The Beginning of Miss Mollies Rescue
Miss Mollies Rescue was set up by Jeanne Thompson in approximately 2003. Working alone she took in unwanted and abandoned dogs both from the local area and also from abroad, mainly Spain and Romania. Jeanne funded the transport and veterinary care herself and often took in the dogs that no one else would take on, be it due to a disability or other medical problems or old age. Jeanne’s heart has a place for all dogs.
The dogs that come into Jeanne’s care are assessed, rehabilitated and rehomed, although some have stayed as long term residents.
Jeanne speaks about her wishes for the rescue
” All we want at the end of the day is for dogs to find nice, loving , forever homes. We vet everyone who wants a dog to make sure we are matching them to the right dog that suits them and their lifestyles. We get to know the dogs very well so we know what type of home will make them happy. There is the right home out there for every dog”
Miss Mollies has a Facebook page
In October 2013 whilst out walking their own dog a member of the public began chatting to Jeanne about the dogs and thus the Facebook group for Miss Mollies Rescue was founded which has a following of over 3000 members. Facebook has been a great way to introduce new dogs, also to show rescued dogs happy in their forever homes, it’s such a pleasure for us to have updates and to hear about adventures the dogs have.
Competitions, raffles , fund raisers and the November Auction of Promises help raise much needed funds for the continued care of our rescue dogs.
A group of dedicated people volunteer to help Miss Mollies Rescue in various ways. These include: collecting and fostering dogs, completing home checks, fundraising, administrative work and the running of Miss Mollies Charity Shop which opened in 2015 and is a full time job alone. There are hundreds of hours each and every week that are freely given to help these dogs find their forever home.
Appointments to meet our dogs
Miss Mollies currently do not have a rescue centre as such , we rely on people to foster and we also use the facilities of kennels for some dogs. We would dearly love to find our own place to set up Miss Mollies Rescue Centre and hope this can be a future goal. Bearing this in mind, we please ask anyone who is interested in any of our dogs to contact us and we will happily discuss and arrange an appointment to meet our available dogs.
Sponsoring and Donations
Kennels are greatly discounted for us but still cost £35 each week for each dog. If you would like to sponsor a kennel for a week or longer this would help us enormously. Likewise, donations are greatly appreciated if you feel able to contribute to Miss Mollies Rescue, we would be very grateful
