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.

A lovely way to spend the working day

Yap, yap, it’s Oona here! I wanted to tell you about a recent, lovely afternoon I spent with Lucy giving a presentation to the most friendly, kind and smiley group of ladies. We were lucky enough to have been invited to talk to the Landford, Hamptworth & Nomansland W.I. all about our work and what we do each day to find loving homes for all my amazing fellow four-legged friends.

We met in the sweetest little Reading Room in the New Forest, where I twitched my whiskers at all the free-roaming ponies and donkeys we passed on the way.

The ladies were fabulous, and I could tell from the way they greeted me that they really like doggies. They all kept saying ‘awww’ when they looked at me, especially when Lucy was explaining the scary life I’d had before I reached the safety of Dogs Trust. Lucy told all the ladies about the free scheme that we offer to all dog owners called the ‘Canine Care Card,’ where we promise to look after your dogs if the worst should happen. We also celebrated the very successful year of finding ‘fur-ever’ homes we had last year and all wished for more amazing rehomers to find their special someone with us this year. After our talk, Lucy was offered lots of yummy cakes and tea, and I was given even more compliments on my pretty eyes and “butter wouldn’t melt” face. 

On our way home, Lucy stopped at a very pretty place near Fordingbridge where I could stretch my legs and sniff at all the exciting scents left behind by all the forest wildlife. Lucy always says it’s on walks like this that I remember I’m a Jack Russell and I run around with a face full of mischief.
