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, (including Rossendale 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 also offer a temporary foster service for elderly or ill persons, ( if we have space available.)
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 urgently need dog/cat/child free short term foster homes.
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!

Did you know that over 126,000 dogs are picked up by Local Authorities across the UK each year?
Over 30,000 homeless dogs are sent to 'rescue' every year to be rehomed and over 7,000 of them are euthanised by Local Authorities for want of a home.
These results indicate that 20 dogs are put to sleep somewhere in the UK each day, nearly one dog an hour!
The 15th annual Stray Dog Survey, conducted by GfK NOP on behalf of Dogs Trust, also revealed a large number of dogs were rejected by their owners who refused to claim them once found and identified by local dog wardens. This new trend is worrying as it appears some dog owners no longer view their pet as a valued family member or have not considered the true cost and responsibility involved with owning a dog.
Despite this year’s shocking Stray Dog Survey results, the general public seem unaware of the real state of the nation’s dogs with a recent survey* revealing that nearly all - over 94% - of the public either underestimated or had no idea how many stray dogs there are in the UK. Over 56% of those questioned also did not know how many dogs are put to sleep each year because they cannot be rehomed.
Please help us spread the word about the plight of these beautiful dogs.
Don't let them die for want of being loved.
They deserve so much more!
Foster! Adopt! Volunteer!
Together we can make a difference!!!
