About Us

Helping Dog Paws' mission

We rely on donations
and our volunteers.

Helping Dog Paws is a nonprofitable volunteer charity for dogs based in Lincolnshire.  We are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of dogs and the communities they are a part of. Our mission is to rescue and rehome dogs in need, while also promoting responsible pet ownership, humane treatment, and education about dogs.

Donation operated

100% of your donations go to the dogs care.

Improving lives

We aim to improve the lives of all our mistreated dogs.

Finding loving homes

Giving our dogs the homes for life that they deserve.

We believe that every dog deserves a loving and caring home. Our dedicated team of volunteers and supporters collaborate to provide medical care, a home to feel relaxed in, when some dogs are rescued from challenging situations.


Your support is crucial to our cause. Whether you volunteer your time, donate, or adopt a furry companion, you are helping us make a difference in the lives of dogs and the people who love them. Together, we can create a world where every dog is cherished, cared for, and has the chance to thrive in a loving forever home.

We’re like family.

Our people are the foundation.

Founder & Chairman

To say I am passionate about dogs is an understatement. I have found my job extremely gratifying and there is no greater satisfaction than when a nervous dog blossom into a confident happy dog.
