Our Continued Support for DOTS (Dogs on the Streets)

We are delighted we were able to make another donation of dog bowls, dog food (wet, dry and senior) and dental chews to DOTS (Dogs on the Streets) last week with funds raised from the sale of Sharing Our Horizon during the 2020-2021 tax year.

DOTS is a Multi Award Winning Charity dedicated to the welfare of dogs belonging to the UK’s homeless community. They operate weekly in London as well as running regular services in Birmingham, Kent, Milton Keynes, Oxford and Taunton with a view to expand even further.

With a fully equipped mobile veterinary surgery vehicle allowing ease of access to dogs in need, DOTS ensures all the essential items and services are provided for free each and every week. From food provisions to new harnesses and leads plus training and grooming sessions.

Working tirelessly, DOTS aim is to find permanent accommodation for rough sleepers and regularly represents clients and their dogs with services/ borough councils. Many refuse housing when offered simply because it is not dog friendly. This has been a major challenge during the Covid-19 pandemic and DOTS has been able to foster dogs for the homeless in their sanctuary until suitable accommodation can be found where they can be reunited with their owner.

When an owner is no longer able to care for their dog through ill health or other circumstances, DOTS will find a suitable new home for the dog and can offer peace of mind that their beloved companion will be cared for.

If you want to support DOTS directly please visit their website where you can find out how to make a difference.
