WAG Feature: Freedom from fear
In this issue we have focused on one of our projects that is extremely close to our hearts, the Freedom Project, a unique pet fostering service for people fleeing domestic abuse. Want to know more? Just watch this!
Want to know more about the Freedom Project? Well, as our video explains, the scheme works by temporarily placing the pet at risk with a volunteer foster carer who will care for them in their own home until they can be safely reunited with their owner. Total anonymity is assured, and dogs will not be fostered in the area where the owner is from. Our Freedom Project staff are always on hand to provide help and support, with placements constantly monitored.
Want to get involved?
We urgently need more foster carers in the central belt of Scotland, Yorkshire, the north east of England, Essex, Hertfordshire and London. We cover all of the dog food and expenses, including any veterinary care or medicine needed. Plus, you'll get a visit from a member of our team each month to see how you are getting on! All we ask is that any potential foster carers have experience of caring for dogs, is at home for most of the day, and if you have a dog of your own it must be neutered.
Do you want to become a foster carer for the Freedom Project? Email us now!

A former resident of Dogs Trust Manchester training to be a police dog is doing well with her training, we've got the latest update...
‘Jana is progressing well in all disciplines and is still showing great potential for being successful. Due to the extensive training that the dogs have to complete we gradually increase the level of training to ensure that it is commensurate with a dogs' age and maturity level. I would anticipate that in the next 4-6 months Jana will achieve the necessary standard to pass her assessments.’

In this issue, we highlight the latest report in our Puppy Smuggling investigation.
Meet Charly - one of thousands of puppies illegally smuggled into Great Britain every year. Devious sellers are advertising underage, unvaccinated puppies, starving and dehydrated from the horrendous journey they have faced to get here. Charly is one of the lucky ones, but hundreds more don’t survive the cruel Puppy Smuggling trade. Watch and share to help Dogs Trust save more puppies like Charly, and email your local MP.
