What our members say

"When we first met our borrowers, Ollie wagged his tail immediately and hasn't stopped since - I knew straight away that he was going to have a special bond with them. I know I can leave Ollie in the borrowers loving and capable hands, and he will be looked after as if he was their own. BorrowMyDoggy is such a caring community!" - Ollie's owner, Diane.

“I recently retired and was looking for something to keep me active. Signing up to BorrowMyDoggy was the best thing I ever did! I’ve now got four matches - Mac, Oscar, Millie and Rosie & Eddie and I’ve lost a stone from all the walking I’m doing with them! It’s a win-win situation” - Millie and Rosie's borrower, Joanie.
