Who we are

DogsnHomes is a dog rescue and rehoming charity, based in Fleet, Hampshire, UK.
Our mission is simple. To rescue unwanted dogs from Portugal and the UK and find them their forever homes in Hampshire and surrounding counties.

Our approach is unique. We understand that welcoming a new dog into your family is a huge commitment, so we take the necessary time to get to know you, your needs, abilities and any restrictions and do our best to try to match you to dogs looking for homes. We rescue mostly puppies and young adult dogs that are happy, healthy and sociable.

Please take a look around our website to find out more, including how you can support our work under ‘Support Us’, and register to adopt by completing an adoption form under ‘Adopt a dog’.

Thank you for your interest in rescue and looking to adopt not shop!

Tim Peake - Our Patron

British Astronaut, Tim Peake, agreed to become a patron for DogsnHomes in November 2019 after rescuing one of our amazing dogs, Woody. Obviously, we were over the moon then, and we’ve been on cloud 9 ever since!

Tim and his family continue to support us and our endeavours and for that we are extremely grateful. He has posted about our work on his social media channels, has donated several signed books for us to auction, has raised awareness of our Ukraine Aid mission, and has invited us to his speaking events so that we can raise money and awareness of our charity.

We absolutely love having Tim and his family on board, and with their continued involvement we are sure we will be going stratospheric! They are fantastic advocates of the ‘adopt don’t shop’ message that we try so hard to convey, and their rescue dog has become quite the poster boy.

We couldn’t be prouder to have Tim on board, and we look forward to working with him even more closely in the future.
