Sharing your life with a dog is wonderful but it's now so easy to give or get a dog on impulse. We want everyone to 'paws' and consider before bringing a dog home.
We're still there for you if things go wrong, but getting it right at the beginning makes the world of difference.
With your support, we can help more people realise that A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.®
...to anyone considering getting a dog, to help them decide if they are ready for this long-term commitment.
Donate to help us support three-legged dogs like Missy, abandoned days before Christmas and heavily pregnant. Without us, Missy and her puppies would not have survived.
Become a foster carer, and welcome a Dogs Trust dog into your home as they wait to find their forever home.
Help us care for some of our long-term residents like Frankie who need extra support to prepare them for their forever homes.
