How will your sponsorship help?

Your valued donations go a long way to look after the dogs at Dogs Trust. Here are some figures to give you an idea of how your sponsorship from this event can help the dogs in our care.

£10 could provide a new training lead for one of our canine residents.

£20 could provide a comfy dog bed for one of our canine residents.

£35.80 could pay for the cost of looking after a dog for a day at a Dogs Trust rehoming centre.

Raise the £150 sponsorship target for this event, and this could help to reduce the number of stray dogs in the community and those facing being put to sleep by running a Dog School training class in your area.
