Oakfield Old Dogs Home need you!

The Oldies need your help! Oakfield Old Dogs Home is a unique building situated at our Roden Rehoming Centre.

Just like people older dogs are not as resilient as the younger generation and it can be a lot harder for them to bounce back. Older dogs can find it hard to adjust to kennel life after living in a family home.

Please DONATE ONLINE today!

Oakfield is a house like any other except for its residents. Up to 12 older dogs will live here and see out their old age and get the extra care and attention they need in a home environment. The dogs are free to wander round where they want, when they want and lovely carers always nearby; there really is no other place like it.

The old Oakfield has recently been refurbished and rebuilt as part of the overall rebuild of our Roden centre. And is due to reopen on November 15th 2010.

Oakfield is run like a normal house with all the fixtures and fittings of your own home. We have furnished the house with the basics but need a little extra help to buy the extra comforts an older dog enjoys.

We are looking to raise £2000 to help ensure these older dogs see out there days in comfort. Can you help?

Please DONATE ONLINE today!

Dogs trust, I just want to say I think you are all amazing doing what you do, I absolutely love dogs to pieces and have a black Labrador and a Deaf Dalmatian who I love with all my heart.

I couldn't do what you do, I would cry everyday and want to take them all home.

We need more people like you in the world, and harsher punishments for people who maltreat dogs (And all other animals for that matter)

I just watched your videos, Pulling on the lead, and Cessie's puppies and had a little weep, I'm so happy they all found good homes, and little Iggle Piggie was kept with her mother.

My lifetime ambition, if I find the money I want to, sorry scratch that.. I WILL be building a big house for me and my family that's perfect for dogs, massive Garden, few acres of land, Huge rooms.
And with this house I intend to Rescue, unwanted, maltreated, deaf, blind, unloved dogs, and give them a forever home, They wouldn't be more loved.

Lets hope I win the lottery hay!

I want to say again, your all amazing and keep doing what your doing :)

From Stacey, Noel, & Bailey and of course, Lucky and Courtney 'Woof' 'Woof'

In 2005 we adopted a beautiful little black dog from Oakfield name Reilly. Shes still going strong except for arthritis in her back legs. We love her so much and will always be grateful to Dogs Trust for what they did for her.
