Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, is delighted to announce that because of the generosity of players of People’s Postcode Lottery they have been able to add an extra member of staff to the dedicated teams at each and every one of its 20 rehoming centres across the UK.
From Devon to Darlington and Greater London to Glasgow, all of Dogs Trust’s rehoming centres have been bolstered by one new team member. With the extra pair of hands to help there are now even more cuddles and tummy rubs for all the homeless hounds waiting to find their forever home.
Says Giles Webber, Dogs Trust Operations Director:
“We’re so grateful to each and every player of People’s Postcode Lottery for helping us grow our teams. These funds have helped to provide even more love and care for all of the dogs that we help on their journey to finding new homes. Some of the dogs that we see really benefit from the extra cuddles and one-to-one time that we can give them and on behalf of them we’d like to say a big thank you!”
Clara Govier, head of charities at People's Postcode Lottery says:
“Seeing the care that Dogs Trust puts into looking after and rehabilitating dogs is inspiring. Players of People’s Postcode Lottery will be delighted to know the money they have raised is improving the quality of life of dogs in the charity’s care.”
Dogs Trust cares for over 17,000 dogs a year and has around 1,600 dogs at its rehoming centres at any one time. If you think your special someone is out there, click here!
