Dogs Trust-Hope Project During Covid

Since the UK first went into lockdown in March, rough sleepers and other people experiencing homelessness have been accommodated in hotels and emergency housing so they can adhere to Government guidance on isolation and hygiene. However, many of these accommodations are unable to accept dogs. For homeless dog-owners, their dog is their main companion, so they’re unlikely to move into alternative accommodation if this means giving up their beloved pet.

Our Hope Project has continued to operate throughout lockdown. And we’ve adapted our Welcoming Dogs scheme to make sure we can provide ongoing support and guidance to hotels and homelessness services on accepting and managing dogs.

For more information or to contact the Hope Project team directly, please visit or email 


We can offer: 

  • Tailored advice, by telephone or video call, about accepting and managing dogs. 
  • Emergency dog food and essential items like collars, leads, toys and bedding, which can be delivered directly to you. 
  • Free emergency vet care for any dogs should they become unwell, as well as transportation to the vet practice 
  • Temporary private boarding for dogs belonging to homeless people if they need to access hospital treatment.
