COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff and our visitors safe.

We’re always developing ways to support dog owners and improve dog welfare.

Right now our research team are embarking on a study to understand how COVID-19 lockdown measures are affecting dog welfare and human-dog relationships in the UK.

Please click here to take part in our study and reflect on dog ownership during C19.

This study is open to anyone who is aged 18 years or older and living in the UK.

Your participation will be extremely valuable to enhancing our understanding of the impacts that COVID-19 lifestyle changes are having on dog ownership.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with our research team via email: [email protected]
