Merseyside Dogs Home was established in February 2013 and works closely with the local dog warden services to take in, rehabilitate and rehome the unclaimed and unwanted stray dogs of Merseyside. We are the only rescue in Merseyside dealing with local lost dogs, relying totally on public support. We receive no government or lottery funding so rely on donations from members of the public to continue our vital work. One big focus of our work is education both in the community and for local dog owners. Staff members visit local schools and educational establishments to talk about responsible pet ownership and we also run our monthly consultation days for any dog owner on Merseyside. But Merseyside Dogs Home isn’t just about helping dogs; it is about helping people as well. We know the importance and benefit of human-dog interaction and have pioneered a ‘pets as therapy’ programme along with a local homeless centre to help vulnerable people’s rehabilitation. The scheme helps people who are in need of support to give them hope and purpose through interaction with the rescue dogs.
We are always on the lookout for animal lovers to help at our regular collections and events.
If you are able to spare even a couple of hours to bucket collect in Liverpool or man a stall at our Bark in the Park summer dog show, get in touch below.
Not only that, but there are several fundraising events throughout the year that you can get involved with from skydives to marathons to the fastest zip line in the world!
Or if you have your own idea for a great fundraiser to raise vital funds for Merseyside’s lost dogs? Let us know and we will do all we can to help. We will send you a fundraising pack with lots of hints and tips about organising your own event, and will send you our Merseyside Dogs Home Sponsor Forms.
