We're the cutest pups around, and we need your help to get the best start in life!
We believe all dogs deserve to live life to the full
Since 1891, we’ve been working for a better future for dogs and the people who love them.
When a dog is in distress, we care for them. When a dog needs a home, we find them a loving family. When an owner needs a helping hand (or paw) – or they just can’t cope, we’re ready to step in.
For every dog, for every owner, we’re by their side through thick and thin, throughout their lives. The bond they have is special to us. It changes lives, making each day happier and more complete. It’s why we believe A dog is for life.®
Discover who we are, what we do, and how we’ll never stop fighting to make tomorrow’s world a better place for all dogs.
Discover what we do for dogs, for their owners, and for generations of dogs to come.
Our passionate and dedicated staff and volunteers have driven our many achievements since then, from changing laws and expanding abroad to supporting thousands of dogs and owners.
Together, we have made huge strides forward for dogs. Explore the impact of the work we did last year.
