Somerset & Dorset Animal RescueTheir story started back in 1980 when, calling themselves the Dorset Animal Rescue, they would be sent photos of dogs in Liverpool that were due to be euthanized. They then pleaded with friends and contacts to offer these dogs a home and the long weekly trip was undertaken to collect them. Over 5,000 dogs were homed. News travelled, and before too long they were also doing weekly drives, with teams of volunteers, to Wales to rescue the ever increasing numbers of animals which, after only a week in the dog pound, would be euthanized. Each week they travelled all over Wales collecting the dogs and, with the numbers increasing, they invested in a transit van and up to 45 dogs a week would be brought back to Dorset for re-homing.
