About Us

Founded in 1891, Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK.

Our mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

Each year we care for around 16,000 dogs at our nationwide network of 18 rehoming centres. No healthy dog is ever destroyed.
