Support Dogs is a registered national charity dedicated to increasing independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions. We provide, train and support specialist assistance dogs to achieve this.
We specialise in three specific programmes:
Autism assistance dogs for children with autism. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments.
Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. Our dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, up to 50 minute warning prior to the onset of an epileptic seizure. This enables the client to find safety and be in control over their seizure, allowing a much more independent life.
Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. The client’s own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs; providing them with greater independence and safety.
Established in 1992 Support Dogs works across England, Scotland and Wales and provides all it services entirely free of charge to those in need of them. However the charity relies solely on voluntary donations and receives no government funding.
Support Dogs are one of the founder members of Assistance Dogs UK. ADUK provides a kite-mark of excellence in assistance dog training. All ADUK dogs adhere to the highest training and welfare standards as set out by Assistance Dogs International and the International Guide Dogs Federation.
The RSPB is the country’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. Together with our partners, we protect threatened birds and wildlife so our towns, coast and countryside will teem with life once again. We also play a leading role in a worldwide partnership of nature conservation organisations.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.
PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.
PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
IFAW fights for animals through direct rescues, by funding protected habitats, by working closely with decision-makers who have the power to end animal cruelty and through public education programmes. All gifts to IFAW are used to enable the organisation to achieve its mission. Donations will be used where they are most needed.
The RSPCA is the world’s oldest animal welfare charity. Our aims are to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals.
With 328 Inspectors, 146 Animal Collection Officers and specialist staff at animal hospitals, centres and clinics throughout England and Wales we work around the clock to help animals in need. Thanks to the RSPCA more than 100,000 animals are re-homed and more than 30,000 animal cruelty complaints are investigated every year.

No animal should suffer from injury, disease, abuse, or neglect. With your help, we can end the suffering of cats, dogs, donkeys, and horses. Help FOUR charities with ONE donation – and save THOUSANDS of animals’ lives
Together for Animals raises much needed funds for its four member charities – Blue Cross, Mayhew, SPANA, and World Horse Welfare. Animals contribute so much to our mental and physical wellbeing – by working together we are ensuring that they can enjoy happier, healthier lives. Because of the kind support and donations Together for Animals receives, we can help change the lives of cats, dogs, donkeys, and horses by:
· Fighting to ensure animals are treated with the respect and kindness they deserve.
· Finding happy homes for abandoned or unwanted pets and horses.
· Campaigning for animal welfare.
· Providing free veterinary care for working animals in the world’s poorest communities.
£5 a month could help to feed an animal while they wait to find their forever home.
£10 a month could help us save abandoned and abused animals.
£15 a month could help provide urgent veterinary care to a sick animal.
Together we can ensure that animals have happier, healthier lives. Help us save animals from disease, neglect, and abuse.
