For International Day of Charity, we want to make a big announcement! The Preloved team will taking part in the Manchester Half Marathon and fundraising for Dogs Trust! We are thrilled to be raising money for such an important charity and we want to express to you our reasons for choosing Dogs Trust.
- Dogs Trust is the UK’s leading dog welfare charity and through their network of re-homing centres, amazing volunteers they ensure that all dogs enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of destruction.
- With more than 1,700 stray and abandoned dogs in Dogs Trust’s care at any one time, they are always desperate for help. They receive no government funding and are totally dependent on the generosity of the public.
- Here at Preloved, animal welfare is at the core of everything we do and we see first hand the damage puppy smuggling and animal mistreatment can do.
- As well as this, Dogs Trust aims to educate people in responsible dog ownership and care, hoping to reduce the number of dogs in need which is really important to us a team.
When Preloved Met Dogs Trust!
The Preloved team visited Manchester Dogs Trust to see first hand the good this wonderful charity does! We were given a tour of the site and the day to day running of the centre was explained to us – a lot of towels and toys!
We learnt how Dogs Trust not only rehome more than 15,000 dogs every year, but have launched the Hope Project which has funded 19,200 vet treatments for dogs whose owners are homeless or in a house crisis. This charity is incredibly important to not only the dogs, but the owners who love them.
We’d love it if you could sponsor us for our efforts, all money goes directly to helping the great team at Dogs Trust, and some very deserving pooches!
