A great big thank you to Karen Manuel and the Sales Team for their fundraising sale of plants, bric a brac and refreshments on 27th May.

You have assisted in the care of all the animals but in particular, you will have helped one of our needy little fellas who has paralysis in the lower part of his body.
This brave dog has had an amputation and is receiving ongoing physio.

With gratitude from all the animals and Peter and myself.

OUR SHOP Shop | Magasin



As many of you will know, our shop came into existence because of Jenny Dew. Unfortunately, circumstances have meant that the shop hasn’t been open properly because of Jenny’s passing and because of the pandemic.

With respect to Jenny and to continue to use it as she intended, our shop is now open again. We have some things old, some things nearly new, nothing is borrowed but we do have some things that are blue!

If you’re interested in old prints, come and view a vintage print circa 1921-66; and if you like iconography or just like the old masters, this print of El Greco’s ‘Madonna Dolorosa” was sold by The Zwemmer Gallery, Litchfield Street, London WC2. The Tate Gallery holds the records of this company in their archive.

We would consider a fair offer if you would like to make this little piece of history your own!

Nothing is expensive and much of it is interesting.

Remember. – just €2 will feed a collie sized dog for one week!

We are open Tuesday to Saturday and there will always be someone around to welcome you and assist you.

IT’S WORTH A VISIT! (You might even catch sight of our Agility Team training for one of their national competitions)


The CCGDAE enjoyed hosting their first ever Regional Agility Competition on 2nd April.

The day was a wonderful success and we give a big thank you to everyone who participated and to all those who helped with organising the event.

You can read more in the link to the news paper article written prior to the event and look out for another article about the day.



The unexpected, yet the expected!

What a PHENOMENAL result for our sale on the 19th. A huge THANK YOU to all of our supporters old and new who purchased goods on the day, to all the benevoles who helped prepare, sell and clear up and to everyone who donated such wonderful items.

Salle de Fete before opening the doors

We raised funds to cover the usual needs for the coming months relating to parasite prevention and to feed the animals for many weeks. The inevitable vets bills will be partly covered and we hope that we will only need treatments for the unexpected, yet expected, poor new souls who come through our gates.

We look forward to seeing you all in the coming months.

Once again, THANK YOU to everyone! Anita, Peter and all the Animals

Solde de Printemps dimanche 19 Mars

Once again we have some wonderful bargains. From lovely pictures and decorative items like vases for those beautiful spring flowers to the necessities such as pots and pans, laundry baskets, ironing boards, bed linen, tableware and electrical goods.

Come and browse through nostalgia in our record collection and DVD’s at the lowest prices imaginable!


Grande Daze Rescue Center had a good year. We have made progress in the rehabilitation and adoption of some of our dogs.

Unfortunately, cats are very difficult to adopt and many people do not understand the cost of vaccination and identification which is, like dogs, mandatory for cats.

Thank you all for coming to our sales. Thank you also to the Mairie’s office for its constant support, the free loan of the hall and the take-out sale organised this year for the benefit of associations. We couldn’t help so many animals without you.

We are working on group walks so the dogs can be socialised. Covid has been difficult for everyone and a lot of dogs today are suffering from this period where they have not been able to be socialised properly.

If you need help with your pet or need advice, do not hesitate to contact us – we always have a solution to offer you.
