Dog Welfare Network


Our vision is of a world where every dog is loved and treated with respect. There will be no homeless, stray dogs wandering the streets and no healthy dogs that have to be put to sleep just because they are unwanted.


We aim to transform the quality of life for dogs worldwide by aiding communities to provide population management and support for community dogs, whilst assisting adoptions, enhancing local environments and enriching human-dog relationships in the process.


Compassion, Community-focused and Creative


We are compassionate in that we are seeking to alleviate canine suffering, whether that is by assisting adoptions or by raising funds towards the care of dogs in need.


The Dog Welfare Network is founded on the principle that existing foundations for dog rescue within local communities need to be built upon and supported, and that by working together these many small organisations will be stronger and achieve a bigger impact.


We know that the problem of unwanted dogs is so massive that we will have to be very creative and offer innovative approaches to finding solutions in order to make a difference.
