How you can help us.........

Are you able to help by giving a monthly donation? Or a one off donation. Every penny of which goes to caring for the dogs. Please give what you can afford to help give these frightened, neglected dogs the care and love they need.

There are lots of other ways you can help us.......

Helping 1 dog won't change the world but it will mean the world to that 1 dog .





1 Dog at a Time Rescue UK is all about putting each dog in the centre of everything we do, finding out what they need, and making sure we find the very best home for them. We always put our dogs first. From the very first moment to the last, each dog is treated with dignity and respect. Without personal ego, we will do what is best for each of them.

Follow the amazing story and recovery of our gorgeous Alisha.


Without Happys this would not have been possible.


Spencer is approximately 1 year old, medium size and neutered . He is very loving, intelligent and playful. He was found abandoned on the streets, has had some lead experience, so sadly probably had owners at some point before they discarded him like rubbish to fend for himself. Thankfully rescued before he was injured or worse on the busy roads. He is very clean in his kennel, such a loveable boy and of course very handsome too. Could be an only dog or live with other dogs. Our volunteers at our shelter say he is absolutely adorable and will give you unconditional love, whoever adopts this precious boy will be very lucky.



Austin & Cooper are bonded brothers. Born May 2018, they have lived at our shelter for pretty much the whole of their lives, sharing a kennel. They are neutered and all their vaccinations are up todate. The brothers were found with their siblings as very young puppies at a truck stop without a mummy before coming to our shelter. So we are looking for a family with the biggest heart, enough to love both these precious boys. Who will give them the time and understanding to settle and adjust to live outside the shelter. They will need lead and basic training. They cannot live with children but teenagers would be fine. They need a quiet home in semi rural/rural location with a large garden. They have so much love to give, could it be you they have waited their entire lives for ?

Important Update

****We wanted to let all of our supporters know that the plans for Happys 2020 are now well under way*****












As we are sure most you know Happy Tails, our Sanctuary in Bistrita Romania, has served us extremely well over the last 4 years; but we now need to make some urgent repairs to ensure Happys is fit for purpose and can carry on safely housing our dogs for years to come.


Hence we are now taking the opportunity that the uncertainty surrounding Brexit has created, to ensure that all the dogs will be out of Happys by the end of October. This then allows us to get some planned maintenance and building works under way. We will be getting all the floors and walls painted and kennel fronts fixed up and coated. Drains need to be dug and electrics need to be updated. The vet room can be fitted out and we will refit all of the windows and doors with repairs and replacements where necessary. We will be building new bedrooms upstairs and developing the flat that is already in place.  So a really exciting time for us all to ready to start welcoming the new dogs and new volunteers in the Spring of 2020.


This also gives the perfect opportunity for Crina and Mugur who have worked tirelessly to help the dogs to have a well earned rest and return home to their beautiful newly renovated apartment. Our huge thanks as well of course to Eli and Doina for all of their love patience and hard work as part of the team at Happys.


We will keep you updated with more information and pictures and video as and when things start moving along. Exciting times ahead.
