A BIG thank you is also needed here for the transporting, fostering and homecheck teams that do their jobs behind the scenes without a moan. We really do think you are our backbone, and we are so grateful for everything that you do.

If you would like to consider fostering, or registering to be a transporter or a homechecker, please look under the drop down 'Volunteer' on our website.

Christmas Party


Sunday December 13th 12-4 pm.

Santa is getting ready for his most favourite event before Christmas! This year, the BRNGB Christmas party will be held in South Wales, (we do like to move around the country to see as many of you as possible!) This year, we aren't having a fun dog show, but we are having Basset Party games and fancy dress! There will be lunch, (included in the ticket price) plus cakes and mince pies! Music is provided again this year by DJ Daz, and Santa will be making his entrance with prizes for the dogs and the children. Heidi is busy sewing away with new creations to sell, and lots of people are making cakes and cookies for our cake stall.

We know for lots of you it's a long journey and people have asked us if there are dog friendly hotels available locally, the good news is there are! Please contact us here if you'd like some more information.

Our Christmas raffle will be pulled during lunch, and what a cracker it's lining up to be!

Our Paypal address is All you need to do is mark your payment XMAS in the message box, together with how many strips you'd like.
