Welcome to Angels Small Paws Dog Rescue & Animal Sanctuary
Angels Small Paws Dog Rescue was established by Chrissy Marshall in 2010. The rescue is run by Chrissy, with a group of volunteers to help with the administration, fostering, home checking and fundraising. We became a registered charity in 2017.
Angels are committed to making an impact on the rescue of dogs in difficult situations, abandoned, in dog pounds and those on death row. We strive to ensure safe & loving homes are found for all dogs that come into our care.
Angels is run purely on a voluntary basis and we rely on donations and various fundraising events to support the work we do. All donations we receive are used for the needs of the dogs and administration costs which include: vet fees, grooming, transporting, dog leads, collars etc.
Our fosterers provide food and a safe and loving home until the dogs find their forever homes.
We don't use kennels, our dogs are all placed in foster homes.

Luna needs heart surgery for a Patent Ductus Arteriosus (known as PDA).
WHAT IS PDA?
A PDA causes profound changes to heart function. In normal conditions, the pressure in the Aorta is much larger than in the Pulmonary artery. As a consequence, a portion of the blood that should be carried to the body will be diverted through this communication into the Pulmonary artery and will go into the lungs again instead of the body. This blood adds to the blood coming from the right ventricle and this will result in an excessive amount of blood passing through the lungs and returning to the left side of the heart. The amount of blood will depend on the size of the communication.
The PDA must be closed as soon as possible to prevent the left ventricle from going into failure due to the excessive amount of blood it has to deal with.
Scooby is having to be rushed into the vets this morning (7th June), in severe spinal pain. He needs to be admitted and have scans etc. Scooby is only 5 mths old and we are looking at £3000 for today. We have raised £350 towards his MRI already leaving us needing £2650.
Please if you can spare the price of a coffee, it would be more than appreciated.
