Freedom Project

Providing temporary foster care for dogs belonging to families fleeing domestic violence


We always need volunteers living in Greater London & the Home Counties, Yorkshire, the North East and North West of England, and the Central Belt of Scotland to become foster carers. If you would like to apply, please complete our online enquiry form 

We think there are many fantastic benefits to being part of the Freedom Project:

  • The enjoyment of caring for a dog without the lifetime commitment
  • You will be helping a family and their dog to escape from an abusive home
  • Walking a dog is a fantastic way to exercise and keep fit and healthy
  • Dogs are a great talking point and a way to get out and meet new people
  • You’ll receive ongoing advice and support from our friendly Freedom Project staff
  • Dogs Trust covers all food, expenses and veterinary bills

Without the help and support of our dedicated volunteer foster carers, we wouldn't be able to run the Freedom Project. Please complete our online enquiry form
