Philanthropy

Funded by dog loving individuals

We receive no government funding. Everything that we do for our dogs is due to the generosity of our supporters, a wonderful community of dog loving individuals. 

If you are considering making a gift then please contact our Philanthropy Manager Josh Bone or give us a call at 02038790539.

Like many charities, we're feeling the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thankfully, our dogs are blissfully unaware of the crisis happening around them, and our dedicated team are doing an incredible job to keep going, in spite of every difficulty created by lockdown. Now more than ever, we need your help to continue this great work.

By giving a gift today you can play a vital role in increasing the number of dogs we care for and reduce the number of innocent strays being put to sleep in local pounds every year. Alongside our rehoming work, we have a number of key projects and your support could be life saving for dogs across the UK and overseas.

Our projects include:

  • Dogs Trust Worldwide

    Dogs Trust Worldwide gave financial support to around 50 projects in 30 different countries in 2019. Working with our partner, Mission Rabies, we have helped to vaccinate over 1.2 million dogs against rabies since 2013.

  • Puppy Smuggling

    Since 2015, we have taken over 1,100 puppies into our care through our landmark quarantine initiative. The initiative aims to disrupt the trade in illegally imported puppies by ensuring any dogs seized by enforcement agencies can receive the care and support that they need.
