DAS Dalmatians are an independent non profit rescue and sanctuary and are not affiliated to any other breed specific rescue, breeders or breed club.
We are the only UK Dalmatian sanctuary.
We do not have kennels, the dogs have the freedom of the land and have permanent access to their field.
We believe keeping them in a home environment is much better for their wellbeing so the oldies and poorly kids live with us.
The rest of them live in luxury with leather sofa's and comfy quilts in their part of the stable and are a very happy bunch of kids.
We also help Great Danes and other Giant breeds.
We offer sanctuary to Dalmatians that are deaf, elderly, are acutely ill, end of life care and those that have also been turned away by other rescues due to these and other problems.
If you have a dog that needs our help, please e mail us and leave a contact number with as much information as possible.
Unfortunately for the foreseeable future due to a lack of space, we are not able to help dogs with aggression issues or bite histories.
We also have quite a few deaf kids here at DAS and have rehomed many over the last few years..........they all lead a normal, happy carefree life.
Staying here very long term is not an option anymore due to many, many problems with access, flooding, the land and the stable we live in a bad state of repair outside ie holes in the roof and it not being repaired by the landlord.
Us and the kids deserve so much better for our future.
The newspaper articles that have been published about us to help with publicity are grossly inaccurate and well done the Liverpool Echo for doing the best hatchet job I have ever seen and ruining an article that was supposed to help us.
So we would like make things clear...............
31 DOG DO NOT LIVE IN THE 'HOUSE' WITH US !!!
We don't live in a house ! As you can see from the photos on our Facebook page...it's a stable !!
We live in a triple stable that is NOT converted .... we have a bathroom, a kitchen of sorts and rooms we sleep in.
The Dalmatians we have in our care can not be rehomed due to bite histories and problems, being elderly and ill health.
The kids in our part of the stable are mostly elderly and poorly ones.
The vast majority of the kids live in their third with free sofa's and quilts..... not on our sofa's or beds with free access to their field.
We need outbuildings and or stables for them to sleep in and doss in when they are not out on the land.
This is why we need a farm / equestrian / smallholding place with land and buildings....if no buildings, we can put temporary stables on skids up.
We have spent thousands of our own money into trying to make it livable and as mud free as possible.... an uphill battle when there are no drains and you live on the side of a valley. We are willing to make a place livable again if it needs it.
I don't shovel out 15kgs of food every day..... the kids eat 4 different types of food.
I weigh out each dogs food into their dishes so they eat properly 3 times a day ..... I can tell you who has what exactly and even recognise their dishes.
Our vehicles get damaged driving in and out cos the track is so stoney and overgrown and emergency vehicles can not get down to us.
The roof has holes in it that the landlord is not fixing....need I go on ?
No one in their right mind would 'live' here no matter how many dogs you have and no one deserves to live like this.................
All we want is somewhere habitable or to be made habitable by us to call home for the next 10-20 years.
If you know of anyone who may be able to help us, possibly that is struggling to sell somewhere and my consider renting long term, or has a farm / equestrian place or house with land to rent, please get them to get in touch with us.........
Things have to change ........................
So I ask again................

Rescue is a lifestyle, it's not a hobby, it's not a passing fad.
You live it......breathe it......love it 24/7.
Your purpose for living is to change the life of a rescue pet....one at a time.
If you don't get it........you don't get me.
In every sense of the word.
Adopt don't shop
