The Rescue Hotel

You can't change a dog's past, but you can re-write their future.


Get ready for the Rescue Hotel’s biggest event yet – Bark in the Park 2024! Join us at Romilly Park in Barry on Sunday May 19th for a day of fun-filled activities for your furry friend and the whole family.
Don’t miss the chance to enter your pooch into our exciting doggy dash, agility, and sponsored dog shows, where they’ll have the chance to win some amazing prizes.
While you’re there, be sure to explore our variety of stalls and vendors and grab some delicious lunch for the humans from the variety of street food vendors.
Entry is completely free, and all proceeds from the day will be donated to Cardiff Dogs Home, a worthy cause close to our hearts. We’d also love to extend a special invitation to all ex-residents – we can’t wait to see you there!
Don’t miss out on this fantastic event, mark your calendars for Bark in the Park and let’s make it a day to remember!

James Arthur

On Wednesday 20th April we were invited to meet James Arthur and his crew backstage before their show in Cardiff. We of course brought some residents along with us; Huw, Doris, Deb, and Eric, they had the best time. We’re incredibly grateful for the invitation and the chance to spread some love and promote just how awesome rescue dogs are. Thank you for making our day extra special! We wish you all the luck for the rest of the tour.

Frenchies/Bullys/English Bulldogs

At the Rescue Hotel, we’ve noticed a significant increase in the number of bull breeds, particularly French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs, and Pocket Bullies. These “designer” dogs have become increasingly popular, but sadly, many of them arrive at our doors struggling with day-to-day challenges. Most of these dogs come to us as strays, having never experienced love and care, often being used solely for breeding purposes. Despite their difficult pasts, we ensure that they receive the utmost care and attention during

Our vets

The Rescue Hotel Health Centre was born out of a desire to improve the health and welfare of the less fortunate dogs in Wales and frustration with mainstream Vet Practices not catering for their needs.

Cardiff Dogs Home operate a re-homing procedure which aims to find the best possible home for each dog in our care.
