COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are not open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff and our visitors safe.

Calling all dog lovers – Dogs Trust Loughborough needs you!

It’s the biggest fundraiser in the doggie calendar and Dogs Trust Loughborough is encouraging local people to join in the furry-fun and volunteer at its annual Fun Day on Sunday 28 July.

The event will take place at Turnpost Farm in Wymeswold from 10.30am-4pm and will include fun and games for all the family including the ever-popular Fun Dog Show which includes classes such as Best Biscuit Catcher, have-a-go agility, games for everyone, a raffle and tombola.

The rehoming centre is looking for volunteers to take on various roles including setting up and staffing stalls, serving refreshments, selling raffle tickets, giving out prizes and of course looking after two and four-legged friends to make sure everyone has a great day.

Hannah Graham, Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust Loughborough and organiser of the event, says:

“Volunteers are extremely important to us as a charity and we couldn’t care for as many dogs as we do without their help throughout the year, and we need them to work alongside us at our Fun Day too.

“The day attracts thousands of visitors every year and last year we raised over £13,000 despite a torrential downpour in the middle of a heat wave! Every penny raised goes towards looking after the dogs in our care. Without volunteers the event couldn’t be as big as it is, so we’re hoping lots of dog lovers will come on board this year.”
