What our members say

“We’ve been borrowing Roxy for about nine months now, and it’s been going really well. Roxy’s reactions are heartwarming - seeing how excited she is and knowing that we can do that for her, and for Lucy and Richard. The biggest benefit is quite simple - it’s just like seeing friends.” Roxy's borrowers, Lucy and Richard

“We joined BorrowMyDoggy because we’ve just had a baby, so we wanted Boris to be socialised with as many people as possible. It gives us less stress because he’s away having fun all day and he comes back knackered.” Boris's owner, Gareth
