Dogs Trust

COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public but you can still adopt some of our dogs: take a look at their profiles to see which ones. We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe.

8 Year old Erin wanted a special gift for her Sponsor dog

8 year old Erin Smith from Hertfordshire put her summer holidays to good use this year, raising money for her Dogs Trust sponsor dog, Harper.

Erin had previously sponsored Raffa at the Dogs Trust Merseyside Rehoming Centre and was thrilled when he found himself a new family. Her sponsorship passed over to Husky Harper, also at the Huyton centre, and Erin felt bad that he didn’t have a family of his own to buy him toys.

This junior animal lover spent her summer making “Little Bags of Love”, pretty bags of dried lavender that she made herself. Erin picked and dried the lavender, and even managed to remove all the bugs! Then she bagged and tagged them all, with supervision from mum Michelle, before selling them to family and friends, raising £20 to buy Harper a very special gift

Michelle is incredibly proud of Erin and her idea to raise money, and Harper is very grateful for his wonderful new toys!
