FIND A CERTAIN BREED AT A BREED SPECIFIC RESCUE

There are many rescues specialising in one particular breed. The only ones I have included among the list of general rescues are the breeds there is a huge overpopulation of, such as Stafford Bull Terriers & Greyhounds. This is because of the huge amount of abuse and abandonment these particular breeds face.

To search for rescues that specalise in single breeds of dog only, please see Specific Breed Rescues.

It is still worth browsing the rescues in the list below when looking for a pure breed, as around 1 in 4 dogs at shelters and rescues are pure breed and pedigree dogs.

FIND A PET IN THE UK

To find a pet to adopt from a UK based rescue or shelter, see the website links below. Many will have ‘No Kill’ policies, but others will not.

There will also be pages on many of the sites with details about fostering and sponsoring pets and other animals.
