The main focus is to help dogs in need, though they have a range of different animals in their care that are all looking for their forever homes.

The team at Claremont Parkway supported Lainy’s Rescue, by collecting animal food for them.

As a thank you for their donations, when Lainy’s Rescue came to collect the food they brought one of their rescued dogs Harry.

Harry was found wandering the streets of Wellingborough, and both residents and team members loved meeting him.
