Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre was set up in August 2001, and opened its doors in March 2003. The purpose of the charity is to rescue, care for and rehome stray and unwanted dogs. The charity raises funds through subscriptions, donations, sales from its charity shops in Dumfries, Dalbeattie, Annan and Newton Stewart and other fund raising events. We are members of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) We rely on the local community to provide the majority of the funds that keep the rescue centre going. Fund raising events are organised right across the region.
