Meet our sponsor dog, Amelia. She is our permanent resident at Canterbury and she has lots of friends here. She is a Terrier Cross who loves cuddly toys and her bouncy ball. She enjoys being the centre of attention and going for long walks.
If you'd like to sponsor Amelia or see who lives at our other centres, visit Sponsor a Dog.
Canterbury has a team of staff and volunteers who are passionate about our furry friends and are dedicated to Dogs Trust's mission. Roles within the centre range from management and fundraising to canine care, maintenance and reception. Every role is vital to our cause and together we improve the lives and welfare of 500 dogs on average every year. Why not meet the team?
Do you ever wonder who would care for your dog should something happen to you?
Our Supporter Relations Officer, Lara Murphy, can let you know about our free Canine Care Card Scheme, to make sure your four-legged friend’s future is safe.
She can also help with information about leaving a gift in your will or donating in memory of a loved one.
Lara is here to spread the word about the work we do at Dogs Trust. She is very happy to come out and talk to groups or can arrange a tour and talk at the newly refurbished rehoming centre.
She also runs some local fundraising events for Dogs Trust Canterbury.
Contact Lara on 01227 792898 or email Lara.Murphy@dogstrust.org.uk

About Our Charity Shop
We have a charity shop in Herne Bay which helps to raise vital funds for our centre. The shop was kindly donated to Dogs Trust in 2001 and we have a dedicated team of volunteers who have been with us since its opening. We are also able to promote the local Canterbury centre at our charity shop.
If you are interested in the rehoming process and are keen to adopt your own furry friend from us please pop into the centre or call us on 01227 792505.
If adopting a furry friend from us isn't an option, there are plenty of other things you can do to help.
