Our Love Stories page depicts some of our rescued animals in their new lives, as told by their new guardian. Rocky’s rescues hundreds of pets each year, and you can see them all in our rehomed section.  

  • Saffie

    Saffie ‘pawditioned’ at the Capitol Theatre along with many other dogs. The criteria was they had to be trained, non pedigree and get on with other dogs and children. This was made for Saffie as she lives to play in the park with every dog she sees. Read more

    • Mikey

      Mikey, happily rescued by MarieWhen Marie went to see Mikey for the first time, Merna warned her that he would be shy at first. Not so, he saw Marie and became hers instantly. Marie burst into tears and a bond was formed. They have been living and walking together very happily, every day since.

    • Holly

      Holly is already like part of the furniture and has settled in well to our family and loves playing with her new playmate Sonny. Sonny is an avid swimmer in our pool, Holly was very reluctant to join him for a swim until last Sunday when she finally took the plunge. I’ve attached a photo for you 🙂 see original email here.

    • Benson

      Having had pedigree animals for the last 20+ years we are overwhelmed at the joy of giving this wonderful and lovable dog a second chance at life.
