About us

All these dogs are currently in foster homes throughout Hertfordshire.

Happy Tails

Welcome to our little rescue 

It's important for us to keep in touch with all the dogs we have homed. Here are just a few of their stories.


We need homes

Sponsor dogs

How can you help?

The Little Rescue is a small non profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, rehoming both cats and dogs from the UK and Europe, primarily Romania.

Formally known as DDDR, since April 2013 we have homed over 350 dogs into UK families. Our aim is to find loving homes for our animals where they will remain for the rest of their lives.

The dogs are fostered in our own homes until we find them new forever homes.
Whilst in our care the dogs are treated as part of the family and we show them new things that they may not have experienced before, like car rides, meeting cats, children and discovering other dogs. We also endeavour to teach them basic manners and toilet training if necessary.
We make sure they are healthy happy animals when they are adopted.

Meet our sponsor dogs who have been saved from the kill shelter and are awaiting home offers in Romania.
