Dogs Trust, the Leading UK Dog Welfare Charity
Dogs Trust has been in existence since 1891 (the name was changed from the "National Canine Defence League" in 1993). and was set up by Lady Gertrude Stock after the first Crufts show ever held. Their most famous slogan is "A dog is for life - not just for Christmas".
There is a huge problem of stray and abandoned dogs in the UK. In 2005, over 100,000 stray dogs were collected by local authority dog wardens. While local authorities do their best to return stray dogs to their owners or rehome them, nearly 8,000 dogs are still being put to sleep just because they have been left to fend for themselves. It is Dogs Trust's policy to never destroy a healthy dog, and where rehoming is not possible for various reasons, the animal is given sanctuary for the remainder of their days.
addition to rehoming, Dogs Trust campaign
tirelsessly for the rights of
our four legged friends. Recent campaigns have included
lobbying against tail docking, and against the wholesale euthanasia of
hunt dogs following the fox hunting ban. They also run
regular microchipping and neutering initiatives in the most needy
areas, and promote responsible dog ownership through education. All
centres, plus the website, provide leaflets and factsheets on all
manner of dog ownership issues ranging from "children and dogs" to
dealing with the death of your dog.
