Our Story...

In 2019 a group of volunteers held a fundraising event for a wonderful Shar Pei called Bruno. He had been at the hotel for many months and badly needed a Total Ear Canal Ablation (TECA) surgery on both ears. As Cardiff Dogs Home is council run, paying thousands of pounds of tax payers money for a dogs operation simply was not possible. Similarly, it was difficult to rehome Bruno as whoever adopted him would need to pay thousands for the surgery. As the wonderful staff at the home hate to see a dog suffer they asked some of the volunteers if we could fundraise to help him and so thanks to our Bruno, The Rescue Hotel was born.

Since Bruno, we have fundraised to cover the health costs of many more dogs at the hotel. Sadly due to bad breeding practices and the increasing demand for dogs brought about during the pandemic, our veterinary bill continues to rise. We will never see a dog suffer though and will continue to do everything we can to ensure that all dogs who check in to the hotel are as happy and healthy as can be.
