To help you in your search for your new friend this page contains a map of locations, website links and contact details for pet rescuers around the country.
The contacts listed on the map do not include nationwide council pounds where you might find other critters waiting for your love and attention. Please visit the Council Pounds page to find pounds and shelters in your area where you may also find a deserving creature just waiting for you to adopt them.
The locations listed on the map are a guide only. Many pet rescue groups have a large network of volunteers and foster carers spread over a wide region. If you haven't found a group listed near you, it doesn't mean there won't actually be somebody in your vicinity. Please enquire with the pet rescue groups around you. You will probably find that there is an animal for adoption in your region just waiting for you to find them.
Also, some pet rescue groups can make arrangements to transport an animal to you. This depends on time and resources, but you won't know if you don't ask.
If, upon contact, they don't have the companion you have been looking for, they can probably point you in the right direction to somebody who does. Some pet rescue groups/individuals will also take your details and put you on a waiting list. Most groups have a high rescue rate, so will have more lovely, deserving animals for adoption on any given day.
The links below, mainly Facebook pages, are organised by people who have a love of animals and want to help get the word out about the animals that need rescue or adoption. They are not necessarily pet rescue groups but assist by cross-posting and sharing. Take a look here too!
