Traditionally, rescues and breeders have been opposed to each other, but to truly make a difference to dogs in this country, this needs to change. Our involvement in all aspects has led us to realise that working together we can make a real and lasting difference to dogs in the UK, treating the cause rather than just the symptoms of the problem.
The neutering schemes that have been adopted by most animal charities, along
with the legal responsibility of councils to employ dog wardens to remove straying dogs from our streets, has dramatically reduced the amount of
un-wanted and un-planned litters, as such we estimate that at least 90% of
litters in this country are planned and could therefore be controlled.
However, many rescue centres are at crisis levels and overflowing with
un-wanted and abandoned dogs.
This is largely due to irresponsible breeders and puppy farmers who breed
purely to make money, these breeders do not take on the responsibility that
should come with taking the decision to bring a litter of puppies into the
world, and when things go wrong, it is the rescue centres, general pubic and
local authorities that are left to pick up the pieces.
There are approx 1,000 dogs a week being needlessly destroyed in this
country. This is something that Chancepixies Animal Rescue are looking to
stop. But to do this we need people like you to offer their support and by
donating to our cause. The more you help, the stronger we are, and the more
animals we can save.
Unlike some other countries, we do not have any form of fit for breeding test
in the UK and this is resulting in too many dogs being bred, with huge numbers being put in rescue and being destroyed every year. With identification, conformation, health and character and the breeds themselves being at risk through irresponsible breeders and owners. Chancepixies Animal Rescue aim to work together with all those that truly care about dogs to ultimately reduce the amount of dogs in rescue by making breeders and owners more responsible, we believe that having such measures in place would reduce the amount of dogs being abandoned and abused.
Our ideals not only will halt the appalling level of neglect and disregard
for dogs in this country, but will also help relieve many of the problems of
ill-health in dogs that have been recently highlighted in the media.
It is our unique stand point not only from rescuing and re-homing these dogs,
but also from a show, work, training, pet and breeding perspective that has
put us in an ideal position to make a difference in the world of dogs in the
UK and you can help us.
