Small Grants (Worldwide)

Dogs Trust Worldwide understands the scale of suffering faced by dogs all around the world, and we aim to support local organisations, who share our vision and values, to help improve the lives and welfare of dogs worldwide.  

In Europe we will help organisations via our European Champions Fund, but we know that there are dogs which need our help across the globe, and through our Worldwide Champions Fund, we will support organisations around the rest of the world, to increase their capacity to help improve the lives of the dogs under their care and within their community.  

India, Sri Lanka and Thailand are key countries of focus for Dogs Trust Worldwide, for which we deliver separate programmes, so organisations from those countries who would like to work with us should visit the India and Sri Lanka and Thailand pages on our website and contact us at  

We are unable to support organisations in the UK and the Republic of Ireland where Dogs Trust has its own programmes, while organisations from the USA should refer to the Dogs Trust USA website for grants available to support work in the United States:
