Can I introduce you please to a lump of cheddar cheese……
Our dogs are delighted to support the team tomorrow night, and as a thank you to all of our supporters they wanted to show you their football skills!!
Thank you all for your continued support, our dogs especially our long termers who consider Maxis to be their home wouldn’t be here without you. Our longest termer has been with us 4 years already.
Football is coming home…we hope one day we can say the same for all of our dogs and they will be going to their home.
We need your support now more than ever and we are grateful for all donations.
Massive thank you to Hope Wray for making this video ❤️🐶.


We would like to thank the friends and family of Ann Motson. She was a huge dog lover and donations from them have made to animal charities in her honour.
Maxi’s Mates received £153 this week and we thank you all very much.
Also Kevin Peart, sadly passed away and this is the collection from his funeral. Kevin adopted Eric one of our dogs who has now been rehomed with friends of his, he would have been so happy Eric’s with people he knows. The donation was £220 and we thank all his family and friends very much.


Brent Charlie Welfare Committee have awarded Maxi’s Mates £300. We would like to thank them for this lovely donation and for their wonderful support, it means a lot to us and our dogs. 


Thanks to the guys at AMM Waste Removal Services for taking all the rubbish we have accumulated over the last months.
Also for coming whenever we need them which is a great benefit to us.
Thank you so much for supporting Maxi’s Mates it means a lot.


Staff from Tesco Billingham came with loads of donations of food, beds, treats and toys. And also £100 donation.
They helped spread the word about us and what we do by making a leaflet for their customers and giving them out. It also asked if they would like to buy something in store or donate. They received £171 so spent £71 on beds, the rest they donated to funds.
Thanks to Ross, Emma, Megan, Alex, Chloe and all the staff and customers at Tesco.
It’s wonderful support from people like yourselves that allows us to keep helping the dogs. 


We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Pets at homes charity Support Adoption For Pets for awarding Maxi’s a £5,000 grant to help towards running costs during the pandemic. They also arranged for a charity pallet of dry food to help us stay afloat. We are so very grateful to them. Support like this means the difference to us staying open and being able to care for dogs that need help.

Christmas day 2020

We would like to share our video edited by Hope Wray of the dogs on Christmas Day.
Thank you to all those people who donated to Maxi’s Mates at Christmas and throughout the whole of 2020.
Thank you to the staff and volunteers who gave up their time on Christmas Day and Boxing Day to make sure the dogs were all walked, fed and cared for as usual.
Thank you so much to the people that cooked all the food to make such a special meal for them. We had enough for both days. The dogs loved it.
Thank you to Santa who called by to give all the dogs an early present and also photographed by Hope Wray.
Again we can’t do what we do without the kindness of so many people. We are grateful and the dogs are so grateful as without it they wouldn’t have a home with us.
Let’s hope 2021 is better for everyone. Let’s hope 2021 sees more of our long termers adopted like Will. They deserve a home, they have been waiting for it for so long . Just needs someone to take a chance on them and allow them to fit in to their family . Rescue is the best thing ever.


We would like to say a very special thank you to John and Ste from Steron Locksmiths Ltd for their fantastic donation of £1000. It’s a wonderful amount and couldn’t have come at a better time. Thank you for supporting Maxi’s Mates, we are very grateful.
