Chimney Farm International Dog Rescue

Briars Foundation

Chimney Farm International Dog Rescue started life as UK Romanian Dog Rescue and was founded in 2014 by Jennifer Gilbert and Lisa Webster, two dedicated animal lovers, who brought 28 imprisoned dogs to the UK from a horrific existence in Romania, where laws allow inhumane treatment of captured stray dogs.

Lisa and Jen have been rescuing these dogs and re-homing Romanian, Greek and Bosnian dogs in the UK for over 2 years now. By joining forces with Chimney Farm, and increasing their fundraising efforts they will be able to expand and develop an international rescue program focusing on helping dogs from other countries where animal welfare laws don’t exist as well as developing much needed overseas neutering and education programs to reduce the number strays born into an existence of hardship suffering and neglect.

At Chimney Farm the dogs are housed in beautifully converted stables with a secure one acre grass paddock to explore and remember what it feels like to be a dog again! They are loved and walked daily by a team of dedicated volunteers. As part of the rescuing mission the dogs are rehomed to suitable adopters, who undergo a strict rehoming process.

Chimney Farm is based in Guildford Surrey. It is also home to a small animal Sanctuary for other unwanted animals as well as the Chimney Farm Project which offers Children that are unable to access mainstream education a chance to learn in a enriched environment where animal welfare and care is central to their daily school day.
