About Hope Rescue

Hope Rescue is small dog rescue charity based in South Wales. we are primarily a co-ordinating rescue saving dogs from emergency situations. The majority of the dogs we help are stray dogs facing destruction after spending their statutory 7 days in the pound.


We commit to take all the stray dogs from four Local Authorities in South Wales – Newport City Council, Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Torfaen County Borough Council and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council - irrespective of breed, age or medical condition.


Our ethos is that “no-one gets left behind and every dog gets a chance”.


Such a small charity with big ambitions needs all the support we can get- please check out our website to see ways you can help.

After much thought and deliberation it is with great sadness that we must inform you that Machen Show will not take place in 2020. 

We have been closely monitoring the situation and following Government advice and the uncertainties surrounding the likely progress of COVID-19, we have made the decision as a committee to cancel the show for this year.

This wasn't an easy decision to make, but by cancelling now we know we'll be in a position to be back on Saturday 3rd July 2021.

All of us on the Machen Show committee would like to thank you for your support and understanding at this time.
