Sponsor a Dog
The Dog Trouble Foundation Sponsorship Scheme is a way for you to help support our work by sponsoring one of our rescued dogs. Our sponsor dogs are dogs that are difficult to rehome because of physical or behaviour issues. If we can't find that special home for them they'll live at the rescue for the rest of their lives in a supported and secure environment, and enjoy all the benefits of being a member of the Foundation Pack.
Sponsoring a dog is an ideal gift... or maybe a special treat for yourself! If you can’t have a dog, or you want to support our rescue, sponsoring a dog is an ideal way for you to bond with a special dog and share their life in the Foundation Pack and also help with the costs of caring for your chosen dog.
You can sponsor a dog just for a year or make it a regular annual donation - the default on the application form is set to "Annually" so make sure to click the "One-time" box if you prefer to sponsor for just one year. Our suggested minimum donation for sponsor dogs is £25 per year, but if you can afford more this is very welcome and very much appreciated. See "How the Sponsorship Scheme Works" and the FAQs below for more information.
If you would like to Sponsor one of our dogs, please complete our Sponsor a Dog Application Form. Thank you!

How the Sponsorship Scheme Works
Your Sponsor Dog Welcome Pack includes a Certificate and picture of the dog you are sponsoring. We'll keep you updated on what they have been getting up to with the rest of the Foundation Pack and the team of Dog Trouble carers who look after them.
Annual or One-off Sponsorship
You can sponsor a dog just for a year or make it a regular annual donation. Our suggested minimum donation for sponsor dogs is £20 per year, but if you can afford more this is very welcome and very much appreciated. Sponsorship money helps pay for the care of your sponsored dog including their food, any supplements or preventive medicine they may need, day-to-day care, veterinary treatment, bedding, treats and toys.

Frequently asked questions
Can I sponsor more than one dog?
Yes. You can sponsor as many dogs as you wish. Just complete a separate Application Form for each dog.
How will my donation be used?
Your donation helps pay for the day-to-day care that your sponsored dog receives, including everything from nutritious food, supplements, treats and toys to veterinary care and, if required, life-saving surgery.
Will I be the only sponsor?
Our sponsored dogs are supported by a number of sponsors. We simply couldn’t provide all the food, warmth and expert care that the dogs need without the support of these sponsors.
Can I visit my sponsored dog?
Unfortunately it's not currently possible to visit your sponsored dog.
Are my donations eligible for Gift Aid?
Dog Trouble Foundation is not currently eligible to claim Gift Aid. We are a small charity and we don't currently meet the criteria of £5,000 annual income in order to register with the Charity Commission. Although we benefit from being a registered Community Interest Company, because we are not a registered charity we are not eligible to claim Gift Aid. We hope in the future, as we grow, to register as a charity at which point we will be able to include Gift Aid.
