Jodie has a Happy Home All Wrapped Up
Furry-tail ending at Dogs Trust Canterbury
Every rescue dog deserves a second chance at happiness and none more so than Jodie, a retired Greyhound who has touched the hearts of everyone she has met on the road to her new home.
Nine-year-old Jodie was brought into Dogs Trust Canterbury through Dogs Trust’s Canine Card Card scheme when her owner sadly passed away this month. Before being collected by Dogs Trust, she was looked after by her neighbour who adored Jodie but was unable to keep her as unfortunately her cats were not as keen on Jodie.
Although her neighbour couldn’t give Jodie a home, she wanted to do something special for her new-found friend so rallied a group of local people to help finish a blanket that her owner had begun knitting for her before she passed away. Jodie and her very special blanket have now made their way to a loving new home but she will always be remembered by the people whose lives she touched along the way.
Adam Levy, Manager at Dogs Trust Canterbury comments,
“Jodie is an adorable girl with so much love to give, so it is no surprise that she has found a happy new home so quickly. Whilst she has been through a tough time, Jodie has kept her tail wagging and has won the hearts of everyone she has met. Thanks to Dogs Trust’s Canine Card Card scheme, Jodie was able to find a second chance at happiness She was thrilled with her blanket and I am sure she will enjoy many an evening stretched out on it in her brand new home.”

Canine Care Card
Many dog owners may worry what might happen to their dog if they were to pass away first. Dogs Trust offers the Canine Care Card, a special free service that will give them peace of mind, knowing that the Charity will look after their dog if the worst should happen
It’s a simple registration process and dog-owners are encouraged to provide as much information as possible about their dog to ensure that Dogs Trust can find them the most suitable new home.
Once registered, people are issued with a special card that they can carry with them as they would a donor card. Dogs Trust also recommends that they let friends and family know of their wishes and mention care of their dog in their Will.
Dogs Trust never puts a healthy dog down, and works hard to match every dog with a responsible, loving new home, no matter how long this may take.
