Dogs Trust Freedom Project

The Dogs Trust Freedom Project provides a temporary fostering service for dogs belonging to people fleeing domestic abuse. 

The Dogs Trust Freedom Project runs across the whole of Bedfordshire but also works in Greater London & the Home Counties, Yorkshire, the North East, North West & Scotland. 

This is a specialist, confidential dog fostering service only available for those fleeing domestic abuse. 

The service is completely free and all costs are covered, including veterinary treatment, food and any equipment that the dog may need whilst they are in foster care. 

Fostering placements are offered for up to 6 months with the aim of reuniting pets with their owners within this time. Dogs are placed directly into homes with experienced volunteer foster carers. 

The project is kept completely confidential, owners are kept regularly updated with monthly updates and pictures of how their pets are getting along in their foster homes.

For more information please call our experienced and understanding team.
