Helping dog owners find freedom from domestic abuse

Support for your dog

We're here for you and your dog when you need us

As many refuges aren’t able to accept pets, we understand that you might feel unable to leave your home until you know your dog is somewhere safe too. We place your dog with a loving foster carer for an average of 6-9 months, so you can access a refuge or emergency housing, knowing your dog will be cared for until you're ready to have them back with you.

Help a dog, help a whole family

Our amazing foster carers are a key part of the Freedom team, and our service wouldn't be possible without people like you. If you have experience caring for dogs, are at home most of the day and can commit to fostering for up to six months, we'd love to hear from you.

Domestic abuse support services

If you work for a support service such as a domestic abuse organisation or the police, Freedom can help you ensure a family's pets will be safe too. Support workers can refer people directly to Freedom, and we'll be on hand to answer any questions you or they might have.
