Welcome to the SSDR Boarding & Rescue Centre Kennel Campaign! By 2022 we would like to have raised enough funds to kick start the BIG DREAM and start the build of our very own kennels facility.

We strive to be the very FIRST sled dog specific facility in UK which offers breed specific rescue kennels, overnight boarding, daycare, grooming, hydrotherapy, pet supplies, Dog cafe, secure off lead facilites AND educational centre.  All-under-one-roof! 

But, before we get there we need YOUR help.


To make our dream into a reality we need to raise  £200,000 and we believe with your help, we can smash it!!

Buy a brick & Pave the way to success...

As of January 2021, you are be able to buy a brick that will help contribute to SSDR's kennel fundraising target and create a long standing legacy for sled dogs in the UK. By contributing to our appeal, you will be able to physically see your message or memory in stone on the finished build on kennel walkway or on a tile on our reception wall for visitors to see.

The aim of our campaign is to be able to generate enough funds to start the SSDR Boarding and Rescue Kennels - saving even MORE sled dogs in the UK that are desperately looking for new homes. Unfortunately the remarkable, working breeds of Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes have become increasingly popular in the UK for their striking and desirable looks.

Since 2013 we have rescued over 850 dogs and still counting, the demand for rescue centres taking in the breed grows yearly due to popular TV shows and Hollywood films. This in turn has increased the need for more rescues to be established, like us, who specialise in rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming these amazing breeds. 

Our campaign allows individuals, companies, schools and communities to join together to help set up a future for the sled dogs in the UK and  build a community to educate future generations about the care of animals. Our different giving levels will give EVERYONE the opportunity to be apart of our journey. Whatever you can give, donations big or small, will make all the difference to sled dogs in our care - past, present and future.

Owning a piece of OUR future!

With careful consideration we chose a beautiful and unique design of paving stones working closely with the amazing Fundraising Engraving UK to complement your message left out our rescue centre. You have 6 options to suit your donation amount starting at £20 to leave your memory, name or unique message. It makes the perfect everlasting gift to honour someone special or even a particular occasion. The SSDR walkway and tiled wall will be open to the public to visit at any time.



We also invite business owners who would like to invest in a part of the SSDR Boarding & Rescue Centre to take a look at our corporate paving bricks and large tiles. Your company will be able to be advertised for the public to see along side our uniquely eye catching character stones and tiles, sitting beside a Saints Sled Dog Rescue Mascot of your choice. A great way to advertise your business at a fraction of the cost, supporting an amazing cause.


If you would like to know more about our corporate paving stones and tiles please contact us via email  



The SSDR kennels will be a state of the art facility dedicated to the welfare and happiness of dogs. Take a look at the Saints Sled Dog Rescue Boarding & Rescue Centre vision to see exactly what we have in store for the future!
