Can you help make it a ‘paw-fect’ Christmas for homeless hounds?
Dogs Trust Shrewsbury is in need of donations for its Christmas Fair
Staff and four-legged residents at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury are hoping that generous members of the public and local businesses will help to make this year’s Christmas Fair a success by donating prizes for their raffle and tombola.
Taking place at the Telford Rehoming Centre on Sunday 26 November from 12pm-4pm, staff are appealing for donations for the tombola and raffle which help raise thousands of pounds for homeless hounds every year.
The team are hoping everything from bottles of wine and chocolates to teddy bears and toiletries and vouchers for spa treatments and experience days will be donated for the day.
Lee Pogson, Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury, says:
“Our slogan is ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas’ but unfortunately many dogs find themselves without a home and at least 80 will be with us on Christmas Day this year.
“Our Christmas Fair is a key event for us as it raises much needed funds so we can give the dogs everything they need at Christmas and every day they are with us.
“With just a few weeks to go we are hoping that once again kind-hearted dog lovers will be as generous as they have been in previous years and help make the day a great success.”
Visitors will have the opportunity to meet Mrs Claus in her grotto and have their picture taken with her and their four-legged friend as well as enjoying Christmas refreshments.
If you are able to help, please send or drop off any donations at the centre at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury at Roden Lane Farm, Telford, Shropshire, TF6 6BP.
