I know giving up your dog is one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make. By trusting me with their care you’ll have peace of mind that my experienced staff will take care of them until the right home is found.

 What happens once I've decided to give up my dog for re-homing? 

Once I  decide to take your dog on I will ask you to complete the online application to find out everything I need to know about the dog to help me find a suitable home. All my dogs stay in family homes and not kennels. They get plenty of exercise and playtime's, this is a good time to get to know them personally and this then gives me a picture of what type of home would best suit your dog.

What some of my clients say

I wanted to find a home for my Retriever Sammy. I heard about Leics Dogs and decided to give them a call. They gave me peace of mind and were very professional and supportive. They collected Sammy and within a week they found him a really good home with a new family. Sarah from Devon 

I had a 18 month old Yorkie from six weeks old. I decided to relocate to start a new job in Devon, I couldn't take him with me and sadly I decided to find him a new home. I didn't want him to go to just anyone. I wanted what was best for him as he meant the world to me. A friend told me about so I gave them a call. They were very professional and helpful. So I signed over Murphy to them and within a week I received a call just before I was due to leave saying he had been re-homed. I couldn't believe it and was over the moon. Great work guys. Steve, Poole, Dorset

Charity information

There are two types of charity: registered and unregistered.

Charities that receives more than £5,000 a year needs to register with us. But you can still set up a charity if your income will be less than £5,000, so long as it is set up with charitable aims and you can demonstrate public benefit. Find out what this means:

Public benefit – detailed guidance

Charitable aims (purposes) – detailed guidance

All charities need a governing document – a rule book to help them run and stick to their aims. The type of governing document you need depends on the structure of your charity. Many small charities will use a constitution as their governing document.
