Why not help one of our dogs that requires special ongoing care and treatment? Dog sponsorship ensures that all our dogs receive the care and attention they require. From as little as £1 per week you can help these dogs lead a happy, comfortable life in a secure home.
It could not be simpler, just click on the dog you would like to sponsor, below, and then download, complete and return your sponsorship application form.
Please help us to help a dog in need - we now have special dogs who require our ongoing support and we need your help to care for them.
Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre cares for and rehomes over 300 stray and unwanted dogs each year. Some of them have conditions that make it difficult for them to find permanent homes, either because they are very elderly and infirm or because their need for ongoing and expensive medication proves a deterrent for many adopters.
Sponsoring a dog means these dogs can be placed in a happy, stable, home and receive the support and comfort they need.
From as little as £1 a week you could help one of these dogs and have a friend for life. It costs us over £260 to rehome a dog on average, but include the old age pensioners and medically challenged dogs for whom we have ongoing financial responsibility and the figure is much, much higher. With no government funding we rely heavily on the generosity of people. By sponsoring a dog you will help ensure they receive the best possible care they can.
When you sponsor a dog you will receive regular news on your dog, a personalised certificate, photo of your pet and quarterly magazine with events and news on what is happening at the kennels. You can also sponsor a dog as a gift for a friend!
The following dogs are currently available for sponsorship. When you have selected a dog, simply download and complete our Dog Sponsorship form:

Your sponsorship money will be used to help provide veterinary care (including specialist diets) for your sponsor dog and others in our care.
No, these dogs need all the sponsors they can get to ensure they get the care they need.
Your sponsor dog will send you updates three times a year and you will also receive our quarterly newsletter which includes information of new dogs in the kennels and forthcoming events.
All the sponsor dogs will be attending events on behalf of the centre and this is where you'll get a chance to come and meet your dog. We want to ensure these dogs lead happy, normal lives in a secure home, so will not be available for a visit on the spur of the moment.
