MORE than just a rescue
For safe, secure off lead fun or training - Give your dog the freedom they deserve ...
Our Freedom Field is ideal for dog owners who want to let their dog experience the freedom to run and play without worrying about traffic, sheep, cattle or other dogs.
Maybe you have dogs who are reactive to other dogs, or just wish to work on your dog’s recall? In that case the Freedom Field is definitely for you especially if you have a new puppy or rescue dog and wish to train them to be off-leash without the risk of interruptions from other dogs or people and more importantly the risk of fleeing .
Our Freedom Field is a place to exercise and enjoy playing with your dog(s) off-leash book now to share their joy as they run free.
Having issues? There is always a member of our team available to come with you for some friendly advice and direction; we can also arrange for one of our trained dogs to be out with you too if your dog needs some socialisation.
The Freedom Field is available for hire in half hour sessions or multiple by prior arrangement to ensure that you (or your group) are the sole occupiers for your hire period and that there are no conflicting sessions, it is available for individuals or groups of friends to exercise, train or play with their own dogs. The Freedom Field offers you the chance to be in charge of the space and achieve what you want from your dog(s) at a pace set by yourself.
Bitches in season are welcome to use our Freedom Field, puppies will only be allowed to use our Freedom Field providing they have had their second vaccinations. Groups of dogs are also welcome.
Toilets, doggie accessories & essentials are available on site so if you need anything when you arrive please just ask, unlike other sites ours is always manned and help is only a quick chat away! Please ensure that you keep your dog in your car when you arrive until you have spoken with a member of staff.
FRESH PAWS GROOMING
Does your buddy need a pampering?
How about a FULL GROOM or a BATH & BLOW DRY, maybe even just a BRUSH & PAMPER?
Whatever your buddy needs why not check out our professional groomers availability to let your best friend have a pampering. Our new grooming room has been designed for both professional and novice use. So not only can you book an appointment with one of our qualified groomers to pamper your pooch, but we also have D-I-Y slots available too so you can just pop in and use the facilities if you prefer!
So if your happy to shower and groom your dog, but dont have space at home you can now book in and use our facilities without having all the fuss and mess at home! Just bring along any products you wish to use and for a nominal donation to the rescue you can make use of the grooming room.
If you still prefer to leave your dog in the hands of one of our qualified groomers you can just book in drop off and we will let you know when they are fresh and ready to come home.
Are you a groomer with a few hours to spare?
Our dogs need your help! Once in a while its nice to let the dogs in our care have a little pamper too, could you volunteer enough time for just one or two doggies to have a little spa treatment? The kennel environment is not the best for most dogs, and especially longer coated dogs. So we are continually looking for groomers who are prepared to pop in and just help with one or two dogs at a time, or maybe you would be happy to organise a regular session to help with general grooming of the dogs in our care.
Either way if you could offer some time to help make their lives a little better and improve their chances of impressing potential adopters it would be very much appreciated. Please get in touch and let us know - we have lots of doggies waiting to be spoiled.
and Checking Service
The law says you must microchip your dog and keep details up to date - are yours?
We can scan your dog for a microchip and help you to check or even change the details held if required. Just simply give us a call and pop down. All we ask for is a one off donation of £5 for this service.
Please note if your dog is not registered you may have to pay the database company directly to register your dogs microchip.
We have 3 qualified implanters which means our chip implanting service is available at all times. We charge £10 for each dog and the registration fee is £7 for a lifetime of changes (payable to the chipping company). We will help you register your details and show you how to access your account in the future should you need to update them.
We offer a special rate for litters of puppies, which we will happily call out and microchip in your own home, for litters we charge a £10 callout fee and £10 per puppy in the litter that gets microchipped. If you have not registered peddymark chips before you will need to set up a breeder account for a one off fee.
As a charity we had pondered with the idea of opening up a charity shop for some time, however we were unsure of where to have the shop located and it would also mean we would need more volunteers to help, possibly even dedicated to the shop.
During 2020 we noticed that Age UK had vacated their premises in Cheadle High Street, one that they had occupied for nearly 30 years! with the Covid-19 pandemic causing havoc with nearly all UK shops and retailers, we opted to cease the opportunity to take the shop under our wing after striking a deal with the landlord.
The fundraising store in Cheadle was the first ever shop to be opened, dedicated to raising funds for LUOSKO German Shepherd Dog Rescue (registered charity number 1188407).
The shop was taken on in November 2020, unfortunately the Covid-19 pandemic meant that we could not officially open the door to the general public until April 2021 and so after kitting out the shop we decided to launch several on-line sales which went well.
With the news that the UK was finally crawling out of lockdown in April 2021, we finally got to open up the doors to the shop and the general public.
After running for 8 months the shop proved to be an essential fundraiser, in fact we probably would not of survived the tail end of lockdown without the fundraising store!, however we quickly found that space was an issue and started the hunt for a bigger shop.
In December 2021 the property across the road became available and we snapped it up and transferred business to the new shop, now in full swing it has proved to be a great move, now we have dedicated areas for clothes, Books, CDs, DVDs and more.
The original location has been kept for use of admin roles, storage and our new raw food and natural treat outlet - LUNA's LOUNGE, which opened its doors in April 2022, and as of January 2023 went on-line.
If you have unwanted items you wish to donate please contact the shop directly on 01538 269788, smaller items including clothes, toys and bric a brac can be dropped off at the shop whilst larger items can be dropped off at the rescue centre, or photographs can be sent in to us to advertise on this page until sold.
If you have a few hours to spare and you would like to volunteer in our store, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
