Our Adoption Work

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.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Wild at Heart to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Wild at Heart we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Wild at Heart to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Wild at Heart will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Wild at Heart receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
