Freshfields Animal Rescue is a small charity, which has recently celebrated its 30th Birthday. In that time we have cared for and rehomed 1000's of animals.

We have four main areas established at the centre. These are 3 dog/puppy units, a large cattery area, a wildlife unit and an area for farm animals. We have a very dedicated team of long term staff who are caring and experienced.

All our dogs are neutered, fully vaccinated and ID chipped. This costs us £115 so we usually ask for a donation of this amount to cover our costs, although this is not the case with older dogs. The ID chip always stays in the name of the rescue. We will re-home to any area. We always carry out home checks in respect of all our dogs. All dogs must be house dogs, we would not rehome where outside kennels were present. Please note that we do not home to families where there are children under five years old.

Please feel free to contact Freshfields Animal Rescue any day of the week preferably after noon. We are open every day between the hours of 12-4. Please note that anyone interested in one of our dogs is usually asked to visit us first and meet the dog at the rescue.

AS OF 13/8/07 FRESHFIELDS KENNELS WILL BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC EVERY MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY AND KENNEL STAFF WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE. THIS IS SO WE CAN CARRY OUT VITAL BEHAVIOURAL WORK WITH OUR DOGS. WE HOPE THIS DOES NOT CAUSE TO MUCH INCONVENIENCE.

Murphy is a 6 year old male lurcher who is fully vaccinated and neutered.


Murphy was dumped at our front door in poor condition. He was thin, had a terrible coat and a wound to his foot and tail. After a short time feeding him up and taking care of him, Murphy is a strapping young lad! He is the biggest lurcher we have ever seen! Murphy loves affection and despite his size often attempts to get on our knee for a hug, much to the staff's amusement!


Murphy doesn't like other dogs, but as long as he is walked at quiet times or in quiet areas, this can be easily controlled. Like most lurchers Murphy doesn't like small animals either, so should be the only pet. Murphy is a really sweet dog, he has had a hard life, a sad history and we would love to see him happy in a new home.

RUFUS is a four year old male cross german shepard dog. He is neutered and fully vaccinated.

Rufus was found tied to a railing, half starved and with a damaged head - some heavy object had been used.
The dog lover who rescued him restored him to health but he was always over energetic and puppy like. Unfortunately the man couldn't keep Rufus so he came to us.

Rufus went to a new home a few months ago, he bonded well with his new family whom he loved very much. However, like many GSD's, he has an instinct to protect his loved ones. So in a sense of loyalty, he wouldn't let strangers into the house and unfortunately he did bite somebody that visited. Despite this Rufus is an adorable boy. He has been so badly mistreated in his life so it is not surprising he worries about letting strangers into his home. Please don't dismiss Rufus because of this. He would love a safe, loving home so much and would just need locking away when strangers come into the house. This problem could be very easily managed by a sensible owner.


We would prefer an experienced GSD owner for Rufus. He would need to be the only pet as he desn't like other dogs. Again this can be managed by walking him in quiet areas or quiet times.

Please help this lovable boy find a forever home!

DUGGIE is a 9 month old male SBT cross. He is neutered and fully vaccinated.


Duggie was brought to the rescue as a stray, he was an excitable little guy who needed plenty of stimulation. Duggie was sadly returned to us as his new home felt that they could not cope with him. He is acting like a typical adolescent; pushing the boundaries and generally being cheeky! When Duggie gets excited he tends to get a bit mouthy and so we are looking for an experienced home who will patiently and calmly work through this with him.



Duggie is going to need and active home with no other animals or children, he is a confused little boy who is sick of hearing the word "no" and desperately needs some positive reinforcement. Duggie deserves a second chance of a loving home. He needs a committed person who will not give up at the first hurdle!

BRUISER is a 4 year old male American Bull Dog. He is neutered and fully vaccinated.

Bruiser has spent his entire life confined to a garage with no chance to socialize or any stimulation. Thankfully he was brought here and since being here he has proven to be a real character! Bruiser loves to be around people and is quite distressed when left alone in his kennel. He is extremely bubbly and is really enjoying getting out on walks.

Bruiser does not like other dogs and we feel that he would best benefit from being the only pet in a household. He is a lovely boy but he will need a patient home who will teach him how to live in a home. He is also quite strong on the lead so any potential home must be sure that they will be able to walk him safely.

Freya was brought into the rescue as a stray, but nobody came forward to claim her. She is a very young lively little girl, that is full of mischief! Freya is finding life in kennels so stressful that she will vent her frustration by chewing on the lead when out on walks. This is Freya's way of trying to deal with the stresses of kennel life, for this reason, Freya has been moved from the kennel and is now in a room by herself were there is less noise and commotion to upset her. Freya is currently only being taken out on walks by staff so that we can ensure that she is not getting too much for her to deal with.

Freya can be naughty with other dogs when shes on the lead. Freya would probably best suit an adult only home and a home without any other pets. Kennels are not the ideal place for young dogs to grow up as they do not get enough time and attention devoted to them. As Freya is still young she will require somebody to be home most of the day to give her the time and attention she needs and deserves.

RUBY originally came to the rescue as a puppy and was quickly rehomed. Sadly 10 months later and she is now back again because her owner was not allowed to take pets to her new home. Ruby is a real character who is always full of beans! She was very frightened of the staff at first but after a bit of TLC and serious determination she now has a group of new friends who she is always happy to see! Ruby is a really feisty little girl and she is certainly not afraid of telling people when she's not happy; for this reason she will need a home with no young children. Ruby also doesn't like other dogs so she will need to go to a home where she is the only pet, preferably with someone at home most/all of the time.

Ruby is a fantastic little girl with bags of character, but she will need an experienced, patient home who will love her for who she is!

MISSY was found in Formby alongside Mutley; Mutley was wounded and they were both desperately thin. We aren't sure how long they'd been straying, but they had been sighted over several days! Many kind people attempted to catch them, but cold and frightened they would not allow anyone to approach them. Eventually a Freshfields volunteer managed to rescue the dogs from under a bush where they had been sheltering. Missy and Mutley are now safe and warm at the rescue and they have certainly brought a little sparkle to the centre.

Missy is a lovely dog who is extraordinarily excited by everything life throws at her! Although a bit confused by the concept of walking at first, many volunteers have stepped forwards to help, and Missy now enjoys going for walks so much she positively screams with excitement at the prospect!

Sadly the stress of kennel life has caused Missy and Mutley to fight, they are very stressed in their kennel together and for that reason we have come to the difficult decision that these two dogs should be rehomed seperately to avoid future problems. (We are by no means against the idea of them going to a home together, anyone wishing to take them on must be prepared to give them the time they deserve to get used to living in a home again.)

Missy has endured a great deal but has still come through the other side with a waggy tail for everyone she meets. Missy is probably the quieter of the pair in some respects but she is going to need a patient home with no other pets or young children. But don't overlook her for this reason; she will make a very entertaining and loving friend to the right home!

COOPER is a six year old black Labrador cross. He is neutered and fully vaccinated.

Image
cooper2012_(576_x_864) by Official Freshfields Animal Rescue, on Flickr

Cooper was tied up to our car park gates with a note saying his owner was disabled and couldnít walk him. He is very frustrated by kennel life. He is a young, energetic dog who demands a lot of attention but hasnít been socialised with other dogs so therefore isnít very good with them.

Unfortunately as he isnít good with other dogs, the kennel environment isnít ideal. The noise and commotion upsets him and causes him stress. We are trying to keep him as calm as possible and take steps to cause him as little stress as possible. Cooper has great potential. Away from the rescue we feel he will thrive and make a lovely companion friend. He is a lively, bouncy boy so we feel it is appropriate to ask for an adult only home. He is very intelligent and will do anything for food.



Overall, Cooper is a fantastic dog who will make a great friend. As explained Cooper isnít good with other dogs, although we feel with the right socialisation programme this may improve. He is quite stressed so a calm, gentle home would be necessary. His new owner should be part of a quiet, adult only home and and have previous experience of dogs., They need to be patient and committed, the ability to keep him calm and relaxed will help him settle down.

Krispal is a seven year old male cross breed. HE is neutered and fully vaccinated.

Krispal is one of 5 dogs that we have taken in from Romania. Another charity asked for our help after the founder/owner of a Romanian rescue had died, all 350 dogs were in danger of being put to sleep unless help could be sought for them from around Europe. Luckily for these lovely dogs we were able to help and subsequently took in 9 dogs altogether (4 went to our Welsh rescue and 5 stayed here in Liverpool). We are so glad to have been able to help save these little lives and meet these wonderful dogs! Krispal was so scared after the gruelling 3 day, non-stop journey from Eastern Europe. He has taken a few days to adjust to his new surroundings, but every day he makes massive progress!

He was very timid to begin with, but now greets us with a waggy tail and lots of hugs! He loves sitting quietly with you getting stroked and fussed and buries his head into asking for more, he is a gentle, sweet natured boy and the staff have fallen for him big time! However, although he now adores the staff, he is still very wary of meeting strangers, which means any potential home would have to put some time into getting to know him and gain his trust (especially men). As an ex street dog, he needs a home with no children at all.

He would benefit from a calm home environment with previous dog experience. He needs a patient home that will understand how hard his life has been surviving on the streets, living in a rescue and then travelling thousands of miles to make a new life for himself. He may take a little while to settle, but without a doubt, this boy will make the most faithful friend. He has shown himself to be a genuine, absolute darling. Please give him the loving home he deserves!

Skinny is a 15 month old male cross breed. HE is neutered and fully vaccinated.

Skinny is one of 5 dogs that we have taken in from Romania. Another charity asked for our help after the founder/owner of a Romanian rescue had died, all 350 dogs were in danger of being put to sleep unless help could be sought for them from around Europe. Luckily for these lovely dogs we were able to help and subsequently took in 9 dogs altogether (4 went to our Welsh rescue and 5 stayed here in Liverpool). We are so glad to have been able to help save these little lives and meet these wonderful dogs! Skinny is a bouncy, fun-loving boy, he is just so happy and loves life!

After his ordeal of travelling for 3 days non-stop from Eastern Europe, we expected him to take at least a few days to settle down, but by the next morning, he was our long lost friend! He loves running around the field, playing with his kennel mate, coming over for a hug then exploring some more. He is an absolute gem of a dog! As he is an ex-street dog he will need a patient home that will allow him time to adjust to home life at his own pace. We would also like a home with no young children (over 15 years only). He is only young so will need somebody home for most of the day.

Skinny will make a fantastic family friend as he is so loving and full of fun!

Noodles is a male 4.5 year old Shar-Pei.

Noodles was brought to us as his owners were working full time and had no time for him. He is a loyal boy who has been devoted to his family for 5 years. Like most Shar Pei's he gets very stressed and worried by new situations, so he is a little wary of kennel life, but we feel sure that once he settles we will see this lovely boys personality develop!

Noodles has lived with children in his previous home, but due to his nervousness in kennels we feel he would be better adapting to a home with no children or with teenagers only. Noodles is a bit barky with other dogs but this can be managed by walking him at quiet times and quiet areas. Again, like many dogs of this breed he can be protective in his home environment, his previous owner said once he was introduced to a stranger in his home a few times he would accept them, but was wary of them to begin with.

Noodles will make a fantastic, loyal companion for someone, he just needs some time to gain trust then will show off what a sweet boy he really is. He would benefit from a home with previous experience of this breed or of nervous dogs. Please give Noodles a home!

Mr Chips is a 3 year old male cross breed.

Mr Chips was brought to the door as a stray and sadly never claimed. He is a beautiful friendly little boy who loves to walk and seems to have settled into his new kennel well. He was so frightened at first and is still very timid around new people but it must be hard as he has been passed around an awful lot since first coming to our door.

Chip desperately needs a home where he can love and trust someone for the rest of his life. HE is unpredictable with other dogs and would nee to be the only animal in the household. Because we have no history on him we would like him to go to a home with no younger children.

Buster is a two year old male bull mastiff cross.

Buster came to the rescue as his original owner was threatening to put him to sleep as they no longer wanted him! Buster finally found a friend who loved him very much, but sadly after his owner fell seriously ill poor Buster is back to square one!

Buster is a big, bouncy affectionate lad who just loves people and walks. He is a big strong boy who will need a home with someone fully capable of walking him safely on a lead. Sadly Buster doesn't like other dogs but this isn't a problem as long as he is walked at quiet times of the day and in quiet areas. This big, affectionate boy really deserves another chance to make someone a wonderful friend!

Buster will need somebody to be home most of the day as he is still young.

Ozzy is a three year old male labrador.

Ozzy came to the rescue 18 Months ago as a stray and was never claimed. He went to a new home where he lived on a livery stables. After 18 months his home contacted us to say he had bitten someone and they no longer wanted him. Ozzy was then returned to us. We later received a letter and email from somebody at the stables who had spent a lot of time with Ozzy and described him as a wonderful dog. This person believed Ozzys bite was out of character and the reason he had bitten was through a lack of attention from his previous owners.


We have certainly had no problems at all with him, he is an absolute hit with the staff and dog walkers alike! Although we would ask a new home to air on the side of caution when walking Ozzy or letting him around strangers etc. This adorable boy has shown himself to be well behaved, clean, playful and good on his lead whilst at the rescue. He is a bit of a plodder, but has an entertaining playful side. And he just loves to sunbathe! We would like an adult only home for Ozzy, with previous doggy experience. He doesn't like other dogs so needs a sensible home. He doesn't go mad at the end of a lead when he sees a dog but he does not like them if they try to come and say hello to him!

Ozzy will make a wonderful friend for someone, he just needs a chance!
