Covid-19 update: Our rehoming centres in England will be closed to the public until lockdown lifts in early December. We’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with increased social distancing measures in place to keep our staff and adopters safe.

Having a dog can be a great and rewarding relationship. However, it is also a very big commitment, demanding time, money and care. Before getting a dog you should think about your lifestyle and carefully consider what kind of dog you get, and where you get it from.
