We’re endlessly grateful for every penny donated by our generous supporters. Your donations make a real difference to the dogs in our care and help us achieve our goal of making the world a better place for dogs everywhere.  

Here’s just a snapshot of the impact your donations have.  

How you help us revolutionise rehoming

Making sure that every dog in our care finds a loving new home as quickly as possible is one of our biggest priorities.

We love and care for every dog until they find their forever family.  

Your donations help us ensure that our centres are state-of-the-art, with tip-top facilities. From hydrotherapy tanks to training barns and paddocks, our dogs deserve the very best.

Your donations help cover the costs of keeping our rehoming centres ticking along nicely.  

They keep them nice and clean, with cosy beds and comfortable kennels for each dog. They also help pay for our incredible staff members, from canine carers to training and behaviour experts.  


How you help us be there for dog owners, every step of the walk

Thanks to your donations, we’re able to provide incredible support to dog owners throughout their journey of ownership in a variety of ways.

Your support makes our life-changing and lifesaving programmes like the Hope and Freedom Projects possible.

Our advice, videos, training tips are there to help owners find the answers they might need to some of the issues they’re facing.  

Our in-person and virtual Dog School training classes and 1-2-1 sessions help provide every dog and their owner with a solid foundation of skills from which to develop.

How you help us educate future generations of dog owners  

Your support has enabled us to deliver vital educational programmes to children and young people all around the UK.

We help them understand responsible dog ownership and safe behaviour around dogs and help to make them feel more confident around dogs.

These programmes are vital in helping us influence and motivate changes in human behaviour so that we see an improvement in overall dog welfare.
