All Dogs Matter is a no kill shelter that cares for and rescues dogs in need of a second chance. We’ve shown our support for their great work with our #WaggingAtWork campaign, now it’s your chance to support them too. Here’s what they have to say:
We are All Dogs Matter
A dog rescue and rehoming charity based near Highgate, North London, which was set up in 2009. Our aim is to rescue and rehome dogs from all areas in and around Greater London and Norfolk. We work tirelessly with local pounds and kennels to provide either permanent or foster homes for dogs and puppies that are unwanted and abandoned, or for dogs whose owners are no longer able to care for them. We also re-home dogs at ‘death row’ pounds.
Unfortunately there is a growing demand for rescue services in the current climate, as more and more unwanted dogs find themselves in need of a new home. Our job is to pair each dog with the best owner for it; ensuring that it will be safe, cared for and loved for the rest of its life.
Our work is done in three stages
1. Identify and take in dogs who need help
2. Place dogs in foster homes to be assessed, vet checked, microchipped, neutered and vaccinated.
3. Find them their forever home
– Our Way –
We NEVER put down a healthy dog
By ‘healthy’ we mean a dog in good mental and physical health – as we think that if a dog can be rehomed without danger to the public and live a happy, pain-free life, then everything possible should be done to avoid euthanasia.
Each dog we rescue is important to us
From the moment a dog comes into our care we are committed to its welfare and happiness. All of our dogs are veterinary checked, vaccinated, neutered/spayed (depending on the age, sometimes dogs may need to come back at the correct age), microchipped, de-flead and wormed prior to rehoming.
Most of our dogs are placed in foster homes
This is so they can be thoroughly assessed before rehoming. By living with a family, the dog gets used to the everyday routine it will face when rehomed. Our foster carers are experienced dog lovers. They often have dogs of their own and they are dedicated to helping our dogs get back to normal life.
We give our dogs a health check
To make sure that there is no obvious condition which would prevent their rehoming. If a serious health condition is found, we will always let the new owners know before adoption.
We believe in neutering
There are far too many unwanted dogs in the country and giving them a home is more urgent than breeding new puppies, so we neuter all our dogs before rehoming them. That is a non-negotiable condition of adoption with All Dogs Matter.
We microchip all of our dogs
Microchipping is a very quick procedure which saves many dog’s lives every year as a microchipped dog is far more likely to be reunited with its owners if it gets lost or stolen.
We Need Your Support
All Dogs Matter is a registered charity and receives no government funding. As a small office of only four people, we depend on the support of our wonderful volunteers, patrons and trustees! We also greatly appreciate our celebrity supporters who lend their support to our appeals, campaigns and events. At these events, we raise money through our auctions, raffles and competitions to help us continue with the work we do.
