Wallace Kennels Dog Rescue is family-run with the help from a team of dedicated volunteers.
The kennels have been in operation for over 40 years, initially, as a thriving Boarding Kennels and Cattery which was run by Vera Robinson MBE who sadly died in August 2010.
Over the years it became evident to Vera that there was a growing need to help the unwanted, abandoned and strays in and around the area so that is what she did and the family have carried on; rescue and re-home.
We are the stray dog pound for Brentwood and Chelmsford Councils and occasionally take the over-flow dogs from other Boroughs and, where possible, try to assist other kennels with their over-flow.
Wallace Kennels can house up to 60 dogs and like many Rescue Centres throughout the country, we too are now housing many Staffordshire Bull Terriers or crosses thereof . Other breeds come and go quickly. We pride ourselves on getting to know our dogs and aim to find each and everyone that comes through our doors their forever right home - however long that may take. We do, in principle, have a non-destruct policy but sadly on occasions, for a variety of reasons, it may not be possible to save someone and these decisions are taken jointly and with sadness.
To be able to stay open we rely on the goodwill and generosity of the public. We are extremely grateful for any donations no matter how small – every penny helps us keep doing what we do and improve our services.
As well as cash donations, we are always in need of good quality plastic beds, collars, leads, clean blankets, linen, towels and newspaper. Please feel free to drop anything of use down to the kennels.
