Thousands of pounds raised for hounds at ‘paw-fect’ festive fair

Dogs Trust Shoreham staff and their canine companions are celebrating after their Christmas Fair raised almost £2,900.

Highlights of the event, which took place on Saturday 24th November, included Dogs Trust Shoreham’s first ever Santa Paws Grotto, where 60 children and canine companions received a gift. There were also carol singers, craft stalls, a raffle and tombola, cake stall and games. In total £2875.55 was raised for rescue dogs at the Shoreham rehoming centre.

Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust Shoreham, Lisa Herbert said:

“We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to support us. Every day we are looking after around 80 dogs and every penny will help make sure they have everything they need over Christmas, and for however long they are with us.

“Without the support of the dog loving public we wouldn’t be able to care for our dogs in the way we do, so we would like to say a huge thank you and wish everyone, and their four-legged friends, a happy Christmas and a happy and healthy 2020.”
