DAS Dalmatians provide sanctuary to dogs that need our help .... we are the only UK sanctuary for this wonderful breed.

We remain here to help those that do have problems that may need to be a sanctuary kid with us after being assessed.

We are in a unique position at DAS that we are able to take dogs at short notice if we have room…. We do not have kennels, the dogs live with us as part of our family.

We are able to take dogs that have behavioural issues that may lead to them being euthanised, if we have room … so far we have stopped this happening to over 70 dogs.

If we are able to rehabilitate your dog, then it will be offered for rehoming and have a life time of back up from DAS.

We also liaise with other rescues, vet practices, social services and police forces around the UK.

We also take elderly dogs and end of life dogs to make sure they live their days out in comfort.


Please contact us via email if you need our help and also include a phone number so that Sue can call you:




If your dog has issues that mean it can not be re homed and will spend the rest of it's life here at DASville as one of our sanctuary dogs. We now ask that you contribute what you can afford each month towards it's continued living costs ....... food/vet bills and anything else the dog needs.

We have limited funding but would not refuse to help your dog due to a lack of funds.

Q.  I need to surrender my dog, what do I do?

A. Get in touch with us.Please give us as much information as possible, we are here for help and advice. We will not judge. Circumstances change and life often throws difficulties at us, we understand that. Sue (who set up and runs the rescue) knows this first hand, having had to give up her dog years ago, which is why she started DAS. She knows how difficult and heartbreaking it can be.


Q. I need to know my dog will be happy and safe

A. Our priority is always the safety and happiness of the dogs in our care. We are happy to update you as to how your dog is progressing.

Q. Can you take my dog straightaway?

A. We would ask that you try to give as much time as possible as we often have a waiting list of dogs to come to us.  We only have limited space at DASVILLE, as our dogs are not in kennels but live 'free range'. However, please speak to us and we will do our best to help.

Q. My dog is not neutered/spayed, is that a problem?

A. It would need to be neutered before it arrived or for you to pay for/contribute to this being done. It would also need to be up to date with vaccinations

Q. I have an old dog that I can no longer look after, will you take it for the rest of it's life?

A. If we have room, then yes we will. We have an ever growing OAP group here who will live out the rest of their days with us. We would ask that you contirbute what you can afford on a monthly basis towards their care as they may need suppliments, more frequent vet visits, hydrotherapy etc and we do not have thousands in the bank to cover it all. It is not mandatory and we would not refuse to help if you can not contribute.
