Finding Forever Homes -  Finding Furever Homes (FFH) is a registered charity set up in 2013 by Andrea Newton with 3 main aims: 1. Find loving furever homes for rescue dogs in need 2. Organise fundraising to support rescue costs 3. Raise awareness of the growing problem of unwanted dogs in the UK FFH works with smaller dog rescues located throughout the UK. Many of these small rescue centres receive very little support or funding, whether that is hands on volunteering, dog walking, home checks, transportation or – most importantly – helping them to re-home dogs in need. FFH fundraises so we can support these rescue centres to cover the cost of veterinary bills and medication if needed. Through campaigning in the press and online using social media we help to find these dogs furever homes with loving owners.
