We all have our favourite rescue societies and we all are aiming for the same thing. No cruelty to animals.
A handy reference point for good people doing great work. We'd love to see this section grow and grow. Below are a selection of charities that rely on us for their support. If you know any other charity that we haven't featured below please email us.
"Get your paws on a great home"
The Animal Welfare Act 2006 came into force in England in April 2007. People are legally obliged to ensure the welfare of the animals in their care, under the ‘Duty of Care’. The Act was introduced to reduce animal suffering by enabling preventive action to be taken by those responsible for the enforcement of welfare laws i.e. before any suffering actually occurs. A responsible person commits an offence if they do not take steps to ensure that the needs of an animal for which they are responsible are met.
This includes considering on behalf of the animal:
- Its need for a suitable environment.
- Its need for a suitable diet.
- Its need to be able to exhibit normal behaviour patterns.
- Any need it has to be housed with, or apart from, other animals.
- Its need to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease.

About Dogs Trust
Founded in 1891, Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Their mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.
We are the only official Bulldog Rescue and Re-homing service for Great Britain. Co-ordinated from West Sussex, we cover the entire mainland UK on a network of foster homes and volunteers, making sure that when a bulldog needs to find a new home we are there to ensure his new home is exactly the right home for him. Please browse around this web site to find out more about the bulldog breed and the breed rescue.
Each year we re-home and rescue many pugs, often from pretty dire circumstances. Some of their stories are told on this site. We welcome any support from dog lovers everywhere. You can support us in many ways - why not become a member as a Friend of The PDWRA Network, or make a donation, you can also raise funds for the Association, we are a registered charity, and all our officers and trustees donate their time and efforts freely.
We are the animal emergency service. At all times, in all weather, we're out there rescuing dogs and other animals. Concerned about the welfare of an animal? Contact us 24 hours a day. Our dedicated veterinary staff help as many dogs in need as possible.
PDSA is the UK's leading veterinary charity, caring for more than 350,000 pet patients belonging to people in need.
About The French Bulldog Welfare Trust
The Trust became a registered charity in 1983 and is administered by a committee of five Trustees who run the day to day business of the charity with the help of our coordinators and other volunteers who have been helping with, fostering, doing home visits, transportation, making phone calls, putting together seminars, raising money and much more for over 30 years.
The aims of the Trust are the care and protection of French Bulldogs which are in need of such care and attention by reason of sickness, maltreatment or poor circumstances.
In furtherance of these aims the Trust:
- Will help in finding permanent homes for unwanted or abandoned Frenchies.
- Provide direct help and advice for those Frenchie owners seeking veterinary treatment.
- Educating the public in responsibilities of buying and owning a French Bulldog.
- Promoting the benefits and responsibilities of Frenchie ownership.
The FBWT relies completely on the donations that it receives. All monies received are used solely for the betterment of the Frenchies in need that are brought to the attention of the Trust.
