The plight of homeless dogs in the UK has never been so grim...


Hundreds of beautiful dogs are being killed by local authorities up and down the country on a weekly basis...Why?

Because of the enormous increase of unwanted dogs and limited spaces available in rescue centres.

Unfortunately until the government puts legislation in place to prevent so much indiscriminate breeding the population of man's best friend will keep increasing and this already unmanageable problem will get much much worse.

We need your help to make a difference...

we can at least help some of these dogs that have nowhere to go and would otherwise face certain death.

With the help of other organisation such as Dog Watch UK, we take dogs off death row and give them a safe place to stay until a suitable home can be found.

We also help owners who, through no fault of their own can no longer look after their dogs so need help finding them new homes.




Making a new life for young and old dogs!

What you, the public say about Mutts with Friends...


The satisfaction gained from adopting Jasper cannot be really put into words.  We have given him a loving home and know that in doing so we have given him a life he can enjoy.  Mutts with Friends did a wonderful job of rehabilitating him, considering the abuse he had suffered, and we have appreciated their support over the past year. 

I really enjoy the events that Mutts with Friends organise, it’s always very family orientated, so we can all go and enjoy ourselves, with the added bonus that we are helping out with the vet bills!

I bought a handmade wreath last Christmas from Mutts with Friends and had so many lovely comments, that my neighbours have all placed orders – and I’m going along to help make them this year.
