Dogs Trust

Have you been affected by Puppy Smuggling?

We have been investigating the cruel puppy smuggling trade for many years, and it is thanks to people like you that we can demonstrate the full scale of the problem.

We are always on the lookout for stories to share as part of our media campaign. This aims to warn others that this trade exists and to prevent more dogs from falling victim to unscrupulous dealers. Please don’t worry, we will not share any of the information you have passed on to us and your details are completely confidential. Unless you have specifically asked us not to, we may contact you within the next few days to find out a bit more.  

If you would like to share your story with us, please email us at [email protected].

Thank you again for sharing your story with us.

For over 50 years, we’ve promised to never put down a healthy dog. We keep our promises, and that includes treating your personal details with care. 

We promise to only share your data as you have agreed for case study/media purposes, and to let you know in advance when we are planning to use it.
