Welcome to Paw Help UK
“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”

Who We Are
PAW HELP UK is fully established rescue. We work in cooperation with rescues from the most difficult to help countries, such as Ukraine and Belarus.
We are not a registered charity yet, but all our work is charitable and run by volunteers in non-paid positions. Paw Help UK does not rescue dogs itself but carries out the most important, responsible and most pleasant final part of any rescuing: rehoming.
Our Paw Help UK mission is to find forever homes for rescue pets of all ages, health, temperaments, and history.
Adopt a Dog
Most of the dogs offered by PAWs are ex-home dogs that have been abandoned by humans. There are also puppies born as stray dogs from previously abounded ex-home dogs. We do not offer half-wild or aggressive stray dogs. Some dogs can be fearful due to their sad past experience with humans or if puppies, are not socialized enough. All PAWs rescue partners are foster-based, and all dogs spend no less than 2 months with a foster before coming to the UK (often it is more than 4-5 months, especially for Ukraine). All dogs arrive fully vaccinated and microchipped. All adult dogs (above 10-12 months) are neutered (with the exception if under medical or force-major conditions). Paw Help UK provides livelong RBU (Rescue Back Up) and full post-adoption support and advice.
The dream to found a rescue and try to find forever homes and loving families in the UK for homeless dogs from Ukraine was born in 2019.
It took a long time until that dream started to come true, a lot of difficulties and obstacles had to be overcome, but hundreds of happy dogs say now it was worth all the effort.
Foster & Save Lives
Not ready to adopt a dog? You can apply for fostering. Foster parents are a critical part of our rescue. Since we have no facilities/boarding kennels in the UK, we rely on dedicated foster families to provide dogs with a temporary home before they get adopted.
FOSTER A PET, be the bridge between homeless and home, save a life (or more!).
