Wednesday, 15th June 2011

Dogs Trust Merseyside in Liverpool is asking for donations of dog food for the pooches they are looking after.

According to, the animal charity relies on community support and donations.

Georgina Lowery, Dogs Trust rehoming centre manager, told the news provider: "We rely heavily on support from the local community for volunteers and donations of tinned dog food, treats like rawhide, peanut butter and hot dogs.

"We would be really grateful if dog lovers could pick up a few tins of hot dog sausages on their next shop and drop them off at the Rehoming Centre."

She added that all donations are very much appreciated.

Dogs Trust was founded in 1891 at a meeting held during the first Crufts show. It was formally known as the National Canine Defence League.

It currently has 17 rehoming centres across the UK and, on average, it cares for 16,000 dogs every year.
