Dogs Trust Freedom Project

Dogs Trust Freedom Project logo

 

The Dogs Trust Freedom Project is a free fostering service for dogs belonging to families fleeing from domestic violence. The service operates in Greater London, Hertfordshire and Yorkshire. In Greater London & Hertfordshire we can also place cats with Cats Protection. This service was established in 2004 in Greater London and to date has placed over 1100 pets.

Families fleeing domestic violence are usually unable to take their pets with them into a refuge or temporary accommodation, so in many cases they are reluctant to leave their home until they know there is somewhere safe for their pets.  Dogs Trust, alongside other pets fostering services in the UK, offers a solution.

Pets referred to the project are placed with volunteer foster carers until their owners are in a position to take them back.

To refer a dog or cat to our service, please contact us direct and we can send out referral forms by fax, email or post.

In many cases your refuge or support agency will be able to help you access and complete these forms.

If you are fleeing domestic violence and have not already obtained advice on your situation then you should call the National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247.
