Help with Veterinary Costs

Important update on the Hope Project in relation to coronavirus

Please be aware that due to the current situation in relation to coronavirus, we are continuing to run our veterinary scheme but with restricted resources. If you, or someone you are supporting, needs to access free vet care for their dog, please do get in touch with us and we will do all we can to help.

Notice for vet practices

If a client's dog needs emergency vet treatment and they are homeless or in a housing crisis, please contact us and we will see if we can help with the cost of vet bills. 


The Dogs Trust Hope Project Veterinary Scheme provides free veterinary treatment to dogs whose owners are homeless or in housing crisis.

Dogs who are part of the scheme are entitled to free flea and worming treatments, vaccinations, neutering and microchipping. Dogs Trust will also fund most additional necessary treatments that the dogs may need.

The scheme runs in 113 towns and cities across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It’s run with the help of local veterinary practices and homelessness organisations.
