How You Can Help

At the Dog Welfare Network, we are aware that there is a huge number of stray, unwanted, uncared for dogs across the world. Although we are based in the UK, we have seen at first hand the plight of these dogs across Europe and witnessed dog shelters struggling to raise funds and meet the demand for safe places for these abandoned animals.

That’s why we’ve launched our website giving information about many of the dog shelters that exist across the UK and the rest of Europe. Our aim is to raise awareness of dog rescue organisations, so that they may come together and pool their resources whilst enabling members of the general public to help in any way that they can.

It can be heartbreaking when travelling to different countries on holiday or for business, to be met by sights of bedraggled unwanted pets. You may often wonder how you can help them, but leave without doing anything, as you’re not sure what to do.

For future trips, just visit our website and click on the country in question. This will enable you to find out what local dog rescue centres there are and what you can do to help them. If you visit any of the shelters listed, we would value your feedback via so that we can add up-to-date information and ensure that shelters that are exhibiting bad practice are not being featured on our website.

Thank you for your support.
