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.
Please follow us on Facebook.
A recent trip to the Asia has brought home to Jen Avila, Founder of Chimney Farm, just how important it is that every one of us makes changes in lifestyle to secure the future of our planet.

Join us in helping the wildlife victims of the fires raging in Australia
Last night a few of us had sleepless night thinking about how many animals have been killed in Australia?
How many have been burnt, how many left without their habitat with no place to go?
Sydney University has estimated that over 800 million animals have been affected in Australia since September. With 480 Million having died. Birds, reptiles, Koalas, Kangaroos, and many more. Koalas are uniquely at risk during these kind of bushfires. While kangaroos and other native Australian animals can move quickly and escape more easily, koalas are slower. Because of this, they are dying en masse.
15 million acres have burned and ecologists have estimated that half a billion animals are now dead. Helping the remaining Australian wildlife should be a top priority for everyone.
Chimney Farm International Dog Rescue have made a £500 donation to a local Australian rescue called WIRES.
When you take a few minutes to look at the articles and photos, our hearts sink. These poor souls have no idea why and no idea where they can now try to live and find food.
Can people really deny climate change for much longer? The Australian government confirmed that 2019 was the hottest and driest year ever on record.
The fires have been burning since September.
15 million acres have burned. (For reference, the 2019 Amazon rainforest fires that caused international outcry spanned 2.3 million acres.)
With ecologists estimating that half a billion animals are now dead, helping the remaining Australian wildlife should be a top priority for everyone.
It may seem like they have raised a lot of funds, but this disaster is going to take years, without human intervention the habitats will never recover and there will be many more animals in need, So let’s make sure they have the funds they need to help.
