Our Organization


Helping Dog Paws is a charity that has been set up to provide support when rehoming/fostering dogs.

It also supports owners financially if they need to take dogs to the vets but can’t afford the vet bills, as well as supporting dogs with behavioural issues.

We’re so passionate about what we do, and with your help we can continue to support as many dogs and their owners as possible.
