Most web sites have a forum, chat group or message board (except this one). The ones listed are either not attached to a particular rescue organisation or are of wider interest. They are all concerned primarily with Animal Rescue rather than chat about pets and are based in the UK. If you know about a similar group please submit it using the 'Add your Site' form. Forums come and go with alarming frequency - If any of these have disappeared please let us know.
