Christmas Café and Santa Paws joy at Dogs Trust Glasgow this festive season

Dogs Trust Glasgow will be hosting a Christmas Café and Santa Paws event, taking place at the Uddingston Rehoming Centre on Saturday 23rd November, between 12.00pm and 3.00pm. This exciting event will offer attendees the chance to get their pet’s photograph taken with Santa ‘Paws’ and take home a gift from their visit.

In aid of the event, the team are on the lookout for donations of toys, blankets and tinned food on the day; as well as donations of home baking with a list of ingredients. All proceeds from the day will go towards the continued support of the 70 dogs in the care of the Rehoming Centre over the festive period.

Emma-Louise Livingstone, Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust Glasgow, said:

“We are very excited because this is our first Christmas Café and Santa Paws event. Supporters are being invited to come along and take part in some festive cheer in aid of our canine residents; and all funds from the day go towards the continued care of our dogs. Attendees can take part in our raffle and tombola, as well as getting the opportunity to purchase a range of Dogs Trust merchandise.

“We look forward to seeing lots of familiar faces such as ex-Dogs Trust residents and their families.”
