Why we need your support

  • Every week 1000 people are making the call to give up their dog.
  • While most dogs find a loving new home within about six weeks, some dogs need love and support for longer.
  • We rely on sponsorships to look after the 1600 dogs in our care at any one time.

Your support can make the world of difference.
