About Us


East Anglia Dog rescue is a non-destruct foster-based dog rescue that covers the East Anglia region.

At East Anglia Dog rescue, we take in stray dogs from council pounds and offer a safe rehoming scheme for people who are no longer able to keep their dog(s).

All our dogs are given lifetime RBU (rescue back up).

Our dogs are neutered, chipped, vaccinated or titre tested prior to rehoming.
For any dog that is adopted out under us, if circumstances change, the dog must be

returned back to us.

Holly Maitland founded and ran One Dog At a Time-East Anglia rescue for many 

years, whilst having worked in rescue previously for qhat seems like a lifetime.
Leanne McWade got involved with One Dog At a Time-East Anglia rescue through

adopting her dog, from which she became very involved in the running of the rescue


As a result, they founded East Anglia Dog rescue.
One Dog At a Time-East Anglia will always be leaving its focus on the stray dogs

who are in need of rescue spaces and funding, whilst East Anglia Dog rescue will be

solely for the dogs under our care and rescue

Rescue Back-Up (RBU)

Rescue backup for life - means exactly that!

The same way your children are always your children even after they have moved out of home, our dogs are always under our care no matter what.

Even if our dogs have been adopted for years we still have their files & their information and will take the dog back into our care and re-home them if their current home can no longer keep them.

We are always available on the phone and online to speak to you about any issues you may be having or any concerns and will always do our best to help you as much as possible.

This is not just for adoption but for fosters as well, we want you to enjoy your experience of loving and homing a dog, whether it is long or short term.

Our Services

People who are faced with the sad task of rehoming their dog are offered the facility to try and find their dog a new home.

People can register their dog's details with East Anglia Dog Rescue where they then try to find a suitable new home for your pet.

Offering lifetime rescue back up means the dog is safe for life.

The rescue does not pay out owner's vets bills but will help where they can if your dog needs a new home.

If you would like to apply to place your dog into our Safe Rehoming Scheme please Click Here.

Safe Rehoming Scheme


Are you possibly looking for a new family member?

All our dogs come with rescue back up, are neutered, chipped & assessed.

We do not have a  set criteria for homes to meet as we try our best to match each dog up to the right home.

Each dog has its own needs and will need to fit into the home that suits them best.

You can check out the dogs that we have looking for their homes here.
