The idea behind "I Need a Home" is to raise awareness of dogs & cats in both South Yorkshire's council stray kennels and smaller / independent rescue centres that are often overlooked in favour of animals from breeders and other sources. All the kennels and rescues featured provide a vital service helping and rehoming those in need, without their help many of them wont get a second chance and in the case of animals in stray kennels may be put to sleep simply to free up space for the next poor animal to potentially suffer the same fate.
Please take a few moments to look at the cats and dogs available, they just need some love and a few creature comforts, in exchange they can offer you a lifetime of devotion.
We are always looking out for more rescue centres and kennels to add to the site - if you know of anyone that would like their animals listed please get in touch.
WEBSITE REBUILD & FUND RAISING (22/10/2016)
The website has been up and running for a good few years now and we'd like to rebuild it so that new features can be added, make it easier to use and generally bring things up to date. We've looked at our options and chosen the software needed, its just a case of paying for it....
We need £140 to purchase the software which on the grandscale of things may not seem much but the website carries no advertising and is free to use which means other than the husband and wife team who created the site cracking open their personal (and rather empty) piggy banks our only real option is to do some fund raising.
CONCTACT FORM ISSUES (11/03/2015)
We're having a few issues with the contact us form - it seems that messages are not always getting through to us and we're being drowned in spam at the same time.... We're working through the the backlog / junk and will post an update asap
The animals below are just a small highlight of the many listed here, you view and search them all using the options at the top left - to specify "any" as a search criteria just leave that option blank / as it is.
Fund Raising For Rain Rescue
We work closely with Rain Rescue and they provided us with a lot of help in getting the site up and running - please help us to return the favour and consider making a regular donation for any amount possible, it really does make a huge difference to them.
If your unable to do this please take a look at other ways to donate on their website.
