Dogs Trust

UPDATE: Our rehoming centres are closed until further notice, however we are now able to rehome a small number of our amazing dogs. Each dog’s profile will let you know if they are looking for a new home. For the time-being, we are unable to register your interest for dogs who are not yet available for rehoming.

Dog lovers brave the elements to raise thousands of pounds for rescue dogs

Despite having to don waterproofs and hide under umbrellas, dog lovers from across the region made sure Dogs Trust Loughborough’s fun day was a success once more.

Four-legged friends and their owners were undeterred as the rain clouds gathered and they flocked to the event at Turnpost Farm in Wymeswold in their thousands, raising £9,431.63.

Over 250 dogs took part in the ever-popular dog show and at the end of the day, Collie Thea was declared Best in Show having won Best Female Rescue Under Eight Years.

Hannah Graham, Supporter Relations Officer and organiser of the event, says:

“Just like last year, the heavens opened but thank you to everyone who braved the weather, kept smiling and put the fun into our fun day!

“We want to say a huge thank you to everyone that helped out on the day too particularly our volunteers and also Nicky Morgan MP who helped judge the Best in Show.

“Every day of the year we look after around 80 dogs and every penny raised will go towards making sure we can give them everything they need whilst they wait for their special someone to come along.”
