Ever since our foundation over three decades ago, our aim has been simple; to make a real difference to the health of dogs and dog welfare, no matter what their breed or background.
We also appreciate how caring for our canine companions has an incalculable impact on the people whose lives they touch. Our work with dog charities throughout the UK gives us a unique understanding of how best to deliver projects that benefit both dogs and their two-legged companions. From investing in ground-breaking canine science and research, to funding medical and support dog training programmes and life-saving dog welfare projects, our goal remains the same; to bring cutting-edge technology, compassion and kindness to the space where dogs and people meet.
“The more I see of my fellow man, the more I love my dog. Police dogs, Guide dogs, Rescue dogs, Sniffer dogs, Sheep dogs, Guard dogs, comforters to the sick and bereaved, or simply a friend – we really do owe ALL our dogs.”

We couldn't do what we do without you – Making a difference for dogs
“Dogs bring so much joy to our lives, whether as our friends and companions or by contributing to our well-being such as guide, security and sniffer dogs. In return, it is our responsibility to ensure their health and welfare. From scientific research into their hereditary diseases, to the well-being and recovery of neglected dogs, we’re here to make a difference for all dogs."
Sir John Spurling KCVO OBE, Vice President, The Kennel Club Charitable Trust
