Nico’s History

Founded in 2008 by Lisa Evans after a visit to the local dog pound which left her heartbroken at what she witnessed, Nico’s Legacy Rescue was born. Lisa pledged to do something about these homeless dogs who were unclaimed strays sleeping on bare concrete, without beds or any form of heating and from here on there was no going back.

Originally named “The Welsh Poundies” every weekend was spent doing a pound list of dogs that had completed their time in the pound and now needed a safe secure rescue space to secure a future. The other option was unthinkable! Rescue spaces were sought and transport runs to the rescue spaces arranged. It was never ending.

As the years past more and more dogs were surrendered directly to us instead of the pound and a name change was on the cards so after much soul searching Nico’s Legacy Rescue took its new name. Fast forward 10 years and Nico’s Legacy we are now a rescue in their own right. Run entirely by a wonderful team of volunteers, nobody from the rescue takes a wage, every penny goes to the dogs. We still work with other trusted, ethically run rescues and are currently operating as a non for profit organisation but are working towards charity status, something that we are passionate about.

We hope you find our website informative and interesting and remember, if you have any questions, are interested in adopting/fostering or would like to volunteer please get in touch. We don’t bite!
