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.

Why sponsor?

How your sponsorship benefits Dogs Trust

Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and last year alone we cared for over 15,000 dogs. Most dogs find loving new homes within about six weeks but those who need a little extra care are always safe with us because we never destroy a healthy dog.

Dogs Trust is reliant on the generosity of the public to help dogs in need, so by sponsoring a dog for as little as £1 per week means you won’t just be helping your sponsor dog but all their friends too!

Why we need your help

With more than 1,700 stray and abandoned dogs in our care at any one time, we really need your help. We receive no government funding and are totally dependent on the generosity of people like you.

You'll get a best friend for life

When you decide to sponsor a dog you'll receive three updates a year from your chum and a sponsorship pack, including a special photo certificate of your new pal, a wallet-sized sponsor's card, a window sticker and fridge magnet.

Or why not sponsor a dog as a gift for someone else? It would make a grrrreat gift for a dog loving friend.
