Protect a Pup is a voluntary run group with charitable aims. Our sole goal is to prevent the death of abandoned dogs. Local authorities in the UK killed an estimated 7,805 homeless dogs from 1 April 2013 to the 31st of March 2014 (Dogs Trust Stray Dog Survey 2014).
Protect a Pup aims to reduce this number by offering free neutering and spaying and education initiatives.
A total of 110,675 dogs were handled by local authorities last year, 7% of this figure being killed; Protect a Pup believes this is completely unacceptable (sign the petition here). 26% of these dogs were passed onto animal welfare organisations – all of which rely on donations to run. 49,964 were reunited with their owners, 10,084 because of a microchip.
Protect a Pup wants to see more dogs reunited with owners; we provide free microchipping.
Protect a Pup is concerned that due to the harsh economic climate that even more dogs will be left without a home. We aim to provide free advice, free food, free bowls, free collars, leads and education via our Dog Food Banks.
