• Helping to Save Stray Dogs

    Animal Lifeline UK works on behalf of pounds throughout the UK to secure rescue placements for stray dogs.

    Pound dogs have seven days to be reclaimed by their owners. If not reclaimed then on the eighth day the dogs are often euthanised.

    Animal Lifeline UK not only secures rescue placements for these dogs, we also find volunteers to help transport them and raise funds towards the cost of transport and emergency boarding if needed.

    Every year ALUK helps hundreds of pound dogs to find those all-important rescue spaces to give them the opportunity to find a new, loving home.

    "I have been a dog warden/animal welfare officer for over 18 years, and in the last 18 months we have seen a huge increase in the number of strays we are picking up, and the volume of Staffordshire bull terriers (SBT’s) has risen to an overwhelming amount.

    Without Kelly Joy and the volunteers and helpers of Animal Lifeline UK I really don’t want to think about what the ending for some of our strays would have been.

    They put their heart and soul into finding and securing a rescue place for our stray, abandoned dogs, and organising transportation runs to move the dog to the said rescue place; all of which takes huge amounts of time and patience on their behalf, and with time constraints as well, because of due dates for Put To Sleep (PTS).

    They are guardian angels to ‘pound’ and ‘death row’ dogs, and I wouldn’t be able to do my job without their help and support.

    They save thousands of stray dogs a year and place numerous amounts of SBT’s, which is no mean feat to achieve.
