Video: Dog Trust reaches out to homeless dog owners and families escaping domestic violence

I'd like you to take a moment out of your day to watch this video:



I wonder how many people out there who are dedicated supporters of Dogs Trust realise that there are successful outreach programmes like Freedom Project providing help to families escaping domestic violence? I didn't until shortly before I came to work here, and I thought I knew perfectly well what the charity did.

There are other people in housing crisis too. For many homeless dog owners, their four-legged companion is their best friend, and they will do whatever they can to keep their pals healthy and happy. Dogs Trust Hope Project offers a Veterinary Care Entitlement Card scheme, which enabled homeless dog owners to access free or subsidised vet care including some preventative treatments.

At Dogs Trust we are always looking for foster carers in Freedom Project regions (currently London and Yorkshire) and participating veterinary practices for Hope Project (across the country). Please follow the links to learn more about the projects and offer what support you can.

If you or someone you know could benefit from these projects, contact the relevant office by email:
