We rescue unwanted


We believe that a temporary foster home is the best place for a dog to be cared for while waiting to be adopted. Our rescued dogs and pups are placed in foster care, in a secure home environment. Through our fosterers we really get to know our dogs and pups and learn which type of home they will be best suited to. So we can help adopters to find the right dog for them.


Find a loving home that will provide temporary shelter


Once the dogs have been cared for and are ready for adoption, we accept applications for them by suitable, pre-vetted owners.


Dogs in Distress is run by volunteers only – so you can be assured that every cent donated goes directly to the dogs’ welfare.
