Dog of the Week
We work closely with the Dogs Trust in Ilfracombe and K9 focus in Torrington. We want to help these charities to give home to the stray and abandoned dogs of North Devon and you can help too! Every Wednesday morning we feature a K9 companion looking for their "forever home" on The Voice Dog of The Week. We also talk about the joys of re-homing and of course walk you through the entire process!
For more info have a look at the Dogs Trust's & K9 Focus' websites:
This Week's Dog of the Week is Cher
Cher is a beautiful one-year-old tan Saluki-Cross. She arrived at the centre in August after being found as a stray.
Although quite a shy girl she comes around quite quickly when you have treats to offer. Once she knows you, she is a happy, friendly girl and enjoys gentle fuss and affection. When she is comfortable in your presence, Cher enjoys playing with soft toys, having a game of chase and curling up in a bed with her kennel mate.
Cher would love to find her special someone. She is looking for an adult-only home, possibly with older teenagers if they can give Cher time to settle. Multiple visits are advised to build a bond with Cher before taking her home. Cher could possibly live with another dog if the dog’s temperament is calm and chilled. Given time, love and patience Cher would blossom in the right home and be a super pet.
If you think you can give Cher the loving, forever home she deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.
Previous Dogs of the Week
Buster is a five year old Greyhound cross Ridgeback. He is a tall, stocky boy who plods a long nicely on lead right by your side.
He adores human company and sometimes forgets his size when he runs to greet you, so he is learning to say ‘hello’ with all four paws on the floor. He loves to give big sloppy kisses and loves affection. Buster is a sociable boy; he has been sharing his kennel since arriving at the centre and has previously lived in a home with other dogs. He is a bright dog who already has his basic training, and for nice tasty treats, he is keen to learn more. He is house-trained and enjoys stretching out on a big comfy bed.
Buster is a big, bouncy boy, looking for a loving home with adults or older teens that he won’t knock over. He could possibly live with another dog but not cats or small furries.

If you think you can give Buster the loving, forever home he deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.

Rory is an adorable and tall, two- year -old Greyhound that arrived at the centre in June after retiring from racing.
He is a fun-loving lad who enjoys playing with squeaky toys and having a good sprint around when he is off lead in the garden. When he walks on lead he plods a long beautifully by your side. He is a joy to take for walks. Since arriving at the centre he has been enjoying sharing his kennel with another greyhound. They play nicely together and he enjoys her company. After a nice walk and a play he enjoys stretching out on a nice comfy bed. He is known as a 40 mile an hour coach potato!
Rory is looking for a loving home where he could live with children twelve or above. Greyhounds do not require copious amounts of exercise. After a walk and a play Rory loves to snooze and stretch out with some home-comforts. Rory does not have experience of what life is like living in a home therefore the time left a lone will need to be built up slowly. Rory is happy to jump into a car to go out for walks and could possibly live with another dog.
If you think you can give Rory the loving, forever home he deserves, then please give our Canine Carers a call at our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709, we are open every day between 12noon and 4pm except Wednesday when we are open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.
