Dogs Trust Founded in 1891 and in our 126th year, Dogs Trust is the largest rehomer of stray and abandoned dogs in the UK and Ireland. We want to solve the problem of why there are so many unwanted dogs and aim to do this by raising the profile of dogs, promoting dog welfare and encouraging responsible dog ownership. Imagine a UK where all dogs can enjoy a happy life; we are determined to STOP healthy dogs being put to sleep and we will NEVER destroy a healthy dog in our care. This vision drives the work of Dogs Trust, the UK’s leading dog welfare charity. We receive no government funding and rely on voluntary donations to continue our work.
