A World of Opportunity
Rescue World is the new site from Dogs 4 Rescue, destined to become a Sanctuary and Rehabilitation Retreat for the dogs no one wants.
We have already secured planning, discharged conditions, completed groundworks and the Phase 1 build is well underway.
Set on the outskirts of Accrington, Lancashire, it is an idyllic 41-acre plot with undulating mature countryside and tree lines with opportunities as big as our imagination.
Whilst the current buildings are derelict we have already built the first communal dogs’ log cabin. The site also has a large number of additional existing footings and includes an old reservoir which will be perfect for a rewilding project, as well as land for rescue farm animals.
Solving the Problem
Our new site will provide a solution to one of the biggest issues in rescue: what to do with the dogs who need an alternative to traditional kennels, the ones who have shut down and the ones that never get offered a place on the ‘happy bus’.
Rescue World will welcome its first 20 dogs by Summer 2023, freeing up spaces at our Irlam site to transition back to a rehoming centre.
