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 an 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 receive more than £5,000 a year need 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.
