The story of Poppy – Well worth a read if you have ever considered fostering or adopting a dog.


As we are getting older we decided no more dogs, but after being dogless for 6 weeks, the house was not the same so via the APT web site we found Poppy a Jack Russell X in Rosemar Kennels . We decided to foster her at first because neither of us were that keen on small dogs. Poppy came into our home and hearts and after 4 weeks we adopted her.

We have also fostered older dogs for APT and Rosemar Rescue that have come into care after elderly owners have gone into care homes or passed away. It is so sad for an elderly dog to spend the end of its life in kennels . Again some have only been with us for a short time but it is so rewarding to have them.

Poppy has now moved to Peacehaven she is so happy in her new home

All vet bills are paid for by the Trust or Rescue medication and special diets are provided if needed, all you have to give is love and time.
