About us

Our Mission
Dogs Trust is working towards the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

What do we do?

Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and normally cares for around 14,000 dogs across its network of 20 rehoming centres in the UK and one in Dublin.

In April 2016 it became a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped, with their owners’ details kept up-to-date. In addition to wearing a collar and tag. Dogs Trust strongly believes that a microchip is an effective way to reunite a lost dog with their owner, and that’s why we have chipped over 1 million dogs.

Dogs Trust neuter all of the dogs in our care and also offer subsidised neutering for certain breeds of dogs in Northern Ireland.

The aim of the Education programme is to teach key audiences, primarily school-aged children, how to behave safely around dogs. We facilitate safe interactions in the home and in the
community so that the canine-human bond can be enjoyed to its fullest.

Our team of Education and Community Officers have reached over 2.5 million learners since the programme began in 2003.

Hope Project
Our Hope Project supports dog owners who are homeless or in housing crisis by providing free vet care for their dogs. The scheme runs in over 100 towns and cities in the UK. We also
work on encouraging hostels and housing providers to accept dogs through our Welcoming Dogs scheme and have an online directory of dog-friendly hostels.

Freedom Project
The Freedom Project is a free fostering service for dogs belonging to people fleeing domestic abuse. The service runs in Greater London & the Home Counties, Yorkshire, the North
of England, East Anglia and Scotland. Dogs are fostered for 6-9 months and all the dog’s expenses are covered.

Dogs School
Dogs Trust Dog School is a national network of experienced trainers providing fun, educational courses for all dog owners. The classes give owners and dogs the foundations they need to
develop a strong bond, cope with everyday domestic life and avoid some of the common pitfalls which lead to behaviour problems.
