Here's a nice idea from Dogs Trust:
AND THEY CALL IT PUPPY LOVE…….”
Sponsor a Dogs Trust rescue dog this Valentine’s Day
Faithful, really cute and remembers to send you a Valentine’s card. No, it’s not your knight in shining armour, but a Dogs Trust sponsor dog looking for the perfect partner this February 14th.
Just £1 a week will help provide food, bedding, affection and veterinary care for your chosen Dogs Trust sponsor dog. In return you will not only receive regular news from them in the form of letters, Valentine and Christmas cards, but also a certificate in your name and regular copies of the Dogs Trust magazine Wag!.
Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and cares for over 16,000 stray and abandoned dogs each year through its network of 18 rehoming centres in the UK and Ireland. Although thousands of dogs are rehomed every year, a few will spend their life as permanent residents at Dogs Trust as sponsor dogs.
Sponsoring a dog is an ideal way to care for a dog, even if you can’t have one yourself. Many sponsor dogs can be visited and you can even send them special treats and gifts.
There are lots of lovely sponsor dogs to choose from so if you would like to find out more about sponsoring a rescue dog from Dogs Trust, then simply call 020 7837 0006 and set it up on the phone, or go to our website at www.sponsoradog.co.uk.
Mister Magoo, or Gooey as he’s known by his carers, is one of the charity’s sponsor dogs. The 8 year old Scruffy Lurcher was found as a stray and had been rehomed 6 times. Sadly, he hasn’t been able to find a home of his own due to his overprotective nature. However, he is a lovely dog, despite this and is very happy and settled in kennels which makes him perfect for the charity’s sponsor a dog scheme. Mister Magoo loves human company but is also comfortable around dogs, especially the ladies! His current kennel mate is a female Lurcher called Iceberg.
