Registered Charity No 1155298

Pendle Dogs in Need was set up to help dogs in the Pendle area (and surrounding areas) secure loving homes for life. We help the dogs in this area and are committed to keeping the dogs in this area. Our dogs are only rehomed within the Burnley and Pendle area, (includes Blackburn, Clitheroe and Skipton.)

We only use foster homes for our dogs so that they can be assessed in a home environment by our experienced team of foster carers. All foster homes and adoptive homes will be carefully home checked and dogs will be matched to the foster carers based on suitability.  We don't have a kennels where you can meet lots of dogs and we usually home check for suitability before a meeting with a dog takes place. We don't have set criteria, every home and every dog have different needs and we try to match them up.

We offer full lifetime support to any dogs that come into our rescue and are always here to help and advise even after adoption has taken place.

Pendle Dogs in need relies totally on donations and fundraising to help these poor dogs. If you think you could help in any way please click here.

We could not do this valuable work with out the help of our Foster homes and Volunteers, could you become part of Team PDiN? get in touch at [email protected] 


We urgently need dog/cat/child free short term foster homes.

We desperately need dog and child free foster homes, so we can assess and treat these dogs and move them into forever homes. We have some fantastic homes waiting for dogs but, unless we have the foster homes to assess these dogs, we can't get them out and they are at real risk of being put to sleep in the pound. 

PDiN cover all costs for short term assessment homes. All these poor dogs need is a safe space for a couple of weeks while they find their feet and get veterinary care.

Please think about helping a Poundie. They need you!

All the above dogs have been saved from the local pounds and are now much loved family pets. When a dog gets taken to a dog pound, it has 7 days to be reclaimed or rehomed. If the pound doesn't manage to secure a home or a rescue doesn't step in to help, that dog is living on borrowed time.

Please make space in your home for a poundie. They don't deserve to die due to lack of space but thousands of beautiful dogs do every year in this country!

Due to changes in the law we are now unable to microchip puppies. The law states all puppies must be microchipped and registered on the database by the time they are 8 weeks old. It will be illegal for breeders to sell a puppy that is not microchipped and registered on an authorised database that meets the legal requirements.The breeder must always be the first 
recorded keeper of the puppy on the microchip database and must provide transfer of keepership documents to the puppy buyer to ensure the new owner can update their details in order to comply wth the law.
