Alabama Rot warning

Dog owners warned over Alabama Rot, the FATAL fungal infection spreading across the UK.

Vets have issued a new warning over Alabama Rot, a deadly fungal infection that has affected 14 dogs in the first four months of 2016, and 78 since 2012.

The disease first appeared in Greyhounds in USA in the 1980s but has now spread to 16 English counties, including Kent, London, Hampshire, Greater Manchester and Dorset.

Voluntary Dog-walkers Needed

The dogs need walkers. Must be 18yrs+ and able to drive to us.

We need people who are able to commit to at least 1 morning per week on a regular basis and/or be flexible to swap to another day if needed.

If you can help, you would need to be at the kennels in Stondon Massey between 9am-10am latest and be able to stay for a couple of hours (max). Please contact 01277 821032 or email wkrescue@btinternet.com.

All of the dogs at the kennels are strays with histories unknown, so you would need to feel confident around dogs of all sizes.


Established as a family-run concern in the 1970s, Wallace Kennels Dog Rescue have been working hard to protect and care for vulnerable, abandoned or unfortunate dogs in the Essex area for over four decades.

With your help we continue to offer shelter to hundreds of dogs each year, matching them with loving homes willing to offer new and exciting lives, lived securely in safety and  in comfort at last.

We are well-known for the outstanding care we take of our residents while they are with us, and while we hope their stay will be a short one, we do our very best to make sure their stay in kennels is the best it can be.

All the dogs are exercised and socialised regularly, and we take pride in making sure the right dog is matched with the right home.

We do hope you like our site and can spare a few minutes to browse some of our other pages, visit the Wallace Store, or perhaps even make a small donation to help with the work we do, every little helps and goes a long way.

Alternatively please visit our social media sites, where the newer dogs in are posted, or share our pages using the handy links provided.

Thank you for looking and hope to see you soon.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us on 01277 821032.

New Microchipping Law

What you need to know.

Three years ago the UK Government introduced plans to change the way we ‘register’ our pets. On April 6th, that new legislation came into practice. From this date forward, every dog in England, Scotland and Wales is required by law to be microchipped.
