Dorset Animal Workers Group is a rescue organisation local to the Poole / Bournemouth area run by Helen Griffiths and a group of dedicated volunteers.
We are a non-profit making group and we all give our time, open our houses up as doggie accommodation and offer our cars as doggie taxis freely. We will help all animals but mainly concentrate on dog rescue.
We take in local dogs as well as those from rescues based in Ireland. The rescues in Ireland are struggling to cope with the number of strays they receive. We feel that if any dog, regardless of borders, needs help and if we have the space then we must help. Many 1000s of dogs end up in council pounds as strays and if they are not claimed within 7-10 days they are destroyed. All our dogs are kept in home and family situations with fosterers who have very kindly offered their help. From here they are placed in new homes.
We are always looking for good, responsible homes for our dogs, but prefer to re-home within a 25 mile radius.
