Covid-19 update April 2021: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public for general browsing. We’re still rehoming virtually and we’re here to help if you can no longer care for your dog. Please don’t visit, or travel to our centres unless you have already been matched with a dog, or are leaving donations at one of our contact-free drop off points.

Win a Shark vacuum cleaner!

With brighter days ahead and a new season just around the corner, it’s time to get ready for a spring clean!

It's important that our pups learn that the sight, sound and smell of the vacuum cleaner being used isn't scary, because it's something they're probably going to be experiencing a lot of.

It's worth taking a little time to help your dog out by introducing the vacuum cleaner gently. Dogs aren't necessarily able to understand that vacuums keep our homes clean and might find them exciting or scary due to noise, vibration and movement! Check out our tips for introducing the vacuum cleaner to your dog.

To help us freshen up our homes and say goodbye to the endless dog hairs, our partners Shark are giving you the chance to win a TruePet vacuum cleaner!

To enter, send us a photo of your dog enjoying the springtime to [email protected] with the subject header ‘Springtime with Shark’.

The closing date for the competition is 2nd April 2021 at 5pm. Full T&C can be found here.

A massive thank you to Shark for committing to donate £50,000 each to both us and Cats Protection during the second year of our partnership to support our work.
