Three ways to sup-pawt Dogs Trust this Christmas

This Christmas, Dogs Trust, which has rehoming centres in Bridgend and Cardiff, welcomes any support that can be spared, no matter how small, and it has shared three easy ways to support the charity, that won’t break the bank.

1. Sponsor a dog – It couldn’t be easier to sponsor a dog in the charity’s care, or to gift a sponsorship to a friend or loved one this Christmas for as little as £1 a week (£4.34 per month). With around 1600 dogs in Dogs Trust’s care at any one time, sponsoring a dog not only directly helps the chosen pooch but all the other dogs too. It’s a great gift and sponsors will receive an update from their chosen dog throughout the year.

2. Send a gift for dogs at Bridgend or Cardiff Rehoming Centre – At a click of a button send a present from Dogs Trust’s Amazon Wishlist, straight to the pups by choosing from a range of toys, treats, bedding, blankets and chews to get tails wagging.

3. Enter the Omaze Million Pound House Draw – This Christmas you can support Dogs Trust and be in with the chance of winning a dream house in the Lake District worth over £2,500,000, as well as £100,000 cash.

The draw is being backed by singer / songwriter star of The Wanted and Dogs Trust ambassador, Nathan Sykes, who has been to the amazing house. Nathan says “The partnership between Dogs Trust and Omaze is fantastic – it’s raising vital funds, as well as awareness, for such a wonderful charity, which will help it on its mission to help all our canine companions and their owners enjoy a happy life together. Everyone who enters the draw is contributing towards this crucial cause, and of course someone is guaranteed to win their dream home too!

There are a variety of entry options from £10 for 15 entries, and the prize draw closes just before midnight on Monday 26 December.
