they can.
Please learn how you can donate, volunteer, become a foster carer or help in many other ways.

We're All Waiting for You
