About: Dogs Trust is an animal welfare charity and humane society in the United Kingdom which specialises in the well-being of dogs. The charity rehabilitates and finds new homes for dogs which have been abandoned or given up by their owners.
The National Canine Defence League (NCDL) was founded in 1891 at a meeting during the first Crufts show chaired by Lady Gertrude Stock. In 2003, the National Canine Defense League was rebranded as Dogs Trust.
Dogs Trust has 20 rehoming centres across the UK, its first international rehoming centre in Dublin and two large mobile rehoming units known as Dogmobiles.
Dogs Trust never euthanises healthy dogs, however some dogs may have had a particularly bad start in life and would not be happy living in a normal home environment. The charity takes care of these dogs under its popular Sponsor a Dog scheme.
