The objectives of the Scheme, which has its own website, www.flatcoatrescue.co.uk, are to place in loving, caring homes, Flatcoated Retrievers that due to unfortunate or unforseen circumstances require rehousing and to assist, where possible and/or appropriate, with welfare matters concerning Flatcoated Retrievers. Please note the Scheme will assist any Flatcoated Retriever and its Owner/Breeder, in confidence, whether or not the Owner/Breeder is a member of the Flatcoated Retriever Society.
If you know of a Flatcoated Retriever in need of assistance, please contact the relevant Scheme Representative. Assistance may be given to an Owner/Breeder who wishes to take responsibility for a rehousing, regarding possible future owners from the scheme’s waiting list. Alternatively the scheme may take in and house any Flatcoated Retriever (especially urgent cases or Flatcoats with behavioural or other problems).
If you know of a good home that is suitable for a Flatcoated Retriever which has to be rehoused, please contact Brian Jones who keeps a central register of available homes, so that the right home for the right dog can be found, no matter where they are in the country.
We would be pleased to hear from you if you may be able to transport or foster a Flatcoated Retriever or would like to assist the Scheme in any way.
The Scheme operates on its own merit and is self-supporting through fund-raising and donations.
