The Dog's Trust

Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) was founded in 1891. Today, it is best known for its famous slogan "A dog is for life, not just for Christmas".

Dogs best friend


Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) was founded in 1891. Today, it is best known for its famous slogan A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.


It has grown to be the largest dog welfare charity in the UK, with 18 rehoming centres that care for around 16,000 stray and abandoned dogs every year.


Sadly, over 100,000 stray and abandoned dogs are picked up on our streets every year. Shockingly, many of these dogs are put to sleep through no fault of their own. Dogs Trust promises to never put a healthy dog down and its mission is to stop this tragic waste of life.


Dogs Trust rehoming centres across the UK offer everything abandoned dogs need to get them back on their paws again. They offer comfortable kennels, first class veterinary care, exercise facilities, and all the TLC that their canine guests deserve.


As long as dogs need a strong voice and a helping hand to protect them, Dogs Trust will be there. But, as the charity is reliant on voluntary donations, it can only continue its work thanks to the generosity of those who give donations or leave gifts in their Wills.


Peace of mind


Many people worry about what would happen to their dogs if they were no longer there to care for him or her. The Canine Care Card is a special FREE service provided by Dogs Trust that addresses this problem. If you carry a Canine Care Card, the charity promises to look after your dog should anything happen to you. And, as Dogs Trust never destroys a healthy dog, you can be assured that your beloved pet will be in safe hands.


To find out more about the Canine Care Card call 0207 837 0006, email ccc@dogstrust.org.uk or write to Dogs Trust, 17 Wakley Street, London EC1V 7RQ (quoting PLIFE) or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk.
