About Paw Help UK

“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”

~ Karen Davison

Paw Help UK is a fully established foster-based rescue run entirely by volunteers. We do not have shelters or kennels; instead, all our UK-based rescue dogs are placed with foster families across England. For dogs arriving from abroad, we seek either straight forever homes or foster placements for additional assessment

Our journey began with a simple dream: to make a difference in the lives of dogs in need (see Our Story). What started as a desire to rehome dogs has grown into a full-scale rescue, dedicated to saving and rehoming dogs.

We help abandoned and surrendered dogs in the UK find their new forever homes after they are fully treated (often coming in a very poor condition), vaccinated, and neutered when applicable.

Also Paw Help UK is the only British Rescue, who rehome dogs from Ukraine and Belarus (the formalities to bring dogs from those countries are so complicated, that there are no other charities ready to get themselves into it).

Paw Help UK is run by dedicated dog-lovers and enthusiastic volunteers who generously donate their time. It’s not a paid job for them, so you can be sure that each penny you pay as an adoption fee goes directly to support dogs in need. The organization operates without any state or other funding, relying solely on the adoption fees and public donations to continue our mission of rescuing and rehoming dogs in need.

Our mission is clear: to help as many dogs in need as possible and to find reliable forever homes for rescue pets, regardless of their age, health, temperament, breed, or history.

All dogs coming from Paw Help UK are fully vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed/neutered (subject to age and medical conditions). Before trip all dogs are C.Brucella tested , owners will receive a licensed laboratory test certificate along with other documents. 

Paw Help UK provides lifelong Rescue Backup (RBU) and full post-adoption support and advice.

Our work is not just about saving individual dogs; it’s about contributing to a more compassionate and responsible approach to animal welfare. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of dogs in need.

Join us on our mission to save lives and create a world where every dog has a loving home.
