Since Dogpages began 12 years ago, any
number of commercial sites and businesses have sprung up seeking to
profit from dog rescue. Dogpages remains a non-commercial site
run solely by volunteers. You won't find any profit-making adverts
here and users of our forums won't have their details collected and
sold on for marketing purposes.
We hope you agree with us and support us in our belief that rescue
dogs should not be seen as a marketing opportunity or a source of
profit. And we hope you enjoy the difference.
Finding a rescue
'All-breed' dog-rescue centres and organisations
throughout the UK and Ireland have been grouped by region (click
are listed separately by breed type. Over 1000 contacts have
been included so there's sure to be one near you.
While the larger charities are well known, there are many smaller
rescue organisations, often operated on a very small budget
but still doing a great job. Not all smaller organisations have
internet sites but where details are known these have been included.
The larger organisations, the Dogs Trust (formerly NCDL - National
Canine Defence League), Battersea Dogs Home, the RSPCA and the
Scottish SPCA, each have new web-sites and their centres are
all listed here.
Smaller dog rescues are usually run by
volunteers and many may not have dedicated kennels. All would
like to hear from potential adopters but please contact them
before visiting their listed address in case an appointment
is necessary. The larger centres are usually open for most days
of the week including weekends but check first.
