Our Aim For The Future

At Dog Welfare Network we support a number of dog rescue shelters and organisations across Europe, highlighting the practical and financial support that they need, and explaining what you can do to help.

We promote the fostering and adoption of dogs that have been forced to roam the streets and are often left to suffer or are even abused. But this is only part of the story.

As the old saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure”, therefore the ideal situation would be to reduce the number of dogs left to roam in this way in the first place. How do we do that? By rolling out a multi-national neutering programme, thus reducing the number of unwanted dogs and preventing the problem spiralling even further out of control.

Many dog rescue shelters do operate some kind of neutering programme, but their resources are limited and therefore so is the impact that they are able to make. We ultimately aim to raise funds to initiate and maintain larger neutering programmes in the areas where they are most needed.

In the short term, we will be inviting businesses to advertise on on a page that gives information of a dog shelter in their area, in exchange for the cost of neutering a dog or number of dogs.

You can also visit our website to identify which rescue centres are already running neutering programmes and would welcome your donations.

Don’t let more dogs be born into terrible conditions just to suffer. Let’s look after the dogs that we already have, which includes running a responsible neutering programme.
