Our Story

The Mutts Nutts Rescue started life in 2010 as three friends wanting to make a difference in Rescue – We initially contributed by helping other Rescues with funding, building facilities, fostering animals, dog walking and running events – it was a steep learning curve! By 2012 we had worked up a head of steam and in 2013 we became a registered Charity focussed on helping those animals who fared least well in mainstream Rescue, mainly those who found themselves without a home later in their lives. It became increasingly clear that we were not just rescuing dogs but their owners too who needed help and support. In 2017 we registered as a people/pet rescue charity dedicated to helping elderly and poorly members of our local community with their dogs and cats.

Since 2017 we have developed HOME, our charity’s four-part comprehensive service, designed to help this vulnerable sector of our community keep their furry friends by their side for as long as possible.

We are proud of our achievements to date. We are keen to make the distinction that we help people as much as we help animals – a rare combination that distinguishes us in the general world of animal rescue.. We take our work very seriously, but not ourselves, hence our name, The Mutts Nutts Rescue. It reminds us to be playful when we can be, in spite of the challenges. We’re a compassionate, friendly bunch, always ready to welcome like-minded, pet loving volunteers.
