A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.®

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.®

Every 6 minutes we get a call from someone wanting to give up their dog.
