You may recall the recent plight of ‘extra special’ but homeless dog, Snowy, who was rescued by a Nottingham charity.

Through no fault of her own, Snowy had already had two owners in her short 18 month life by the time she was taken into foster care by the Animal Accident Rescue Unit. This lovely natured Staffordshire Bull Terrier has very limited hearing but compensates by using her smell and sight. Her fosterer had nothing but praise for Snowy – but has had to say goodbye for the best of reasons:  because Snowy has since been adopted and is loving her new home!

As with all the charity’s dogs, prior to being even fostered Snowy was microchipped, vaccinated and spayed. There are numerous other homeless and lovable dogs and cats needing homes in the Nottinghamshire area alone, and if you would like to either foster or adopt please contact the Animal Accident Rescue Unit.


Entirely run by volunteers and funded by donations, the charity generally always needs more cat and dog fosterers as it does not operate from premises. The great benefit of fostering is that it enables an animal to live in a home environment. If you would like to foster call 0115-8376926. Meanwhile, all potential adopters are home-checked, prior to adoption and an adoption fee is payable. For adopting enquiries, call and leave a message 0115 9985063 from 6pm (for cats), and for dogs call 07922-667776.
