Happier dogs help make the world a happier place.
We’re on a mission to improve the lives of dogs across the United States – and around the world.
As Dogs Trust USA, we draw on a long history of dog expertise – We’re the sister organization of Dogs Trust – the UK’s leading dog welfare charity which was founded over 127 years ago.
Although we draw much of our expertise and experience from Dogs Trust in the UK, Dogs Trust USA is a separate non-profit entity, which aims to help as many dogs as possible in the United States though our grants program, to find loving homes, and to live happy and healthy lives, while also working closely with dog welfare organizations around the world to help dogs who are being exploited or suffering harm, and to transform the way people think about dogs around the world.
We are a registered 501(c)(3), and as such any gifts are tax deductible in accordance with IRS rules and regulations. Our EIN number is: 82-2390086.
MEET THE BOARD
Veronica has been a trustee of Dogs Trust since 2008. She has been a tireless campaigner for the organization and is often found surrounded by her four-legged friends.
It is with great sadness that we can confirm that our much loved President, Adrian Burder, has died unexpectedly following a short illness. Our thoughts are with his family at this most difficult time.
“Adrian was one of a kind - his passion for animal welfare changed the lives of millions of dogs in the 24 years he was at Dogs Trust. He will be terribly missed by staff, trustees and volunteers past and present and we are so grateful for his immeasurable contribution to making the world a better place for man’s best friend.
“We are all still letting this tragic news sink in. Adrian has been an integral part of our charity for so many years, as a hugely successful fundraiser and then as CEO since 2014. Adrian is Dogs Trust and we will continue our work in his memory.”
- Jim Monteith, Secretary of Dogs Trust USA .
