Many refuges for families fleeing domestic abuse can't accommodate animals. Some owners can be afraid to leave an abusive partner because of what might happen to a dog they leave behind. So many stay, because they feel it's the only way they can protect their beloved pet.
Working with refuge organisations, we find safe foster homes for dogs in need. And we provide them with food, toys, bedding and veterinary care. This empowers owners to leave, as they know their dog is safe.
When the time is right, we reunite dogs with their loving owner - so they can begin a new life together.
Visits to our online information about the Freedom Project have increased 300% during lockdown. When Government restrictions start to relax, most of us will enjoy more freedom. Your support will help people and dogs in abusive situations find their freedom too. People like Gemma, and her dog Dusty.
