What Drives Us

About Us

Drone To Home was created out of an necessity to help more people find their beloved dogs. At the start it was just Phil and his drone searching areas that the owners had told him the dog had been last sighted. As he began finding more and more missing dogs word soon spread that his skills and experience in reuniting missing dogs was a much needed peace of mind for thousands of people in the community.

As 2021 went by it became clear Phil required help so he created a Whatsapp group where volunteers could join and help him if they could spare the time. Drone To Home now have thousands of volunteers who help share content on social media and assist on ground searchers as and when required.

The charity is proud to announce our first female drone operator who is currently trained to fly. Ladies make up only 4% of drone operators in the UK and Drone To Home aim to change that.

The future for Drone To Home is a positive one and we are building a strong foundation combined with an excellent reputation. We have reunited over 2200 dogs to date and this figure climbs daily.




To promote humane behaviour towards animals and livestock throughout the United Kingdom by providing appropriate care for domestic or farm animals which are missing or have strayed from their homes and are therefore suffering and in distress by providing and co-ordinating search and rescue operations and through providing education to domestic animal owners.
