Lassie - Almost Home Dog Rescue - North Wales

The Home At Last Dog Rescue of North Wales has made it their mission to save the lives of homeless/helpless dogs by pulling them from shelters and offering them foster families until they find their much deserved, “forever home”. They provide a necessary alternative to the purchase of puppy mill and pet store dogs, thereby reducing the demand for, and ultimately, the supply of such dogs. The group of caring volunteers at Home At Last Dog Rescue are dedicated to matching each pup with the right family after the dog has been observed in a foster home. They are a group of volunteers whose goal is to save the lives of homeless dogs suffering in high-kill shelters, as well as owner-surrender dogs who need to be re-homed due to unfortunate circumstances. This not a shelter, and that’s exactly why we support them! In fact, they pull dogs from other various shelters and provide foster homes until they are adopted.

My wife and I lost our 15 year old dog in July '15. We knew we were going to adopt again but we were not finding the right organization. We eventually found Home at Last in November.
We of course wanted to adopt all of the dogs, as most dog lovers would. We saw a few pictures and requested that they be available at the next meet and greet. We drove to North Wales from Delaware County. One of the dogs we were interested in was there. Her name at that time was Marlee. We instantly knew that she was the one. The foster mom ( Laura ) explained that she had been on the streets for a long time and would do better having another dog as company, to show her how to be a dog. Penny found us.......and we started the application process. The rescue and Laura, were extremely responsive. They asked questions, we asked questions. We got answers, they got answers. They did a very through review of our application, and contacted both our Vet and the references. All this was done in a little over a week. Friday November 13th was the home visit. Both dogs were welcomed with open arms. Marlee was timid and scared , but they had prepared us for that. In time she responded to the love and began to trust, possibly for the first time in her life. I cannot say enough good things about this organization. I only hope that they are around when the time comes to adopt again.

Misty - Almost Home Dog Rescue - North Wales There are also regional organisations dedicated to the training of search dogs and their handlers. England has two associations, The Search and Rescue Dog Association England SARDA(E) and The Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dog Association (LDMRSD). Wales also has two associations The Search and Rescue Dog Association Wales (SARDA Wales)responding to incidents in North Wales and The Search and Rescue Dog Association South Wales (SARDA South Wales). Handlers must be full team members of a mountain rescue team and, once graded, will operate alongside that team, but can also be deployed in support of other teams.

I established North Wales Dog Photography to combine two great pleasures in my life: dogs and photography.

As a dog owner, I understand the value in photographs of my best friends, and to have a record of their lives just as you would keep images of your child's journey through life. This is why I started out in dog photography, and my aim with any client is simple: to capture the spirit of their dog at work, or at play.

My style is relaxed and I make sure that sessions are fun so that we can get the best from our time together, and the best from your dog. No time pressures or studio time, just an informal shoot where you, and more importantly your dog, feel relaxed and at peace. This results in natural and expressive photographs that you can always treasure.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and please contact me if you would like any more information.
