    Find your Diamond in the Ruff with Dog’s Trust

    NewsShelter Dog SundayWednesday 30 August 2017

    With National Dogs Day just behind it’s been a time to celebrate Man’s best friend. However the sad reality is that many of our canine friends are in need of good homes.

    Dogs Trust, formerly known as the National Canine Defence League, is an animal welfare charity and humane society in the United Kingdom which specialises in the well-being of dogs. The charity rehabilitates and finds new homes for dogs which have been abandoned or given up by their owners. It also runs microchipping and neutering schemes in the United Kingdom and abroad, in order to reduce the number of unwanted litters of puppies and stray dogs euthanized by other organisations.

    Dogs Trust have cared for over 15,000 dogs and rehomed 13,000 dogs in 2016 alone and receive a call every 15 minutes from a member of the public looking to give up their dog. (35,000 calls a year)

    Dog’s Trust have made a fun puzzle for the public featuring five dogs that are in need of their forever home.

    Dog’s Trust CEO Adrian Burder said: “Finding the right dog for you may seem hard at first, but we want to encourage people to take a closer look. Sometimes, when you look hard enough, you’ll find a perfect canine companion.

    Each one of the dog’s profiles in the puzzle are below- anyone interested in adopting one of the adorable pooches below can call 0300 303 0292.
