Observer 12 Dogs of Christmas appeal sees three pups rehomed

TAILS were wagging at the Dogs Trust in Kenilworth after the Observer’s 12 Dogs of Christmas campaign resulted in three pups being rehomed.

The Observer featured a different dog each day up to Christmas Eve. All were struggling with life in kennels or had been there a long time.

And staff at the Trust, along with reporters at the paper, were delighted when three of the dogs found new homes.

Six-year-old staffy Lucias, nine-year-old crossbreed Milo and five-year-old collie Ben all met their loving families in time for Christmas.

Rehoming centre manager Emma Healey said: “Christmas is always such a busy time of year for us but it’s always a lovely start to the year when dogs find their forever homes.

“Lucias, Milo and Ben have started the new year as they mean to go on – with a new family who are determined to make 2018 the best year ever for their new pets.”

But there are nine dogs who were not so lucky, and are still waiting in kennels to find their owners.

Charlie, Finn, Butch, Molly, Pete, Polly, Boomer, Denzil and Noddy spent Christmas in kennels, but hope 2018 will be their lucky year.

There are also more than 150 dogs at the centre all in need of a home.
