Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

Fundraising raffles

Congratulations to all our winners of the Dogs Trust Winter Raffle!

 

The big draw took place on 10th February 2021

THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts and paws, to everyone who played or donated towards our Winter Raffle.

After such a difficult and turbulent year, we knew this one had to be our biggest ever to help more dogs like Milo, who still need our help despite the pandemic happening around us.

If you didn’t get a chance to play this time around, or want another shot at winning one of seven cash prizes, then we have great news!

Our Spring Raffle will be launching soon, please continue to check this page for further updates.

When a Husky rescue centre had to close last year due to the pandemic, we took Milo in. We’ll continue to give him essential training and support until he’s ready for a forever home.

Here are our pawsome winners:
