BENJI is a mixed breed boy, approx 7yr old, who is looking for a new, experienced home as an only dog & without cats. He can be unsettled when near other male dogs & will sometimes make his feelings known, & for this reason we feel that Benji needs a rural home where he will not come across other dogs very often. He will also be best in a home where there is someone around for a lot of the time. He is a dog that loves routine & a steady lifestyle & he seems to bond more with men than women, but he still loves his cuddles, & they can come from anyone! He loves the car & travels well, & he also loves being brushed. Benji finds it difficult to cope with too much stress & noise, & will need a quiet, laid-back lifestyle where he can chill out whenever he wants.

Compulsory microchipping - Wales
The Microchipping of Dogs (Wales) Regulations 2015 will come into force on 6 April 2016
It will require all dogs over eight weeks old to be microchipped, and the keepers’ details registered on an approved database
Dogs will still be required by law to wear a collar and tag with the owner’s name and contact details on it when it is in a public place after compulsory microchipping is introduced.
The Welsh Government has committed to introducing the compulsory microchipping of all dogs in Wales for Spring 2016, following a public consultation in 2012 which received overwhelming support in favour of compulsory microchipping.
The Welsh Government has cited the intended benefits of the new regulations as helping to:
- Improve animal welfare by making it easier to return a stray dog to its owners
- Develop responsible dog ownership by ensuring greater traceability of owners
- Establish liability and prove ownership
- Assist in control measures in case of diseases that can be passed from dogs to humans
- Deter dog theft
Compulsory microchipping should go a long way towards improving welfare, by reuniting stray and lost dogs with their owners more quickly, whilst also providing government with solutions to a number of issues relating to irresponsible dog ownership. It is also hoped that microchipping will help keep a record of where each dog has come from, to improve traceability and in turn assist with health and welfare issues such as puppy farming.
Of the estimated 450,000 dogs on Wales, only approximately 58% are already microchipped.
We now have the use of a lovely secure MEET & GREET area where our dogs can meet their prospective new brothers & sisters, off lead & in a more natural environment, and also have a great time running around & doing what dogs do best - digging!!
We will have some agility jumps up in the summer for the more athletic dogs to help stimulate their senses (& keep them fit).
Below are some photos of our dogs enjoying themselves.
Thank you Shaun & Kelly at Kelsion Kennels for giving the dogs all this enjoyment.
CAN YOU HELP REUNITE THIS DOG & HER OWNER?
Willow, an A.R.C. dog that was adopted 2 years ago by the lovely Julie has gone missing . She was travelling in the car with Julie when the car was involved in a serious accident in the Grantham area. Julie was injured & Willow ran off into some fields. Willow is microchipped. If you come across her, please contact either of the numbers on Dogs Lost link below, or contact us here at ARC. Let's get Julie & Willow reunited as soon as possible.
Please note - unlike larger, multi-national charities, we DO NOT send out begging letters, or carry out door-to-door collections to raise our funds. We rely entirely on a small band of unpaid, dedicated volunteers to help in our shop, at local shows & with any in-store collections, & we receive no funding from any government body. We are grateful to members of the public who voluntarily donate through our paypal account, & we also ask for a donation for every animal we rehome. Every last penny of this money goes back into the charity to help our animals. Thank you to every body for your support in the past & hope that you will continue to support us in the future.
Our cats & kittens need toys and scratching posts to help them settle in our cattery.
If you have any of these, or any other cat-related items, we would be very grateful.
We also need a rabbit hutch with run. (Our's is past its sell-by date!)
Please let us know by email, phone. or Facebook message

COULD YOU OFFER A HOME TO A RESCUE DOG WHILE WE FIND ITS' FOREVER HOME ?
We are looking for dog-friendly people to join our band of dedicated fosterers to foster our rescue dogs, so that they can learn to live in a home environment instead of kennels. We will always be available for any back up should it be required, and will carry out a home check prior to you fostering the dog.
A sad fact of life is that dogs do go missing from time to time. By having an ID tag on your dog's collar stating your name, address and telephone number, you can save your dog the unnecessary stress of a pound visit. It will also keep you on the right side of the law, as even if your dog is microchipped, your dog is required to wear an ID tag when in a public place. Failure to do so can result in up to a £5,000 fine! Stray dogs can only be picked up by dog wardens, NOT the police or rescues so the first person to contact if you've lost your dog (or if you find a stray dog) is your local dog warden.
Although it is not yet a legal requirement (except as required by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991), it is always a good idea to have your dog micro-chipped with its own unique identification number. This way you can be traced quickly and your dog returned safe and sound.
Under Section 2 of the Control of Dogs Order 2002, every dog on a highway or in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on it or on a plate or badge attached to it. Failure to do so is an offence against the Animal Health Act 1981 for which an owner can be prosecuted and fined.
Any dog without a collar on a highway or in a public place may be treated as a stray dog and seized by the Local Authority.
If your dog strays, you should contact your local dog warden (through the Environmental Health Department of your Local Authority) immediately and stay in regular contact. If your dog is found by the Local Authority, you must pay the Local Authority's reasonable expenses before it will be returned to you.
If after seven days, the owner of the stray dog does not come forward, the Local Authority may transfer the dog to someone else, transfer it to an establishment for stray dogs ( or in some areas, have it destroyed ).
If you are the finder of a stray dog you must either return it to its owner immediately or take it to your Local Authority. If you want to keep the stray dog, you must provide your name and address to the Local Authority and keep the dog for a period of not less than one month.
NB. Under Section 27(5) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is a criminal offence to have a dog on a designated road without the dog being on a lead.
