Christmas gift for Dogs Trust

Salisbury Journal: Christmas gift for Dogs Trust Christmas gift for Dogs Trust

TAILS are wagging at Dogs Trust Salisbury this Christmas after the charity received a gift from players of People's Postcode Lottery.

The charity lottery has pledged £100,000 from its players to help the UK’s largest dog welfare charity to care for its 16,000 four-legged residents across its network of rehoming centres, including one in Salisbury.

It is the first time the charity has received money from the players of a major lottery.

Dogs Trust’s iconic slogan “A Dog is for Life, Not Just for Christmas” was created 35 years ago this December but is just as relevant today as the charity braces itself for an influx of unwanted dogs over the Christmas season. The support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery will help care for as many of these dogs as possible as they await loving new homes."

Clarissa Baldwin, Dogs Trust chief executive, said: “We rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters so this funding will make a huge difference to dog welfare in this country.”
