About Us

New Hope is dedicated to helping animals on death row & animals with medical needs. We aim to help as many animals as we can, given their circumstances and in particular, animals that have been turned away elsewhere.


We often take in animals in immediate danger to save them from death & then place them into other rescues once a space is available.


We occasionally rehome those that we consider rehomeable, but concentrate on being the middle man between immediate danger and rescue spaces. We care for animals in our own homes, foster homes or private boarding kennels, where we often have to keep many of the death row dogs.


New Hope is limited by space, fosterer’s availability & financial help. We rely on donations to help keep saving lives.


Our vet bills are very large, as we endeavour to help any animal that needs help whatever the costs might amount to, and have seen vet bills during the course of a year running into thousands of pounds.


We work alongside many people including fellow rescuers who offer placements on desperate animals, donations of money, animal food, bedding, animal housing, fostering, adopting, transporting or cross posting etc.


Animals that are considered not to be suitable to be rehomed, or animals that have not been able to find a home, whether because of medical conditions or behavioural issues remain under the care of New Hope or are placed in other non-destruct organisations.


Animals with special requirements are not destroyed as these are the very animals New Hope strives to help. They live with Niall (New Hope's founder) & other members of New Hope permanently, many are found sanctuary homes for a lifetime of happiness & understanding of the particular animal’s needs.


New Hope concentrates on death row animals from pounds, vets & those who have been injured including wildlife. We rarely take animals in from the public unless the circumstances are extreme. Please bear this in mind if contacting New Hope. We will strive to help place healthy unwanted animals into other rescues if the situation is urgent.
