Dog Rescue Directory – Because Every Dog Deserves A Second Chance

The mission of Dog Rescue Directory is simple – to help local (UK) dog rescues be found and to connect them with those offering forever homes for their dogs. All advertising is therefore FREE – whether you’re looking to list a dog rescue centre, rehome a dog or let people know you’re looking to adopt a rescue dog. Please note that, for this reason, we don’t accept adverts for commercially bred puppies.

Dog Rescue Directory – About Us

​ is the UK’s definitive, independent directory of dog rescue centres throughout Great Britain. Whether you’re listing a national charity or a small, niche or regional rescue or if you’re searching for a list of dog rescues near to you we are, and always will be, COMPLETELY FREE to use.

The site is run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about dog rescue and welfare. All we want is for potential dog adopters to find it easy to find and contact their local rescues and hence be more likely to provide a forever home to a rescue dog. We are not a charity – just people who love dogs and want to help the re-homing process. That’s why listing your organisation is completely free – no strings attached whatsoever.

You may find that your centre has already been listed – if this is the case you will find a “claim listing” button which will enable you to take over the management of your listing and update or edit it in any way you choose.

If you’re looking for a dog to adopt then simply put your postcode into the search box and you’ll be able to see all the centres local to you to make your search easier.

Dog Rescue Directory – Our Mission

Our own experiences have shown us how difficult it can be to find all the dog rescues nearby. Whilst the “big ones” have good websites and effective marketing teams there are many, many smaller places, often one-man bands, who don’t the marketing knowledge or the budget and so, for them it’s often difficult to be found. Many don’t even have a website and rely solely on local word of mouth and social media.

And that’s what we want to change. At everyone gets the same listing for free and it goes by postcode or specific dog breed (if appropriate) meaning that everyone gets found equally.

We’re not looking to profit from the website but do try and cover at least some of our costs through advertising and suchlike. Any support therefore is always greatly appreciated which is why we may soon be offering advertising spaces throughout the website to relevant and reputable UK businesses. Please Contact Us for more details if you’re interested.
