Dogs Trust Freedom Project

Operating across Bedfordshire, we know that owning a pet can often be a barrier to someone fleeing domestic abuse and accessing refuge/emergency accommodation, so we offer free dog fostering until they are able to be reunited with their pet. The Freedom Project is a specialist, confidential service and we are a female only team. This service is free to access, Dogs Trust covers the cost of veterinary treatment, food and any equipment that the dog may need whilst they are in foster care. We are able to offer fostering placements for 6-9 months and hope that we can reunite pets with their owners within this time. Dogs are placed directly into volunteer foster homes with experienced volunteer foster carers, who provide them with lots of love and care until they can reunited with their owner.
