Jack had a rough time when he was first handed over to the rescue, as he had a bad ear infection that had been left untreated and was obviously causing him a lot of pain. With a bit of love and some time to recover, Jack was a different dog completely! He soon secured a fantastic loving home for life with Tina and Steven (and their dog Zara).


After only a short time with the rescue, Mia was soon snatched up by Edmund and his wife Sylvia, who just couldn't resist her and fell in love with her straight away. She is now living the life of a pampered princess, enjoying her holidays on their canal boat! 


Sandy was a pound dog. She had been at Aspen for 5 months due to her owners health problems. She is a welsh collie around 9 years old. She is a lovely quiet girl who likes to sleep a lot but does enjoy a walk. She is fantastic with children and good with other dogs but does prefer quiet dogs like her. She was first fostered by Mick and Emma, and is now settling well in her new home .with Tracy and her lovely family.



Merlin is a 15 year old terrier cross. He was brought to our attention by Beryl at Pendle Dog Rescue. His owner worked away and had been leaving him for a few days at a time. He had agreed to let Beryl help him find a good home for him so he could live out the rest of his life comfortably. He was fostered by the lovely Keeley and her family and will stay with them now, sleeping in his comfy bed and being pampered. No wonder he is smiling!



Sophie was found wandering the streets of Colne, as her owners didn't want her any more. She was adopted by Jeanne, securing a loving home for life. Unfortunately, the vets later discovered that Sophie was very ill, and had been for a long time. Her time with Jeanne may have only been short, but we know she was loved and cared for tremendously. We are so grateful that she got to experience real love and happiness, and send our condolences to Jeanne and her family. RIP Sophie, you will be missed. 


Meet Wensley a 4yr old Beddlington Whippet who was very scared and unsure of things when he came to PDIN due to suffering abuse, Wensley is neutered and vaccinated and was looking for a special home to show him that he doesn't have to be afraid any more and he's safe and loved. Jeanne fostered him for us and fell in love with this boy so he will now stay with her forever lucky dog!


Tess was originally found wandering in Padiham. A lot of attempts were made to find her owner but after having no luck she was taken to Aspen. We believe her owner was traced but no longer wanted her so she came to us from the pound. She was fostered by Julie and Ron and their lovely JRT Dotty and settled in there from the start. She has now been adopted, and has secured a loving home for life!


Jaspers owner had not been looking after him too well, he had been living outside and not always fed so was a bit of a mess and very thin when he came to PDIN. After a good groom by Bethany and a lot of tlc from Sam and Kelly he was soon looking and feeling a lot better. He now has his forever home with Sams sister Linzi and is a happy pampered boy who will never be hungry again.


These two little beauties were collected from the pound. They had been taken there by a lady who had found them wandering so very little was known about them. They are thought to be related and around 8/9 yrs old. When they arrived they were coughing and a visit to the vet revealed they had kennel cough which is currently being treated. They are tiny little things, quiet and lovable and they seem to like cuddles and their home comforts. They are brilliant with children and fine with other dogs and pets. Sharon cared for them until they were back on their feet! They now live with Sharons daughter Alix so will be appearing as VIP guests at all PDIN events.



Frank was in the pound and due to be pts when PDIN stepped in and saved him. He went into foster with Claire, Martin and Jenny.

Basil came to us as his owners were struggling to find the time he needed. In his foster home we found he needed a lot of exercise and attention and was not good with cats.

Meet Molly,  she came to us in an awfully weak state she hadn't coped with her time as a stray followed by a week in the pound and hadn't eaten or drunk in days. The vets couldn't find any medical reason for the weak and shut down condition she was in and prescribed plenty of tlc...Molly went downhill and could barely stand on Saturday so we got the vet out who yet again couldn't find any reason for this apart from her being emotionally shut down. One of the team started syringing hydration fluid into her mouth every hour and spent the night cuddling her on the settee and at 3am Sunday morning this little lady decided to give life another go and ate some chicken :-) since then she went from strength to strength and found a lovely forever home with Leanne and her two boys. She then suffered a set- back when it was discovered she needed an emergency operation, however she has recovered well from it and we have to send thanks to Hillendale Landrovers, in particular Lee, who kindly funded her treatment.
