Other information (optional):
We rehome mainly from Cyprus, helping many shelters/pounds and individual rescuers but also help UK dogs when we can/are allowed. We have tried many times to help shelter dogs. We help a lot of people giving their dogs away for free on gumtree, and get a lot of people coming to us to re-home their UK pets if they no longer have the time for them. We work to find them suitable, loving homes.
