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.

Spring Fair to raise pounds for hounds

Dogs Trust Newbury is looking forward to welcoming two and four-legged friends to their Spring Fair on 24th March.

The Hamstead Marshall-based rehoming centre will have something for everyone and their furry friends, including a raffle, tombola, an Easter egg hunt and crafts for children. There will be fun and games for dogs and owners alike, Easter-themed refreshments and Dogs Trust merchandise for sale. 

With just a few weeks to go until the event, staff are on the lookout for donations for the raffle and tombola as well as doggy-related items such as treats, toys and beds that can be included as prizes. 

Emma Wilcox, Supporter Relations Officer, says: 

"We’ve got our paws crossed for our first Easter Spring Fair and really hope the local people will come along and support us. Every penny raised goes towards helping us give our dogs the best care possible, so we are looking forward to welcoming old friends and new. 

“We’d be so grateful for any doggy-themed donations that dogs will love that will help us raise as much money as possible. We are hoping that there are kind-hearted dog lovers out there who can donate items such as treats, toys and bedding and help us raise much-needed pounds for hounds this Easter.”   

The fair is at the Rehoming Centre at Plumb’s Farm, Hamstead Marshall, Newbury RG20 0HR, between 12pm and 3pm. Entry is free and there is free parking on site. If you are interested in rehoming a dog from Dogs Trust Newbury, you will be able to chat to the team on the day.

If you are able to help, please send or drop off any donations to Dogs Trust Newbury in Hamstead Marshall.
