We are often baffled as to why some dogs stay in our care for such a long time, these beautiful dogs are always pleased to see our visitors but are always overlooked. 
They are happy and loving dogs who are just waiting for their forever homes, if you think you could open up your home to one of these gorgeous boys or girls, please come and meet them at our Benton Shelter.

If we feel we are able to rehome them,
we will (subject to available space) take them in and care for them until a new home can be found.
