We are an independent, non-profit charity relying entirely on the generous donations of our supporters and volunteers. We are not affiliated with, nor receive any funding from the racing industry, so every penny really does count!

Without your help we wouldn’t be able to carry out our lifesaving work. Please see below for how you can support our charity and help us continue to rescue and rehome these wonderful dogs.
