SCRAPPY is a 9 year old male Parson Russell who is looking for a home through no fault of his own. He loves other dogs and is good with children but is fixated with cats, so a home without cats is required for Scrappy. He needs a home with someone who will spend time with him and give him the attention he needs as he is a very active & energetic dog. He will come if you call him, but he does get distracted easily, & his previous owner kept him on a lead when out for a walk - as she lived in the centre of a town. If you are looking for a dog that will keep you on your toes while entertaining you, then look no further than Scrappy.

PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ME?
My name is Bach & I'm what some of you might call a senior citizen. I'm about 10 yrs old, a Labrador-X Staffie, and although I'm a friendly & loving boy, I have been returned to this rescue. I was adopted four years ago &, until now, I lived with a family & their two other dogs. I was loved & cherished, but their landlord says they cannot have three dogs, & so they took the difficult decision to give me up & keep the other two. Because I'm in my twilight years,(& old age doesn't come alone!), these kind people at A.R.C. feel that people may not want to fully adopt me, so they have said that - if they could find the right home, I could go & live out my remaining years as a permanent foster. This means that A.R.C. will meet all my medical needs as I grow older.
If you think you may be THAT family, please contact the lovely people at A.R.C. and they will be able to visit you for a home check & tell you more about me & their permanent foster scheme.
or call into our shop in Cardigan

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.
