Binfield Dog Rescue has been finding homes for unwanted, abandoned and stray dogs since 1966. We take in dogs from people that can no longer look after them, and unclaimed dogs from council pounds located anywhere in the UK. Many of these are Staffordshire Bull Terrier type dogs and Rottweilers because the rescues local to the pounds will not find homes for this breed of dog. The dogs are kept in our kennels in Billingbear, just outside Binfield village. The dog on the right is looking for a new home. You can see more information about this dog by clicking on its photo. To see our current list of dogs needing homes click on DOGS at the top of the page. We do not import dogs from Ireland or other countries outside the UK.

WE DO NOT COLLECT MONEY on the street. It has come to our attention that someone is collecting money 'on behalf of Binfield Dog Rescue'. This is not true. It is also fraud and theft. We are not the only dog rescue that these scammers target. If you encounter someone collecting for an animal rescue, find out which rescue they are 'collecting' for. If it is not local to you then it is probably a scam i.e fraud, because the money is income for the person collecting it. If they are on the premises of a supermarket then contact their head office. The chances are they are not permitted to be there. Also contact the local council because they will need a permit to collect money from the public.

YOU DID IT! You raised £1200 so that Miss Piggy can lead a normal dogs life!

UPDATE 16th January: Miss Piggy was adopted today.

UPDATE 22nd December: Miss Piggy has been neutered and you can now see her eyes.

UPDATE 20th October: Thank you everyone that has donated to help Miss Piggy especially Nick Yates whose magnificent fundraising has enabled us to go ahead with Miss Piggy's surgery. Her eyelids have been corrected and we can now see her eyes. In time we hope that she will be able to see us better. I expect to post a photo of Miss Piggy's new look soon.

Miss Piggy was abandoned at Binfield Dog Rescue and needs some help - click on her picture to see a larger photo. She is five years old and looks like she may have been used for breeding. Like a lot of Shar Pei's, she has entropion (interned eyelids) that she was born with, and requires surgery, so that she can see and lead a normal life. She gets scared when out walking because of her limited eyesight so will not walk very far. Her eyesight and daily life would improve if she has the surgery to correct this deformity. The rescue has a limited income and cannot afford this type of surgery - we have therefore set up this fundraising page in the hope that we can improve the life of this friendly dog and then find her the home she so deserves.

Donations Needed

Binfield Dog Rescue survives on donations of food for the dogs and money to pay vet fees. If you would like to help a dog during it's stay with us please send a cheque or postal order for any amount or bring your food/money donation to the above address.

No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.

Kim Potter Dog Training

Ever had the feeling that your precious dog is doing just as
it wants rather than what you want it to do?

Let me show you how to be the pack leader so that you will be
confident with the knowledge that you can both control and
protect your dog.

Your dog needs to fit in with your lifestyle. This starts with his
good behaviour in your home, in preparation for good behaviour
outside. The first introduction to young children and household cats
requires advance planning and patience!

I can guarantee that you and your dog will both become
more relaxed and gain more enjoyment from your time together.

Please just phone me to discuss your concerns. If I can help you
over the phone, I will.

Happy dog owner Marcia says: "Kim came to our home after we had rescued an American Bulldog. From the start we gained instant results. She is not only gifted in her understanding of dogs but of people too! We now have a very happy boy who has settled into our family life. Kim is always on hand for any follow up questions or concerns that we have and I have no hesitation in recommending her as a dog trainer."
