About Us

We rescue and re-home dogs across the UK, primarily helping 'death row' dogs in council pounds who would be euthanised without our assistance.

Founded in 2009, South East Dog Rescue is a true 'no-kill' rescue and rehoming centre based in Maidstone, Kent.

We rescue and re-home dogs across the UK, primarily helping 'death row' dogs in council pounds who would be euthanised without our assistance. We also help members of the general public to re-home their dogs when their circumstances change. Over the years, we have gained a reputation for helping some of the most abused, starved and neglected welfare cases in the UK. We are regularly called upon to help such vulnerable dogs. 

Our Mission

To give a second chance to abandoned, neglected and unwanted dogs and to find them loving, furever homes. Some of the dogs that come to us cannot cope in a 'traditional' home environment and are given sanctuary at the centre for the remainder of their lives.

What we do

Run entirely by volunteers, SEDR ensures that dogs are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before being placed into furever homes. All dogs have rescue back up from SEDR for the remainder of their lives.

SEDR is a non-profit organisation and relies solely on donations and receives no government funding.
