Welcome to Chimney Farm International Dog Rescue
At Chimney Farm we rescue dogs in need from within the UK and abroad. We formed our rescue in 2014 and have since managed to rescue and rehome thousands of dogs in need. Our dogs come from a variety of countries and have very sad starts to their lives, they have been let down by humans but with the help of rescuers, fosterers, volunteers and adopters together we can change their lives and give them hope and trust.
Beautiful by name and nature
This is Sabiha (Beautiful).
When she first arrived from Athens this poor girl was so bewildered, it took 24 hours for her to move, but with the loving care of her foster family she has blossomed into a happy girl. She now enjoys family life and the company of her new doggie friends.
It is wonderful to see the changes in her as it would never have happened had we left her to stay in that metal prison cell at the shelter.
She is now ready for a forever home. Could you be the family she needs and deserves?

We are delighted to announce that Humane Society International - UK has chosen us to work with them as their shelter partner to find homes for 7 wonderful dogs who have been rescued by them from the South Korean meat trade.
As you may be aware, dog meat is still eaten by some people in South Korea, although most younger Koreans see dogs as pets not food. Dogs are bred on factory farms and they are not kept in very hygienic or kind conditions. Although the trend of eating dog meat is becoming less popular, there are still many meat farms and dogs in need.
These dogs were held along with more than 90 other dogs which have been living in small wire cages in a dog meat farm in Gyeonggi-do province. This farm is now closing thanks to HSI’s pioneering program through which the charity help dog farmers who want to leave the increasingly controversial industry.
We do not have a set date for travel as the quarantine and travel procedures can be lengthy, so we will keep everyone updated when we have a date for arrival in the UK.
Initially the 7 dogs will go into foster homes, this is to allow them time to settle after their big life change, allow us to get to know them individually and to assess what homes they would be happy in. You can find out more about them on our dogs available for adoption page .We are accepting adoption enquiries but we will not be able to process any at this early stage and ask anyone enquiring to remain patient as we expecting to receive a high volume of enquiries.
Please take a look at this video made by the Humane Society International team shot at the South Korean meat farm and showing how the poor souls live. Over 90 dogs in horrid conditions. But still they remain so happy to receive some attention.
