Each year, around 2000 stray dogs are destroyed in the UK. They die afraid and alone - unclaimed strays, tossed aside like unwanted toys.

When a dog is picked up stray, local authority are legally obliged to keep the dog for just 7 days. Unless a rescue intervenes, dogs which remain unclaimed after this time are too often destroyed.
