Mutts In Distress

Mutts in Distress is an animal shelter located at Normandale Kennels, in Little Hallingbury near Bishops Stortford on the Hertfordshire / Essex border. They rescue dogs from local pounds that would otherwise be destroyed, and offer them for rehoming.

Poodle Network Uk

We are the UK's ONLY registered charity dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of Poodles of all sizes, across the UK. If you are looking to adopt a Poodle or need to have yours rehomed, please get in touch today.

Poodle Network UK was founded on Sunday 30th November 2013 by Susan Horsfall. It was clear there was a desperate need for a Registered Charity dedicated to the rescue of all three sizes of Poodle throughout the UK. Before us, if you needed to rehome mixed sized Poodles, you needed to contact different rescues and often dogs were being needlessly separated. On that same night, Susan received a call about two puppies- Hugo and Mac- who needed rehoming. They became the first rescues of Poodle Network UK.

Susan’s vision was for a UK wide charity who guaranteed to take all poodles in need, care for them, rehabilitate them and rehome them with a single point of contact, so people were not being passed from branch to branch. Susan and our other Trustees & Patrons wanted all our donors to have the security and certainty that 100% of their donations went to the care and rehabilitation of the Poodles we rescued; and our registration with the Charities Commission in 2015 ensured this. In 2017 we were proud to be asked to Continue Ann Coppage's work by incorporating her South West Poodle Rescue into Poodle Network UK.

We are now averaging 8 rehomes per week and the number is rapidly increasing.  Today PNUK has a large network of volunteers with more joining us every week, and we cover the whole of the UK. Our unpaid volunteers all share the necessary requirement of passion and love of Poodles and include a UK wide network of fundraisers, fosterers, home-checkers, dog behaviourists, vets and veterinary nurses, groomers & transporters, who together also provide the much-needed skills in finance, computers, organisation and law; all of which are needed to run a successful charity.

We are a Kennel Club Registered Breed Rescue and use their recommended Anilog system to track all of our dogs throughout their life.We have been invited to attend Crufts in 2014, 2015 & 2016 and the KC Discover Dogs in 2014, 2015,  2016, 2017 & 2018 as the Breed Rescue.
