“MANCHU” (known to us as HARLEY). This adorable little boy has been rescued from a Chinese meat market with the help of Eva Dudas from Saving Harbin Dogs rescue, his journey covered more than 6000 miles an arduous journey indeed, a stop off for a couple of days in Malaysia and then onto Heathrow.

We do not “buy” dogs, however we have paid for his flight of which none of the money came out of the rescues general funds and was raised solely in his name with support of our members.

This rescue Is a one off, a sheer indulgence for a small rescue and a lifelong dream for its founder Joy Wright who has worked tirelessly for many years to help dogs, it also shows us what we can achieve with support of our fabulous supporters. Yes there are thousands of dogs in this country needing our help we never turn a dog in need down, we cannot save the world as much as we want to.

Welcome to the UK MANCHU ( Harley) your future is no longer being on someone’s dinner plate but a life of love, fun and safety which all dogs deserve, you’re a STAR boy now everything is going to be fine, we promise you that.                          Came into rescue 3rd nov 2021


ALFIE! This beautiful little 5yr old has been paralysed from his waist down for the past 2 yrs., double incontinent, he dragged himself around the garden at his previous home over gravel ripping his skin. Although his previous owner loved him dearly, he has to work 12 hrs a day and has recently lost his wife, so after asking many rescues for help and being turned down he approached STAR, without hesitation we offered help knowing our vet bills are going to go through the roof, not having seen a vet we do not know what is in store only that we are going to do everything possible to get young ALFIE back on his 4 paws, 

You’re a STAR boy now ALFIE everything will be just fine sweetheartx


This big beast is Buster, he has joined us today. Buster is a shih tzu poodle cross who we believe has bilateral congenital hip dysplasia. We’ll let him settle in and get him looked at as soon as we get access to his history. He is a very patient boy, he put up with 4 hours of me singing along to Bruce Springsteen without complaining which is far more than most humans would. Welcome Buster, welcome to the big family

Came into rescue 6th july 2021


This little chunky monkey has come in due to family circumstances. Well HUGO your a STAR boy now and your certainly going to shine





This little 7 yr old chi X Shih Tzu has come in through no fault of his own, due to his owners ill health she could no longer give him the care he needs, of course when asked for help when stepped up. Well HARRY your a STAR lad now and your going to be just fine, we promise you that.

Please note we are not accepting applications for Harry until he is posted up as ready for his adoption, any recieved before then will be deleted,


Please say hello to Mitch. Mitch has been with us a little while but we decided to just keep him quiet whilst we figured a few things out. Mitch is terribly thin but is responding well to a really good diet. We are aware of some health issues with him but until he has reached a healthy weight it isn’t safe to progress with investigations. Safe to say he has stolen our hearts


This dear little boy is Buddy who has joined us this morning. Buddy needs neutering and has epilepsy so he needs a little time for us to assess him but he seems a very happy little boy

Came into rescue 10th March 2023

This little man is Ruffles, he joined us yesterday. He has a few medical problems that we envisage will take some time to work thru but he did see one of our vets very quickly and should he more comfortable already. Your kindness enables us to help dogs like Ruffles as it appears we are quickly becoming the rescue who step up when others refuse to help
