With an estimated 600 million stray dogs worldwide, it would be unrealistic to believe that rehoming alone can solve this growing problem. Around 1.2 million puppies are born every single day* – a number that far exceeds demand from potential adopters. Which is why we’re committed to funding sterilisation initiatives, along with education and welfare programmes which can prevent the problem from growing any further.
*Tragically, around 80% of these puppies will die before reaching adolescence – a brutal indicator of just how harsh life on the streets is.
But for those dogs already battling against starvation and neglect, rehoming provides the only hope of a safe future. Every dog deserves shelter, food and security – but the gift of a home where they can be loved and treated to the care and attention that all dogs need, is incomparable.
Our adoption work between 2015 – 2022 saw us find homes for 2,026 dogs, enabling them to thrive rather than just survive. Originating from 14 countries across Europe and Asia, from Lesvos to Lebanon, Bulgaria to Bahrain; puppies, adult, elderly and less able dogs have all been given the opportunity to live the lives they deserved from the outset.
