Founded in 1891, Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

Here’s what we do in a nutshell…

  • Every year we care for over 15,000 stray and abandoned dogs at our 20 rehoming centres around the UK.
  • We run subsidised neutering campaigns in areas of the UK with the most acute stray dog problems.
  • Our Education Officers give thousands of classroom presentations every year.
  • Our FREEDOM Project helps pet owners who are fleeing domestic violence by fostering their animals while they start a new life.
  • The HOPE Project gives preventative veterinary care to dogs belonging to homeless people.
  • We advise government on any matters concerning dog ownership and animal welfare.

Dogs Trust relies completely on voluntary donations, with more than a third of our income coming from gifts in Wills. If you would like your love of dogs to live on, please consider remembering Dogs Trust in your Will. Whether it’s a gift of £100 or £100,000, you really can help save the lives of countless dogs in the future.
