CP also provide an array of cat care information via their publications, website and Helpline; promotion of the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming abandoned cats and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.
Dogs Trust is the UK's largest dog welfare charity. The charity rehabilitates and finds new homes for dogs which have been abandoned or given up by their owners. They have a network of Rehoming Centres across the UK and Ireland. People are encouraged to sponsor a dog for at least £1 a week, even if they are not able to rehome the dog.
For the dogs that have had a particularly bad start in life and would not be happy living in a normal home environment, the charity takes care of these dogs with funds from the dog sponsorship. They have also created a sanctuary where selected dogs can live together free from excessive human contact.
It also runs microchipping and neutering schemes in the United Kingdom and abroad, in order to reduce the number of unwanted litters of puppies and stray dogs put to sleep by other organisations.
The charity is best known for its slogan "A Dog is for Life, not just for Christmas", which is used either in full or shortened to "A Dog is for Life" in advertising. The phrase was created to reduce the number of dogs which are abandoned as unwanted.
Dogs Trust also also actively campaign to protect dogs from cruelty including: docking of tails and unecessary euthanasia
