Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.


As per the Charity Commission’s expectations, we’re required to make public our policies, procedures and measures where protecting people is concerned.

Modern Slavery

This statement is published under the provision of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 with reference to the current financial year. Modern slavery is a hidden crime that encompasses slavery, servitude, forced labour and human trafficking. Dogs Trust is committed to continuously improving its high standards of operation to combat slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chain, and in acting ethically and with integrity in its business relationships. Modern slavery has no place in our organisation or supply chain, and we take a zero tolerance approach to it.

The success of Dogs Trust is driven by our team of dedicated and passionate staff and volunteers and our loyal and generous supporters. Without them, we would not succeed in our mission to rehome as many dogs as possible and never to put a healthy dog to sleep.
