Member of 'paw'liament meets VIPS (Very Important Pooches) during visit to Dogs Trust Salisbury

Member of Parliament for Salisbury, John Glen MP, visited Dogs Trust Salisbury last week (Friday 2nd July) and was greeted by wagging tails from dogs looking for new owners.  

Mr Glen was given a tour of the Salisbury rehoming centre, and met a number of dogs currently awaiting their forever homes, including Blue and Kita.  

Following the visit, Dogs Trust Supporter Relations Officer, Lucy Hooper, said:   

“We were delighted to welcome John to our rehoming centre to show her the work we do for the dogs in our care. Like all of us at Dogs Trust Salisbury, it is wonderful that John also cares so deeply about animal welfare and it was a fantastic opportunity to show her the hard work and dedication that goes on behind the scenes to prepare dogs for their forever homes.”    

John Glen MP, commented:    

“I really enjoyed visiting the centre, and it is fantastic to see how hard the staff work to ensure that all of the dogs in their care are incredibly well looked after. I was impressed by the passion and enthusiasm that Dogs Trust staff have for the well-being of their canine residents and the way they go above and beyond to rehome so many unwanted dogs across Salisbury.”
