Information about Dalmatian Welfare


We have been involved with helping and supporting our spotty friends from the time when Dalmatians first chose to live with us. We are happy to help anyone who wants to talk about Dalmatians - their care, their behaviour, their needs, how to integrate them into your family and things you can do if you are finding any of these challenges too tough to handle.

There are 3 Dalmatian Clubs in the UK and each of these has a Dalmatian Welfare Service run by dedicated volunteers who work day and night to help Dalmatians in their hour of need. Please visit and support their sites...


British Dalmatian Club Welfare Service

Website -


The British Dalmatian Welfare is a Registered Charity and their aim is to help, support, offer advice, and in some cases re-home Dalmatians whatever their background or breeding. They are the contact for local authorities for stray Dalmatians and they liaise with other dog rescue charities with a Dalmatian on their books. Occasionally they have to rescue Dalmatians being kept in very poor conditions - these Dalmatians often need considerable care before they can re-home them. In addition to finding permanent new homes for Dalmatians they also use foster homes. This is usually for urgent short term needs such as an owner going into hospital or losing their home. Many of these dogs are older and may require veterinary treatment before they can re-home them permanently. They get help from British Dalmatian Club members and friends nationwide and if you could look after a Dalmatian short term, perhaps as a companion to your existing dog, please contact them or ring the adoption line on 07976 360468 or to discuss re-homing your Dalmatian or any other enquiry call 07905 495084.
