Manager Sue Embleton and her hard working and dedicated team would like to offer you a warm welcome to Dogs Trust Darlington.
Darlington Rehoming Centre first opened in May 1994, and since that time we have rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed over 15,000 dogs. A big thank you to all those who have rehomed a dog and who have helped in any capacity with our work.
Today, our centre cares for 120 dogs at any one time, including our Sponsor Dogs, Copper and Apples.
In The Spotlight:
Marty is a 2 ½ year old Spaniel Crossbreed.
Marty is a very active boy who loves being out and about exploring. He is looking for a rural home as he doesn’t like busy built up areas and would love lots of open space to explore. He does enjoy spending time with his doggy pals and could share his home with a nice female dog.
Marty is wary of new people and is therefore looking for an experienced adult only home who have very few visitors.
If you are interested in Marty you would need to visit the centre quite a few times to help make friends.
Marty is such a comical guy and will be great fun to be around!
Crash is a lively fun Lurcher who will be a laugh a minute in a home, but new owners will need to be up for a bit of training. His enthusiasm is infectious and he will love to learn some new tricks. He does need to be kept entertained. he is only a young boy, so needs to brush up on his house training skills and also he needs new owners to be with him for most of the time as he will need his time being left alone built up gradually. He is quite strong, and giddy on a lead, so does need some training, but he'll be bags of fun. He could live with a dog that is already well-trained and will help him to learn the ropes.
Crash will make a fab pet for committed new owners. He could live with a sensible female dog, and with children of about 10 years and over as long as they are up to some rough and tumble.
Do you ever wonder who would care for your dog should something happen to you?
