We are a small rescue with foster homes, which help unwanted Romania dogs that appear in free adverts or dog pounds, who are due to be PTS. Our rescue is a non profit organisation and we ever so grateful for the help of donations. We are a non destruct rescue. We also work in partnership with other rescues if we have no room to accommodate.

Dog of The Week
Y’all meet Tabitha. She is a 2/3 year old medium (cocker spaniel sized) crossbreed desperately seeking a forever home to call her own. Tabitha has had a turbulent past. I could sit here and tell you about it; I could tell you how she lived on the streets and was tortured by people. How she struggled to survive and eventually got caught and ended up in a kill shelter. Fearing everything and everyone. But I would rather tell you about her future.
I would rather tell you how this gorgeous girl has the soul of a puppy. Her bright eyes and optimism is absolutely contagious. She makes these funny joyous little noises when she sees you walking towards her. She loves listening to you speak. She is learning to trust and dreams of having a home of her own.
She’s in foster with 14 dogs and does well with them. Her new owners will need to appreciate that she can be nervous with dogs at first so will need slow understanding introductions.
Tabitha will need a very secure garden as she is an escape artist and exceptionally hard to capture due to the abuse in her past. She will also need continuing work on leads. She is slowly getting more tolerant of a harness but is yet to walk on them.
She is quite clean in the house and getting there with her housebreaking. This will need continued work in her new home. She’s starting to explore her environment a little more as she settles so will need owners who are prepared for this. We have started crate training her which she is ok with in small intervals. She’s just a blank canvas and needs help learning how to be in a home as she’s never had one before.
She’s a little rough around the edges but she loves attention, cuddles and lives to please you. She just needs an understanding home with people who are going to give this girl the time she needs to learn.
No cats for Tabitha or children under 12+ as she is still very nervous.
Homecheck and adoption fee apply.
Fostering With One Paw
Fostering helps save a dogs life and can be very rewarding but it comes with a challenge. Some of our dogs have come from horrible backgrounds and may need to be house trained. By fostering a dog, you will be assessing the dogs progress in your own home and will be asked to feedback to One Paw on a daily/weekly basis.
Foster dogs will stay in a foster home for a minimum of 2 weeks, up to four weeks depending on their circumstances. Possibly longer, if needed. We only foster out to people in the Nottingham, Derby and Leicester areas only.
” After a great afternoon at Wollaton Hall for One Paw At A Time Dog Rescue event, it’s hit home about where our Sansa actually came from. She was behind bars, in awful conditions back in Romania. The guys at this rescue are amazing and I can’t thank them enough for bringing this amazing girl into our lives “
” One paw at a time rescue is a friendly supportive rescue. Help is always on hand. The dogs are placed in safe loving foster homes until forever home are found “
” I support my son Shaun and son-inlaw 100% on what they do to save these beautiful dogs. Everything it does not matter if its a fish to a dog they all need a second chance! I am so proud of both of them for giving the dogs new forever homes…Mum Dawn “
” I think my brother Shaun & his partner Shane do an amazing job in rescuing dogs from Romania. It doesn’t matter what country a dog is from as long as it gets a loving home and I support them 100% in what they do…GREAT JOB! “
