HOMELESS dogs are hoping to find somewhere to put their paws up this Christmas.
After the success of the Observer and Dogs Trust’s 12 Dogs of Christmas appeal in recent years – we are again appealing to readers to find a place in their hearts and homes for a four-legged friend.
Some of the dogs looking for a place of their own have been at the Kenilworth branch of Dogs Trust for years.
Centre manager Emma Healey said she is hoping people will open up their hearts and homes while remembering the charity’s slogan ‘A Dog is for Life, not just for Christmas.’
She said: “These dogs each have differing looks, personalities and needs but each one will make a wonderful addition to a loving new home so we are appealing for anyone who would like to rehome one of these deserving dogs to please get in touch.
“A dog can be such a rewarding addition to any family, but they do come with long-term responsibilities that will have a lasting impact on their new owner’s life.
“We would encourage anyone who believes a dog is for life and wants to welcome a four-legged friend into their lives in 2020 to visit us and give a dog a second chance to have the wonderful life all dogs deserve. We have plenty of dogs all looking for their special someone.”
Greyhound Dash is a shy boy who finds new situations a little bit scary. The six-year-old, who has been at Dogs Trust for a year, is looking for a very quiet home with new owners who will take their time getting to know him. He would like a secure garden where he can explore at his own pace until he comes out of his shell. He’d like his new family to come and meet him several times to get to know him before taking him now. He needs to be the only dog and could live with older teenagers.
