Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the United Kingdom, caring for over 14,000 animals each year across our network of 21 rehoming centres in the UK and one in Dublin.
We’ve been helping dogs for over 130 years. In that time, we’ve found forever homes for hundreds of thousands of our faithful friends, dramatically reduced numbers being put to sleep, and helped to all but eliminate strays from the UK’s streets.
We’ve also established universal microchipping in the UK, campaigned tirelessly on important issues such as puppy smuggling, and grown influence and impact on the international stage. But we know there’s so much more to do.
There are still millions of dogs – and people who love dogs – around the world who need support.
Organisational aims & mission
Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. We love dogs. It’s why we are working to become a global force for good in dog welfare, doing whatever we can to help dogs live the life to the full. To make it happen we recently launched our ambitious 10-year strategy.
