Look who will be joining Liberty on that special bus to freedom. Don't have a name yet but who cares, she is coming home.

20th November 2022

At last the border is open again and we can help some poor dogs in Rescue in Romania have a better life. Many rules have been tightened, not a bad thing, just wish they had moved quicker. Let's hope they police the new rules or it's all been for nothing. Top of our to do list, get this little girl to Happy Days.

13th November 2022

Anyone remember the two lovely cats Garfield and Jim we rescued some years ago. Here they are enjoying their very best life. Lucky boys!

6th November 2022

Job done ❤️ Curly Whirly left for his new home today. Someone already in the Happy Days family, home check done yesterday, passed by Sandra, today new life begins for a little fella xxx

30th October 2022

My new little pal. He is just 12 months old. His second home ! have done the right thing and handed him to a rescue to rehome. The reason - not neutered. His lovely new Mum who rescued him didn't know if you put 2 intact males together with a female it's going to end up with fights. I have 5 intact males in my Saturday dogs with problems class!!! Pattern emerging here !!! There is a reason rescues won't rehome to anyone if they have another dog in the home not neutered.
If you are seriously interested in our little Curly Whirly please fill in a pre adoption form on our web site.

23rd October 2022

We love getting updates on our dogs we rehomed so we were delighted with these pictures of Jade on her holidays in Yorkshire. Having a ride on a steam train. She looks so happy. Thanks for the update.

9th October 2022

Can't thank Hannah Jones enough for coming to work with Ash blonde this morning. Ash was really interested in the oils she bought to work with. She really connected with Hannah. Hopefully this could be the breakthrough I dream of for our beautiful girl.

2nd October 2022

Wilfo - it's ok Jill I can go in and out without help today. Where is my chicken, I don't see it in my bowl.

25th September 2022

Sadly Wilfo had a stroke last night. Idiopathic vestibular syndrome for you clever ones. I am broken hearted as you can imagine. As ever I will do my best for him. I was taught a long time ago to keep them in complete darkness until they feel better. I have pulled many old dogs and cats through doing this. Keep everything crossed for our lovely old man, he deserves more time with us being spoiled.

18th September 2022

I removed Ash and Lori's old blanket and gave them a new one. It then disappeared. When I went to look in the run Ash had taken it out and put it on the bed in the run. I have never seen her sit on it before.

28th August 2022

Spent some special time with Lori and his pal Ash blonde this morning. I am sorry they didn't get to have a 'proper' home but neither would ever have coped.
They are well fed, loved and looked after, not stressed as they were for years in the shelter in Romania. I can stroke and brush Lori and still hope one day Ash might let me touch her.

14th August 2022

Wilfo is joining in at last ♥️

7th August 2022

Lovely getting updates on our dogs in their new homes. Me thinks she is very happy 😁. Lucky Freya ♥️

31st July 2022

Lovely Eric left to start his new life today.
Good luck little fella, job done.

24th July 2022

For Ash Blonde's fans. Here she is this morning enjoying her alfresco run she has created. She takes everything I give her outside.

17th July 2022

I wonder how many people paid thousands for a cute puppy this week 🤣🤣🤣🤣. Don't worry Eric, you little star, some one will come along to love you ♥️

10th July 2022

Here is Lucy Locket with her new Mum. Think it was love at first sight ❤️. Just a few little adjustments to make to the fencing and a home check and she will be on her way to start her new life.

3rd July 2022

Here they are. Lucy Locket and Eric, safe and sound. They have had some food and a drink and are tucked up in bed to recover from the journey ❤️. Big thanks to Sue who ended up going all the way to Kent to collect them.

26th June 2022

Our 2 little loves are on their way. Sadly the other little white one wasn't allowed to travel so we had to quickly find Eric a new travel buddy. Enter Lucy Locket. I hope she knows just how lucky she is.

5th June 2022

How lovely, Wilfo had a visitor today. Well done Janice and Wilfo, great to see him improving.

29th May 2022

So here's where we are at, Jenny 😊 will be accompanying Eric on the Happy Bus to freedom.

22nd May 2022

This little lad is in Greece. Things are very difficult in rescue for everyone right now.
He is about 4 years old and blind in one eye.
Thank you to everyone that has donated so far. We have £400 so I have taken the chance and booked him on for the end of June. We have called him Eric.
For those asking how to donate to help this lovely boy, you can donate via PayPal using friends and family with the email address
Or click on the 'donate' link on our website


15th May 2022

Looks like Lori might have listened to my talk on Neuro Plasticity in the Saturday class. He is a perfect example of the theory in practice. Clever boy, out in the run now and telling the world what for, Ash by his side, his buddy.

24th April 2022

Bless his little heart 💜. He comes to me now when I call. Next step, just me and Wilf time.

17th April 2022

We raised a custard cream in memory of our Tammy the Custard Cream Queen who arrived 4 years ago at Easter. We miss our beautiful Tams. RIP Tams we hope they have custard creams for you in Heaven.

27th March 2022

Fabulous to have Elisavet from Greece in class today. She watched part of class to see how we work here at Happy Days. Mimis, Danni and Freya came to say hello again and thank you to the lady that saved their lives.
I hope she will return home happy to know her rescues are in good hands here.

13th March 2022

Have a great life Ethel, lucky girl has moved into her new home today.

6th March 2022

Little Micra has a home, and a brother.

27th February 2022

Lovely Luna left for her new home today. Have a great life beautiful, we are all going to miss you baby girl.

20th February 2022

They are here, a little later than expected due to road closures, but our dog transports always get through one way or another. Introducing Micra and Ethel.

13th February 2022

Micra and Ethel will be arriving at Happy Days this week. Two little girls down on their luck. We will be looking for homes for them after they have got over their journey and have been assessed. Both are small young girls, can't wait to give them a happy days welcome.

6th February 2022

Our little girl has arrived.

23rd January 2022

Very sad news today. Tammy hasn't been good the last couple of days. Not wanting her food, struggling to walk. This morning there was a distinct change in her. She even refused her custard creams.
I always tell people you will know when the time is right to say goodbye to an old dog, today I knew that time was here for Tammy.
She has had a wonderful nearly 3 years here at Happy Days after being found by our friend Carmen locked in a house in Romania. I think the last 3 years have been a bonus for our beautiful girl.

2nd January 2022

Our poopies are ready to move on and find their forever homes. Diana the white girl is in her new home, living the dream.
Mimis and Sammy are lovely boys, friendly with everyone they meet. They are 6 months old.
They will need to be neutered when older, this will be a condition of adoption. They are microchipped and have had all their jabs.
If you are seriously interested in one of our boys, no time wasters please !!! Complete a pre adoption form on our website

26th December 2021

Bye bye Llyndy, you are such a lucky girl. Off you go and live your best life.

19th December 2021

Poopies have arrived.

5th December 2021

Lovely Llyndy is having visitors tomorrow.

21st November 2021

Llyndy came in after class to say hello to a few people. Sandra got to have a cuddle.

14th November 2021

Llindi is on her way. She looks a bit worried. She will get lots of cuddles tomorrow night when she arrives.

7th November 2021

Poor old Tammy isn't very well. Her face was a bit swollen yesterday so we decided to phone the vet this morning for advice. They think it's a tooth abscess so she has had antibiotics and extra painkillers. She didn't want her breakfast but managed 4 custard creams, 3 chicken strips treats and half a cooked chicken breast. She is tucked up in her bed with the hope she will have a little sleep. Hopefully tomorrow the swelling will have gone down a bit.

31st October 2021

Think our little Danni is settled in ❤️

17th October 2021

Sad day, happy day today. Little Danni is leaving us to start her new life. 2 happy people. See you soon baby, have a great life.

10th October 2021

Well here she is. Our next rescue girl. Hopefully she will be here late November.
Introducing Llyndy.
She was dumped by a lake in Greece and left to die. Rescuers found her and saved her. Form an orderly queue please

26th September 2021

Introducing Danny, Our new little rescue boy. He is coming all the way from Greece. He will be here early October. Jill is getting excited to open up our rescue again after such a challenging 18 months. Wonder what our residents will make of him.

19th September 2021

These girls are now sharing a kennel in the hope that Babs will teach NJ that the world isn't so scary and playing is fun.

12th September 2021

Ashblonde and Lorenzo are getting on well. Still only together for a short time. I think they are going to be friends before long and will be a help to each other

29th August 2021

Nita says hello to everyone.

15th August 2021

Happy girl, pram to the bottom of the lane, walked back.

1st August 2021

Nita visits Maddie the Dentist.

11th July 2021

Babs loves having people over to play with her.

4th July 2021

Wilfie is joining the family slowly, at his pace.

13th June 2021

Pauline, just playing out with her pals.

6th June 2021

Babs enjoy the sunshine.

23rd May 2021

Having fun with Nora/Joanie today, doing a bit of training outside, trying to get her used to having a lead on.

16th May 2021

Hi Ashblonde, fancy a natter?

9th May 2021

Just a photo of a happy Tammy in the sunshine.

2nd May 2021

Wonderful to have my team of dog handlers back today working with our rescues. Thanks everyone.

25th April 2021

Many years ago our lovely dog club member Val Rossi passed away very suddenly. A letter was found from Val asking that Tess was taken to Jill if anything happened to her. Well Val, I looked after your girl for you, I did my very best. She has had a great life here. She has grown into a very old very loved old lady here. It broke my heart this afternoon to send her up there to join you. God bless you both, reunited at last. Rest in peace together lovely ladies.

18th April 2021

Just friends having a cuddle. Lovely Tessie.

11th April 2021

We also have a hen and a duck to look after. Clucky and Ducky.

4th April 2021

Wilfie having a wander in the sunshine this morning. Thank you Pat Sumner for being his sponsor for June.

28th March 2021

More kind hands no force evidence. At Happy days we work at our rescues pace, no one else's. I had a feeling Nora/Joanie was waiting for better weather so she could spend time in her run.

21st March 2021

Babs had visitors today. She has been for a little walk with Matt and Emma before. She is slowly getting used to being with other people that aren't me.

14th March 2021

Wilfie says massive Thank you to the Kane family, Lynne Thomas and Pat Edge, he has sponsors for March, April and May.

7th March 2021

Our beautiful Ashblonde already has her first sponsor, Thank you Ann Keene. That's March covered for Ash.

28th February 2021

Our Tammy is starting to show her age. She loves treats but could do with some plainer ones. If anyone would like to send her some Biscrocks or Markies she would love some. She said she will share them with her friend Ashblonde.

21st February 2021

Harry is getting used to his lovely coat now, keeps our old guy nice and toasty.

14th February 2021

Thank you Fox and Hounds and the very beautiful Kaiser for the Valentine treats for the dogs.

7th February 2021

Ashblonde is starting to show an interest in toys. Good job we have plenty in the toy store. Thank you to everyone that is supporting our special dogs we have here that I am working with

31st January 2021

This pair are doing so well. Clipped a short lead to Lori today so he gets used to it. Working hard, miss my Sat team of rescue handlers, I am sure they are desperate to get back and join in the rehab again.

24th January 2021

Just a nice calm eyed Lorenzo. Lori says Thank you for all the Ranchos people have sent.

17th January 2021

Oh hello, what did I walk in on this morning !!!

10th January 2021

Lovely to have news of Pia who was rehomed 4 years ago. Such a wonderful little girl, so pleased to see her happy and settled in a good home.

3rd January 2021

Harry just loves the snow.

27th December 2020

Ashblonde is changing every day. I sat in her run chatting while Phil sorted out her heatlamp. She is interacting with her toys and snuffle mat. A bit of a change from the girl that arrived 12 months ago.

20th December 2020

Happy Christmas everyone, thankyou for your support in a very challenging year. Have fun and keep safe. Love from all at Happy days animal rescue.

13th December 2020

Doesn't Miss Dottie look lovely. She is a lucky girl to have such a wonderful home.

6th December 2020

Our gorgeous Alice (now Bonnie) in her Christmas hat has sent a gift for all her pals at Happy Days - Thank you gorgeous girl and have a lovely Christmas with your wonderful family.

29th November 2020

Nita is looking forward to Xmas, she gets so excited to have a parcel and opens them all by herself. She will miss her pal JD who she shared with until she died in August. She has been a bit sad without her.

15th November 2020

Getting results now with Ashblonde. She is letting me touch her face. A long way to go but this is great progress.

8th November 2020

Wilf has arrived safely, he is gorgeous. Tucked up warm in his bed after a bit of tea and a drink.

1st November 2020

Introducing Wilf, he has been waiting a long time to get noticed. He is old, he is black, he is in Romania. What chance has he got. Well fella, you just won the lottery, you is coming home to Happy Days.

25th October 2020

When you become a Co-op Member, you can choose a local cause to support through your membership. As you spend on Co-op products and services, you’ll also be contributing to Happy Days Animal Rescue.

Co op Community

18th October 2020

Time for Babs to get used to more people. So today she took Phil for his walk.

11th October 2020

Hey everyone Sandra is coming, she is coming, oh she is here. Big thanks to Sandra for collecting Lori's pills and bringing them up to the rescue. I think they were a bit pleased to see you.

27th September 2020

Lucas has been coming to dog club over the last couple of weeks while we assessed him. To meet him is to love him. Angela fell in love and will be taking him home with her on Wednesday. Providing he gets on ok with her girls, he will be moving in forever. What a lucky lad.

20th September 2020

Surprise surprise, Alex is back in the failed foster club. Alys will be staying. After seeing how happy she was last night I couldn't be happier. Have a great life little Alys - job done.

6th September 2020

Poor Alice wasn't very happy in kennels so she has gone into foster with a member of our dog club. Lucky girl will have 2 other dogs to play with. She went off very happily with Alex. We will continue to assess her over the next few weeks giving her chance to get over the huge change in her life.

30th August 2020

Huge 'Thank You' to Matt and Emma and their wonderful customers (especially Brian!) at the Fox and Hounds Pub in Pwllglas for collecting another £47.61p in the collection tin.

23rd August 2020

One of our dogs has come back to us after 6 years. Little Alice will stay with Jill for a while now so she can be assessed. She was very happy to have cuddles with her Aunties, she hadn't forgotten us. We will update the page when she is ready to look for a new home and what sort of home would be best for her.

16th August 2020

Lukas met Chairman Dave tonight. They liked each other as you can see

9th August 2020

Lukas (Mr Shaggy) is home. Thank you to everyone that sent donations, our emails haven't been working so only just got the notifications. Bless you all, this little lad really needed help

2nd August 2020

Sneaked a photo of Ashblonde this morning with my phone. You can see how her eyes have softened.

26th July 2020

At last Mr Shaggy aka Lukas is booked on the Happy Bus to freedom. He has had a haircut. He will be here mid August. I did not think it right to be transporting dogs during the lockdown so he had to wait. If you would like to send a donation for him that would be great as we haven't been able to do any fundraising during lockdown. But, don't worry, he is coming anyway

19th July 2020

Lori had to have his nails cut. Quite a challenge. Thanks to our great vets understanding of some of our rescues we were able to give him a sedative so Phil and I could do them at home to save the stress of taking him into the surgery. A good vet is essential when working with dogs like Lori. Thanks for all your help Lizzie from Rhyd Broughton

12th July 2020

Lovely to have Sandra Silcock visit today to help with the dogs. I think she has seen a big change in our Babs. She got to take her for a walk and give her treats. Her reward, Babs gave her her paw.

5th July 2020

Wow, these old photos I am sorting really bring back the memories. So many people think we only rescue dogs, we don't. With the help of our wonderful foster Mum Lyn Jones we have rescued rather a lot !! and I bet there are more.

28th June 2020

I think Harry is quiet enjoying the peace. All our resident dogs come out for a run on the yard at least twice a day. With no visitors it means they are out much longer. Harry is running and picking up toys, he just loves being silly with his friends.

21st June 2020

Nora/Joanie came out to say hello to Matt and Emma. She even got to sit on Emma's lap. Long way to go with this girl, but she is out and about for half an hour every day. I hope she will soon realise she is safe here with us.

14th June 2020

Matt - Hi Tammy, I have come to visit and bring treats.
Tammy - yes that's all very well Matt, but where have you been, I haven't seen you for weeks.

7th June 2020

Now I feel AshBlonde is less frightened of me I am moving on with her rehab. I have been stroking her gently, just once, down her back before I put her food bowl down. I will still be doing the same, but now I will move on to the big guns - Turkey off cuts. They vanished rather quickly when I turned my back to leave the kennel today ! It is expensive, but worth it to get her to see me not as a threat but as her friend. I hope one day she will trust me. Her eyes are more gentle. Its hard to get a photos cos soon as I get a camera out she looks like the most unhappy dog in the world. She isn't, she is just like Bella and hates cameras. Soon hand feeding will begin. I love this girl, she had been in the kennel in the shelter for 5 years. Rome wasn't built in a day, and I have plenty of patience to work with a girl like this.

31st May 2020

Our other little Black girl Nora/Joanie is getting better. She is shy with people so we must socialise her with lost of people before we look for a home for her. She sits on my lap for a cuddle each day. She is such a sweetie, we all love her. As soon as members of our rescue committee can come back to the kennels we will all be working with her and Babs.

24th May 2020

Today was the day for Babs. I have been working with her since October when she arrived. I worried that the 6 weeks when I couldn't see her due to my eye op would have set her back. She has been moving on fast the last few days and weeks. Today was our big day, our big breakthrough. She put her paws on the concrete by herself with no treat, no me luring her, just her idea, and off we went.

17th May 2020

It is with a very heavy heart that I must tell you all that Miss Pink Pyjamas / Skye got her angel wings yesterday. She was taken into our vets to be pts by her owner 2 years ago already a very old lady, our vet rang me, sent a photo and got permission to let us take her. She was so matted we had to shave her. I am sure you all remember her Pink PJs. She was very lucky to be homed with 3 of our other rescues with Kerry and Saffi, members of our dog club. We could not have wished for a better home for her. She has had the best 2 years of her life. We are all shedding tears and sending our very grateful thanks to Kerry and her family for the wonderful care she gave our girl. God Bless our little girl.

10th May 2020

Little Joanie / Nora is getting better. She is so shy bless her. Now Babs is improving it gives me time to start working with Joanie. She gets click treat every time she looks at me. Yesterday she took her food from my hand. She is a real sweetie, right up my street, her little face is so lovely.She has got a soft bed but always pushes it out of the bed in the day time ? I put it back at night and she sleeps on it then.

3rd May 2020

Massive thank you to Harringtons Pet foods. They have donated dried and wet, dog and cat food to smaller rescues who don't usually get a look in. We were very lucky that they choose us. This will really help us out just now as we cannot do our usual big fund raiser which we were due to do in March. Money we would have spent on feeding the dogs and cats can be kept in reserve in case we have vet bills to pay.
This of course is on top of all the donations of food we have received from our supporters. Jill heaves a big sigh of relief

26th April 2020

Dottie is settling in really well in her new home with her new family. Just love it when a plan comes together. Well done Susan and family for taking another 2 of our dogs.

19th April 2020

As we are home all day every day it means more time to spend with the rescues. Babs is changing every day, getting less nervous and more accepting of her lead. She is a bit of a fool of a dog it seems.

12th April 2020

For the Harry fans. His girls are keeping him happy while he cant go to dog club. I think he will be very pleased to see everyone when we can get our lives back.

5th April 2020

Very sad news this morning. Miss Molly O'Malley one of our little rehomed rescue cats that went missing before Xmas has been found dead. The lady that found her took her to Rhyd Broughton Vets to be scanned so at least her owner would know what had happened to her, she had only recently died. She must have got lost and couldn't find her way home. If you are that person, please can you just let us know where she was found, her owner would like to know and also thank you for taking her to be scanned.

29th March 2020

From the Vets at Rhyd Broughton.

22nd March 2020

I had to make a decision about Callie. She was due to leave us today for her new home. I didn't think it fair to keep her until all this was over, poor girl could be months. So we kept well away from each other while going through all the usual advice about looking after her. One less for Phil to look after too while I am on light duties. We will miss you Callie, you are such a little sweetie and made us laugh. Good luck baby, your new life begins today. Job Done x

15th March 2020

We are all so sad we wont be able to see each other for a while. I thought I would put up some of our old photos showing happier times for us all to enjoy. How lucky, rescue cat had 4 kittens, one each to cuddle. Keep safe everyone, we are in it together, Happy Days is a big family and we will support each other through this like we have every other crisis we have faced.

8th March 2020

Our boy has been moved to a clinic, had a hair cut and is being made ready to travel. This will take some time, but at least we know he is safe and being cared for. By the time I am back in the kennels I hope we will have a date for his arrival and I will be getting his bed ready.

1st March 2020

Rescue is all about time and patience with your new pal.

23rd February 2020

Pauline says Thank you to everyone that leaves donations for us at our Vets in Rhyd Broughton. Really kind of you all, the dogs and cats are most grateful.

16th February 2020

Lovely message from Moosie, now Lola.
I have been living with my humans Daniel and Sylvia for nearly 3 years now, but I have never forgotten Happy Days and am very grateful to you for bringing me here.( Even if my humans don't let me eat nearly as much stuff I find on the street as I want to !!). She has also sent pressies for any little dogs we have here. Sorry I think I forgot to post a thank you Moosie, you know how busy I am and sometimes get a bit behind !!
Sounds like you are having a grand life, a bit different from the one you were rescued from on the mean streets of Romania

9th February 2020

Babs is getting braver every day. She likes going out now, she is on a lunge line and will go further away from me and still feel safe. I work with this girl every day, she is so worth my time, the smallest change is so special and keeps me going.

2nd February 2020

Tammy says thank you from all our dogs and cats to the generous people that leave donations for them at our Vets, Rhyd Broughton. Massive thanks again to Rhyd Broughton for supporting our rescue we really do appreciate it.

26th January 2020

Little Nora, or Peeky as I call her as she likes to peek around the door looking at me, is improving. Now Tiny Peg has been homed I can work on her without a Peg on my head. She is such a sweet girl, but very shy. Once she looses her nerves she will be a very loving little one. More work to do yet, but watch this space for updates.

19th January 2020

Poor Miss Dixie, twice people have said no, not for them, she is the sweetest girl you could ever hope to meet. She is so like Little Guy its amazing. Her fosterer has decided to keep her with her. Lucky, lucky Miss Dixie, what a fantastic new Mum and Dad you have landed yourself. We have a home offered for her puppy so it looks like both are about to start their new lives.

12th January 2020

Now Xmas and New Year are over we get down to the serious job of finding homes for the dogs in rescue. We had already had enquiries for the dogs that are ready to go so are arranging home checks and visits for them. Tiny Peggy left us yesterday for her new life. She has a new brother to play with. They got on great yesterday. Going to miss you little one, you made us all laugh with your antics. Lucky you, your new life begins Good luck baby - Job Done xx

29th December 2019

Look who came to drop of some pressies for everyone - Rosie. Her fur is like silk, she is so happy. The £20 we paid last year just a few days before Xmas to get her out of the kill shelter was the best £20 we have ever spent. God love you Rosie, what a lovely girl you are, and you have made your Mum smile again xx

22nd December 2019

We went to visit Miss Dixie and Dotty yesterday at their foster home. Dotty is a bit shy but Miss Dixie was all over us. We still haven't decided if we are going to split them or not. Dotty is very dependent on Mum so we are going to wait until after Xmas to decide.

15th December 2019

Massive thank you to everyone that has sent Xmas pressies for the dogs and cats we have resident or waiting for a home. I have photographed just a few. On Wed night after class a few of us will stay behind and make up the Xmas bags for them. I cant believe how generous you are. The dogs and cats will have a great day xx

8th December 2019

At long last Miss Dixie and her baby Miss Dolly have arrived in foster! Long sleep and a bit of peace for them over the weekend before they are introduced to our three.

1st December 2019

Big day for Miss Dixie and her pup tomorrow. They will be on board the happy bus heading to the U K. Hopefully they will arrive on Saturday where massive cuddles await. She should have come months ago but then she surprised everyone by giving birth to 6 pups. Now its your turn baby, you are coming home xx

24th November 2019

See you soon everyone, I will be jumping on that happy bus on Thursday, you see if I don't, Love, Tiny Peg xx

17th November 2019

Please keep a look out for this cat. She is one of our rescues that was re-homed a couple of years ago.

Molly is missing. Last seen 6pm Thursday 7th Nov. Curious tortie. Small. 2yrs old. Chipped. Red Collar with bow.
Hand Pub Area, Holt Rd. Wrexham.

10th November 2019

Just love it when we get news of dogs and cats we have re-homed. Here is Jade happy in her home. Bit of a change from where we rescued her from. Lucky Jade to have such a wonderful home. Thanks Dave for the update xx

Our next 3 little ones are booked onto the Happy Bus on the 21st November. Oh dear, that's only 3 weeks, not long but we will be very excited to meet them when they arrive. x

20th October 2019

Faith is an old lady now, maybe 14 or 15, her back legs are starting to let her down. When she came 4 ish years ago we thought she would be with us for just a couple of years. She is on medication which has helped her such a lot. Phil has given her Eddies coat and she loves it. She is like a dog walk model strutting her stuff on the yard to the envy of the others x

13th October 2019

Can't thank Sonia Goulding and her friends enough for putting on a fund raising cafe for Happy Days Animal Rescue and The Candy and Tibby Trust this afternoon. She works so hard baking all the wonderful cakes, and we just come along and drink tea and eat cake, and chat. Another great afternoon raising funds for rescue xx

6th October 2019

After a rather eventful day, the girls are safely tucked up in their beds.
Babs and Ashley have arrived safe.

29th September 2019

Please come and support us. We don't ask for much, just eat cake, drink tea and have a good natter. Would love to see lots of our supporters there xx

22nd September 2019

Look at Saffi having afternoon tea, what a great little girl. Miss you in training classes Saffi and Dad

15th September 2019

What a lovely day for me. Milly came to see me. She travelled over with Lori to be his friend and help him to become a happier boy. Once we saw how long it was going to take him to recover we decided it was not fair on Milly to have to stay in kennels with him. We looked for a very special home for her and found one that was just perfect. Her little tail never stops wagging.

8th September 2019

Fingers crossed everyone we can get this poor girl out of Barland Kill Shelter very soon. We have a rescuer trying to get her and will keep her in her own house until we can get her ready to travel. I have called her Babs (Black and Beautiful). A lady has been feeding her on the streets for 4 years, she has begged a rescue to help her, she has never been any trouble. Now she is in the hands of the scum they call the dog catchers, we have to try and save her and get her to Happy Days so she can find a new life free from danger.

1st September 2019

Philip is feeling so much better now those nasty old worms are gone. He loves to come out and play with Tammy. He enjoyed all the brushing yesterday from Sian. Tammy is like a new dog, now she is up to the weight she should be. What a lovely pair, so glad we were able to get them to Happy Days, big thanks to everyone that had a hand in that.

25th August 2019

Tammy was one of the saddest cases, so badly starved when found. Friends pulled together, sharing the love, saving a life. You can throw all the money you want at some things, but you wont ever get the feeling we do.

18th August 2019

What a great day Fido had yesterday. His first big day out with the family to Southport. He absolutely loved it and was the perfect boy.

11th August 2019

A very kind friend of Happy Days sent us a large donation just a couple of weeks ago and hoped it would be enough to save a dog, it is.
So introducing Ash, she will be arriving late September to join us at Happy Days, she is 10 years old and has been waiting in a cage for 5 years to be rescued. Well baby, you are coming home at last.

4th August 2019

Beautiful Jo got her Angel Wings last night. When you look up you will see her, she will be a shining star. She was a wonderful girl, a rescue of course. My best pal, the sweetest nature, loved everyone and every dog she met.

28th July 2019

The lady that asked me to find a dog for her, and I found Miss Dixie, says she should be allowed to keep one of her pups, she hasn't had much of a life so far so she feels she should keep one, so has offered a home to Miss Dixie and her baby. What a lovely lady.

21st July 2019

Had a lovely phone call today to let us know that Sassi has settled into her new home really well. She has been there 2 weeks so today was allowed out for the first time. She was very good and walked beautifully on the lead. Thanks to dog club members that taught her lead walking skills. They are very pleased with her, and guess what, just as I said would happen, she hasn't been barking, she was just excited at being out of kennels. I cant tell you how much it means to us to have updates on the dogs and cats we re home.

14th July 2019

We are all a Grandma !! Miss Dixie has had 6 puppies, not bad for a dog that was officially neutered in Romania and had a tag in her ear to prove someone was paid for doing it !!!

7th July 2019

Our Little Miss Dixie was keeping something hidden !! The rescue she is with in Romania thought she was looking better and putting weight on now she is being looked after and having good food. Now we see why !! Our little girl is soon to become a Mother. So we can't move her until she has had her pups. This is the life of rescue, never a dull moment.

30th June 2019

Philip is doing very well. He is being treated by Lizzie at Rhyd Broughton and is improving every day. From a dog that didn't bother to come out of his kennel in Romania to our lovely lad who loves to see us. He is on restricted exercise at the moment and took me by surprise this morning by coming out of his kennel at a run. Lead on tomorrow my lad, you are obviously feeling much better.

23rd June 2019

Our beautiful Sassi left for her new home today. She has a lovely new Mum and Dad who will keep her safe for the rest of her days. They have already rung to say she is ok loves her new bed and was quiet all the way home.

16th June 2019

Look who was in kennels last week, our Luna. I hope her new family enjoyed their holiday as much as I enjoyed looking after this little one for a while.

9th June 2019

Look at our little Saffi settled in and even learning to play with toys.

2nd June 2019

Another happy, sad day at Happy Days today as our Saffi left for her new home. She already has her new Dad wrapped around her paw. She is such a special fun loving little girl, it was great to see her off to start the new life she so deserves.

26th May 2019

Poppy is going to her new home, Thanks to all involved with this rescue. Well done and good luck Poppy.

12th May 2019

Our beautiful little Taz left for her new home today. She has waited a long time for the right home and she is a very lucky girl to have found a lady that is just perfect for her. She also has a new brother. What a lucky girl she is, have a great life Taz, I am sure going to miss you lovely girl. Job Done xx

21st April 2019

Our new resident rescue dog arrived last week. Jill was a bit excited to welcome her to Happy Days. She has been very badly treated and is extremely thin. We will be feeding her 6 times a day, small meals until she is up to the weight she should be. She can now look forward to a life full of love and cuddles from the Happy Days Gang.

31st March 2019

Our beautiful Sara left for her new home on Saturday. I don't think Jill wanted her to go. Always happens ! But this was one very special girl who had crept right into Jill's heart. She has had a wonderful home and we will see her every week in class. Got to put the dog first, but sometimes its hard.

24th March 2019

At last our 2 lovely cats have gone off to their new home. The have escaped a terrible life in Romania and can now look forward to a life without fear.

17th March 2019

Our beautiful Jade has found a new home near the beach. How lucky is she. The home check has been passed so she will soon be leaving us to start her new life. Lucky girl x

10th March 2019

Our little Rosie went off to her new home on Saturday. We have all fallen in love with this little one. Just £20 before Xmas that we sent to a rescue in Romania saved her life. Best £20 the rescue has ever spent I think. Be happy Rosie, see you soon in Dog Club.

17th February 2019

Our lovely new dogs have been coming into dog club so we can assess what sort of home they will need. Jade (pale golden girl) is a little bit shy so will need a quiet home. She soon comes out of herself and starts to play. She just loves to cuddle up to you too.

10th February 2019

Our lovely new girl has certainly scored a hit with one of our Dog Club members, Simon. She loves to have a cuddle. She is a bit shy but is getting better all the time. She will soon be looking for a new home where she will be safe for the rest of her life.

20th January 2019

Lovely Gwen and shy Pauline are now all part of the family. It has taken some time working with Pauline to trust Phil, but as you can see, she loves to jump up at him now for some attention.

13th January 2019

Jumping on the Happy Bus in two weeks time is Jade. Jill saw this photo of her in the dreaded Botosani Kill Station in Romania. She got in touch and offered to bring her to Happy Days. She is now having all her health checks ready to travel. I think all the girls will be fighting for a cuddle with this lovely girl.

This is little Rosie, she has been saved by our friend Sophia from a killing station in Romania. She will be arriving at Happy Days at the end of January. She will be left alone for a few days to get over the journey, then Jill will be assessing her to see what kind of home would suit her best.

6th January 2019

Our lovely Betty who we thought would live at Happy Days forever due to her past and her being so frightened, blossomed after arriving and working with Jill for a few weeks. She is such a wonderful girl Jill said it would be a shame not to find her a home. We were very lucky that one of our dog club members fell in love with her when she first arrived. Just after New Year off she went to live with Angela, a perfect match, good luck lovely girl.

These 2 lucky little cats have been saved from the mean streets of Romania. They will be arriving at Happy Days at the end of January. Cant wait to meet them.

30th December 2018

Winnie and Bella have moved to their new home. As they were so bonded to each other we had to find a home that would take both. Les and Phil are perfect for them, they will have such a good life, go on lovely walks and they will be going on holiday together too.

16th December 2018

Little Mindy (Julie) looking forward to her first Xmas in the UK. She was found alone by a busy road in Romania. Our friend scooped her up and into her car. She looked after her until we could bring her to the UK. She is a very lucky girl and very happy in her new home.

9th December 2018

Lucky Julie has found her new home, she has gone to live with one of our rescue committee members, Sandra. She will be coming to dog club every week so that is lovely for all of us as we will see her progress.

2nd December 2018

Our lovely Betty arrived safe at Happy Days, she is being assessed and will be looking for a home in the New Year. She is a real sweetie, so sad she spent 2 years on a chain in Romania before we became away of her plight and made plans to get her to us so we could help her.

18th November 2018

I was asked by a friend to find a new little middle aged dog for her little girl. Her little dog had died a few weeks before. I found Friday who was with a friend of ours in Rescue in Romania. Message to Carmen, dog booked on transport with Dana, assessed when he arrived to make sure he was suitable. Intro to resident dog went very well, home check done, Friday off to new home. That's how is should be, a bit of patience and the right dog in the right home. Lucky Friday, now Jangles x

4th November 2018

Betty will soon be arriving at Happy Days. This poor girl has been waiting 3 years for someone to notice her and offer to help her. She did have a home, but as she wasn’t any good at guarding they put her out on the street and shut the gates. She waited outside for a long time and then wandered off. This is when she was hit by a car. Her owners just left her lying there with 2 broken front legs. She was lucky someone saw her and she was taken to a vet for treatment but has been stuck in a little kennel and run ever since. We hope she will be rehomeable, but if not, she will be a friend for Lorenzo and will stay here with him to help him cope with life.

21st October 2018

Our lovely Happy Days friend Sonia Goulding put on a community café for us in Cilcain on Saturday. We had to turn up and eat cake, (our kind of fundraiser). Massive thanks to Sonia and to everyone that turned up to support us. We came away with £400. It is people being so kind that means our rescue can continue and Jill can carry on her work helping poor sad dogs like Lorenzo. We have sent a message to our rescue friends in Romania to tell Betty to get her bags packed, she is coming home to Happy Days xx

14th October 2018

Our lucky little lad Friday has now moved on to his new home. He has another dog to play with and Sophia to love. Isn't that just a great photo, from the mean streets of Romania to cuddling up with your new best friend to look after you. Job done. xx

7th October 2018

Well we did it, our annual sponsored walk. This year we walked around the Rhug Estate near Corwen. We had a great day, walking, eating lunch and of course chatting away. I love it when the 3 training groups come together to try and collect enough funds to help us through another year of rescue. We have over £1000 and hope to push it to £1500 once we have all the sponsor money in. Thank you everyone that took part or sponsored us, we have a great team here at Happy Days x

This years walk was called Harry's Hike for Happy Days, so of course Harry came too x

23rd September 2018

Our new dogs arrived this week. They were tired from the long journey but soon livened up once they had had a good nights sleep. They came into dog club this morning to meet some our club members that help us run our rescue. We will be doing our Sponsored Walk next Sunday at the Rhug Estate near Corwen, we hope to raise lots of money so we can rescue more animals.

16th September 2018

This little fella is called Friday as he was found by Carmen our rescue friend on a Friday. He is on his way to Happy Days and will arrive on Monday. Can't wait to meet him and give him a big love. I am sure he will soon be heading off for his new home. What's not to love about him. He already has someone interested, so after a few days to rest he will meet the dog who hopefully will be his new sister. If they don't hit it off, then he will be looking for a new home in a couple of weeks after assessment.

9th September 2018

Our lovely Nita can be a bit naughty. She was such a sad case when she arrived at Happy Days. Her name in Romania was 'Suffering' Bless her. After Jill spent many months working with her to show her we are really quite nice and the other dogs just want to play, she is a changed girl Jill even took her to Bangor University last year when she was giving a talk about her work doing rehab with very stressed dogs. She likes nothing better now than to get into the wood shed and dig holes, as she only has 3 legs she does it with her nose. This is the face Jill gets when she askes her if anyone has been digging holes. Me Mum, no, I have no knowledge of anyone digging holes at all !!

2nd September 2018

Alice left this week for her new home. She is a very lucky girl, she will have a sister to live with and a lot of family dogs to play with. We will miss Alice, she wasn't very well when she arrived and so has been here a bit longer than normal and we have all spoiled her. She didn't want to leave Paul who was one of her favourite people to cuddle with. Good Luck Alice, see you soon in training class.

26th August 2018

Our lovely old lady Skye, also known as Miss Pink Pyjamas is well and truly settled in her new home. After a phone call from our vet to say she had been taken in to be pts by her owners, but they would hand her over to rescue, Jill jumped in the car to go and collect her. At age 14 we didnt think she would get a home, but we were happy for her to live out her life at Happy Days. She was very matted so we had to shave all her fur off. As you can see, she is fully recovered, fur grown, beautiful and silky and she has a home to call her own. We miss her at Happy Days, but were very happy to see her leave for her retirement home. Job well and truly done x

19th August 2018

Big thanks to Matt and Emma for hosting our Rescue Committee meeting last week at their pub, The Fox and Hounds in Pwllglas near Ruthin. A warm welcome and great food as usual.

We had lots to discuss. Fund raising always top of the agenda.

This years main fund raiser will be a Sponsored Walk - Harry's Hike for Happy Days. Those of you that have followed the Harry Story from the start will know what a major thing it is for him to be able to come out for a walk with us. He is ok as long as he has his club friends and handlers with him. There will be more details soon for people that would like to sponsor Harry.

We hope our supporters will help us to keep doing the work we all love, saving animals who need us and putting a smile back on their little faces.

12th August 2018

Lucky Harry had a visitor this week. Anna used to come and sit with him and give him cuddles when he was first coming into Dog Club. She has been off to University for 3 years but he certainly had not forgotten her. He was soon cuddling up just like he used to. Harry is very lucky to have such a large fan club.

5th August 2018

Winnie and Bella have booked their seats on the Happy Bus and will be arriving with us in September. They are Mother and Daughter and need to be homed together. Just two small dogs who have had a rough time in Romania and ended up in a kill shelter ( I know those two words don't go together do they !) They were rescued by Sofia Radu and are being looked after at her Shelter. We cant wait for them to arrive so we can shower them with love and find them a good home for the rest of their lives.

29th July 2018

Alice came into dog club today to learn some basic commands for when she finds her new home. She had a great time getting to know everyone. She loves other dogs. We think she would be better homed with another dog to play with. She is about 1 - 2 years old, an all round lovely girl. She soon had Matt giving her cuddles and treats.

22nd July 2018

We carried our very frightened little lad Lorenzo into the training school yesterday to see if he would socialise or at least take some interest in another dog and people. We could not have been happier. He cuddled in to Jill's dog Jo and had a good look at everyone. He didn't walk around but it is early days, he has come on so much in the short time he has been here. 4 people sat with him and talked to him, he even had a bit of a brush. Small steps, but steps in the right direction of his rehabilitation.

15th July 2018

Alice is doing well, she is coming to Dog Club to learn a few basic commands. She loves the other dogs and is very friendly with people. We are trying to train her to sit in front of us instead of jumping all over us ! She so loves attention. Her fur is growing really fast now. She is going to be a very pretty girl. Alice would be great homed with a couple of kids to play with her, she is only young and loves to play all day.

8th July 2018

Lina, now Luna left for her new home today. Everyone looks very happy with the new member of their family

7th July 2018

Dog club stopped this morning, why, well, look who came to visit. Miss Pink Pyjamas herself. Everyone had to come out and say hello to our lovely old lady who we rescued from pts earlier this year. Her fur is growing again after we had to shave it off due to her being so matted. She looks so happy, putting on weight and living the dream. Sometimes, well, a lot of the time, rescue is heart breaking and very frustrating. But, a visit from one of our 'desperate' cases and it gives us the boost we need to carry on.
Great day for Mr Fido today. After over 12 months at Happy Days he has left today to be with his new family. He will have another dog to play with which is great. Good luck Mr Fido, this day has been a long time coming for you xx
