Adopt don’t shop this Black Friday

Rehoming appeal for black dogs at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe

Staff at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe are hoping Black Friday will inspire local dog lovers to swap shopping for adopting and give one of their three black dogs a new home.

The rehoming centre currently has three black ex-racing Greyhounds looking for their forever homes and they have all got their paws crossed in the hope that this Black Friday will prove lucky for them.

All of the dogs have different personalities but the one thing they all have in common now they have hung up their racing shoes is that they are looking to reserve their spot on the sofa in the home of a special someone.

Rogan Quinn, Rehoming Centre Assistant Manager at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe said: “As people traditionally hit the shops on Black Friday, we’re hoping they will adopt not shop and use it as the perfect opportunity to celebrate the wonderful black dogs in our care.

“Our three gorgeous black dogs are all such super characters and they really deserve to find a loving new home – we thought if any day would be lucky for them, then surely it’s Black Friday. If you think you could give any of our black dogs a happy home, please get in touch.”

The black dogs looking for a home are:

Four-year-old Boy is a handsome lad with lots of love and affectionate to offer a new owner. He enjoys the company of other dogs and, after a quick burst of exercise, he enjoys stretching out on a nice comfy bed. Boy could live with another dog and older children.

Chloe, aged four, is a gentle, sweet-natured girl who is a huge fan of cuddles and looks to her human companion for reassurance in new situations. She loves a game of chase with her kennel mate so she would enjoy having doggy friends in her new home or lots of walking buddies. She needs patient owners who will give her time to settle in and adjust to being in a home environment. Chloe could live with children aged 13 and over.

Four-year-old Marvel loves food! He’ll do anything if offered a tasty treat. He is affectionate so loves fuss and attention. He is an energetic fella who loves running around with his doggy friends before curling up for a snooze. He’d need an active home where his new family can offer him plenty of open space to run around in. He could live with older teenagers and other dogs.

If you would like to give any of these dogs a home, please call the rehoming centre on 0300 303 0292 to find out more.
