Dogs Trust takes 'pride' in its canine residents to find them new homes

Dogs Trust Glasgow is set to support this year’s LGBT+ Pride Festival at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park on 14th and 15th July with a fun dog show for all the family to enjoy. In the run up to this exciting annual event, canine carers are appealing for homes for special canine residents as they believe, just like every person, every dog also deserves to be loved for who they are.

The first dog in need of a new home is Otis, an 11-week-old Lurcher puppy who is full of energy and looking for a family who will devote time and patience to continuing his training. He can live with children of all ages, dogs and cats too; as being around people and animals will help him develop socially as he grows up.

Dodger and his new canine doppelganger Tippy are also in search of new homes. Dodger has been in the care of Dogs Trust Glasgow for two years and instantly became friends with Tippy, who arrived at the Rehoming Centre a couple of weeks ago.

Tippy can be shy at first but warms quickly to new people and is looking for a family who can give her space when she needs it. Dodger has also become more confident around other dogs and people, however would still need to meet potential owners a number of times before going to his forever home.

Tintin is an adorable West Highland Terrier who was found straying by local authorities. Not much is know about Tintin’s life prior to becoming a Dogs Trust resident; however he is blind and will require a little extra TLC but absolutely loves being around people.

Sandra Lawton, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Glasgow, said:

“Pride is such an important event that promotes acceptance, equality and inclusivity; and Dogs Trust is honoured to support Glasgow’s festival each year. Not only do we think every person deserves to be loved for who they are; but we believe this should also apply to dogs, regardless of their age, size, breed or colour.

“We really hope to find new homes for our residents because we take pride in matching dogs with suitable human companions who believe a dog is for life.”

Dogs Trust Glasgow will be attending the Pride Festival parade on Saturday 14th July which will see a huge number of supporters march across the city centre of Glasgow. The parade starts at Clyde St at 12.00pm.

Dogs Trust’s Doggy Dash competition will take place in the afternoon of 14th July from 3-5pm, with the fun dog show kicking off on Sunday 15th July between 1-5pm at Kelvingrove Park. Please note Glasgow Pride is not a Dogs Trust event and an entry fee will apply. For more information, please visit http://festival.pride.scot/
