Turning Good Friday into ‘Good Fido’ Day!
Dogs Trust rehoming appeal for dogs looking for special homes


Dogs Trust Kenilworth Rehoming Centre is holding its very own ‘Good Fido Day’ on Friday 14 April so that some of their special long-term residents can take centre stage.

This event will give dogs that tend to prefer to be the only four-legged friend in the family the chance to shine. As they can find it difficult to get on with other dogs, a kennel environment like that at the Rehoming Centre, doesn’t give a chance for these canine characters to really hog – or should that be ‘dog’ – the limelight.

Staff will be opening the Rehoming Centre especially (they are normally closed on a Friday) to offer attendees on the day a one-on-one service to match the right dog to the right home.

These will include dogs just like Tilly, an eight year old German Shepherd crossbreed, who requires a home where she will be the only pet and with an adult only family. As she is a slightly older dog and suffers from epilepsy, potential new owners can sometimes be put off as they mistakenly believe that she will be too expensive to care for or too much of a handful. However Tilly is very much a people dog and loves being the centre of attention! Due to her epilepsy she is also on Dogs Trust’s “Part-Foster Scheme”. This means that all the medical costs associated with her condition are paid for by the charity.

Sandra Wilson, Dogs Trust Kenilworth Centre Manager, says:

“At any one time we will have around 200 stray or abandoned dogs all looking for new loving homes for life. By organising a special event just for some of our long-term residents we hope that they can really show what great canine companions they can be.”

The event will start at 12 noon at Dogs Trust Kenilworth Rehoming Centre and closes at 4pm. For further information on Tilly or any of the Dogs Trust dogs at Kenilworth; or for information on the day itself please contact the Rehoming Centre directly on 01926 484398.

Golden Oldie Meg looking for love at Evesham

The staff at Dogs Trust Evesham hope that they can find a new loving home for life for one of their adorable canine residents, Meg.

Meg is a 14 year old Jack Russell Terrier who came to Dogs Trust Evesham on Valentine’s Day this year. She had been found as a stray so has been lapping up the love and cuddles given to her by the staff at the Rehoming Centre.

She is an adorable dog with a smile and a waggy tail for everyone she meets, including cats! Because she is so old, many potential new owners have passed her by and the staff are desperate to find her a home where she can be the centre of attention!

As Meg is an older dog she is part of Dogs Trust’s ‘Foster Scheme’ whereby all her medical costs will be paid for by the charity. But despite her age Meg really is an adorable character– a true example of man’s best friend.

Dogs Trust Evesham Rehoming Centre Manager, Chris Slight, comments;

“Meg is a stunning little dog who makes friends with everyone she meets. She has so much love to give and we hope that we can appeal to some kind-hearted dog lovers out there who can return that love and offer her a home of her own. If you are interested in Meg or any of the other 150 dogs at Dogs Trust Evesham please call us on 01386 830613.”
