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

Member of Parliament for The Wrekin, Mark Pritchard MP, visited Dogs Trust Shrewsbury recently (Friday 9 July) and was greeted by wagging tails from dogs looking for new owners.   

Mr Pritchard was given a tour of the Shrewsbury rehoming centre, and met a number of dogs currently waiting for their forever homes, including Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross, Hugo. 

Following the visit, Dogs Trust Manager Louise Campbell, said:   

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

Mark Pritchard MP, commented:    

“I really enjoyed visiting Dogs Trust Shrewsbury 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 Shropshire.”
