The Rescue Hotel

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


Bark in the Park 2023

Get ready for The Rescue Hotel’s biggest event yet – Bark in the Park! Join us at Victoria Park in Barry on May 21st 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 show, where they’ll have the chance to win some amazing prizes. Keep your eyes peeled for some surprise judges who might be making an appearance!

While you’re there, be sure to explore our variety of stalls and vendors and grab some delicious lunch for the humans from El Cabron and The Secret Garden Café.

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!

Head over to for more information.
