Canine free care card scheme - if you pass away before your dog

Last updated: 19/02/2024

Many people worry about what would happen if they were to die before their dog.  Dogs Trust is on hand to ease this worry. The Canine Care Card scheme is a free service that gives you peace of mind, knowing that Dogs Trust will care for your dogs if you pass away before they do.

If you pass away and have registered as a Canine Care Card holder, arrangments will be made to bring your dog or dogs to your nearest Rehoming Centre.

If you decide to become a Canine Care Cardholder, we will issue you with a handy wallet-sized card. It acts in a similar way to an organ donor card and notifies people of your wishes for your dogs, should anything happen to you.
