Blind dog rescue UK

Blind Dog Rescue UK is a small charity committed to rescuing and rehoming blind and partially sighted dogs in the United Kingdom. They collaborate with rescuers across Europe to save dogs, offer emergency veterinary care, and find these abandoned and rescued dogs forever homes in the United Kingdom.

Blind Dog Rescue UK also rescues dogs from within the United Kingdom who have been abandoned by their owners or are facing euthanasia. They frequently witness dogs who are not allowed to demonstrate how amazing blind dogs may be and how regular lives they can have. In these situations, the organisation steps in to assist owners in adjusting to having a blind dog or to guarantee that the dog is surrendered to their care so that they can find them a new home.
