Support Us

We depend entirely on the support of our local community to provide the best possible care we can for dogs from across the Midlands that need us.

Why we need your support

69% of our dogs are stray or abandoned

We work with nine local authorities across the Midlands from South Staffordshire to Warwickshire.

Caring for homeless dogs since 1892

We look after around 2,500 Midlands dogs every year, rescuing, reuniting and rehoming 365 days of the year.

We don't receive any government funding

To operate we are entirely reliant on the generosity of our supporters in the local community and business community.

 Whether it’s making a donation, raising money, running a marathon, raising money as a business, or school, giving your time or leaving a gift in your will, there are lots of ways you can support us to provide our vital services for local homeless dogs.
