Pendle Dogs in Need

Click here to edit subtitle

When looking at our dogs can people please be aware of our rehoming area which is Burnley and Pendle. We go as far as Barnoldswick in one direction and Parts of Blackburn in the other but do not go out of these areas. This is rescue policy and is not open to negotiation. We require a home check before you can meet any of  our dogs who are all in foster homes in the area, we do not operate from a kennel base. All dogs have an adoption fee of £150 payable after a trial period 
(PLEASE NOTE this will be increasing to £175 from the 1st of January 2018).
To express an interest in any of our dogs please complete the enquiry form found under the fostering/adopting tab or if you previously had a home check by us email with an address and contact number . 
Please note we do not place our dogs in homes where there are entire males.

Why do we restrict our rehoming area?

We are aware that lots of other rescues home dogs countrywide but when PDiN was set up a decision was made to keep all our dogs close by and it works well for both us and our dogs. We put a lot of input into our dogs, we personally know each and every one of them and we want to keep them close by. PDiN is run by a small group of hard working dedicated volunteers who give their free time up to help us to find the perfect homes for our dogs, they do the home checks, they place the dogs, they liaise closely and offer help and backup with the homes while the dogs is in either foster or on trial, they help with vet runs, training advice and lots more and when the time is right they complete the adoption. After adoptions have taken place we are always here if needed for both the dog and the homes and we just could not do all this if we placed dogs outside of our area, we know our limits and we stick to them for the sake of our dogs and their new homes. Once a dog comes under our safety net it stays there for life.

We are sorry that people think we are just being awkward we assure you that is not the case, we just know our limits and stick to them for the sake of our dogs and our very hardworking little team of volunteers.

Hattie- Available Now

Hattie came into us due to having some behavioural problems not helped at all due to her poor start in life but in the right hands Hattie has learnt so much and improved lots.

Hattie is a very clever active girl who needs a home that fully understand her needs and will not let her push boundaries she's very food orientated and would do well at agility or obedience. She would not suit a home that worked and left her alone for hours every day.

Hattie will not be placed in a home with children or cats but could possibly live with another dog.

Hattie is just 14 months old and so eager to learn.

Patsy is a young neutered crossbreed girl (probably Patterdale x Staff). She is looking for her forever home now. She needs a dog experienced home where she is the only dog.

Ozzie will let you know if someone is coming in or knocking by barking. He likes going out in the car and is a good traveller.

He is untested with cats and would prefer a home with no young children.

Toby - Reserved

Toby is a 5 year old Chi who came to us when his owner died. Being a typical chi he likes his own way and he will need a quiet dog savvy home. His ideal home would be a lady on her own as he really isn't keen on men. He does have a tendency to bark at visitors to the house. He won't be rehomed where there are children or small children who visit frequently. He is in foster with other dogs and whilst there are no issues he doesn't interact with them at all... so we feel he would prefer to be an only dog. He has no issue with cats. He is clean in the house and non destructive and is fine to be left for 3 or 4 hours. He travels well in the car. He has some arthritis in his knee which the vet isn't too concerned about but because of it he does need a home who is sensible about keeping his weight down and just taking him on regular short walks. He loves a cuddle when he gets to know you and does like to sit on a knee.
