Dogs Trust desperate for donation of blankets
3:19pm Friday 4th January 2013 in News
Dogs Trust Merseyside is making an urgent appeal for donations of blankets and towels for four-legged friends at the Huyton rehoming centre after washing machines broke down.
The 98 dogs in the centre’s care, which includes 12 puppies, are currently living with only a handful of blankets and towels between them and are in desperate need of more as the machines will take several weeks to repair.
Georgina Lowery, Dogs Trust Merseyside rehoming centre manager, said: “We are absolutely desperate for any bedding and towels that people are able to give us.
"Having our washing machines break down at this time of year will cause huge problems for our dogs as it is far too cold at the moment to run out of warm bedding.
"If anyone has any spare that they would be able to donate, our dogs would be extremely grateful. As we have dogs of all shapes and sizes and of all ages, a variety of blankets and towels would be ideal- the fluffier and warmer the better!”
Readers able to donate towels and blankets can visit Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre, Merseyside, Whiston Lane, Huyton, Liverpool, L36 6HP or go online to www.dogstrust.org.uk
If anyone has a large donation to make, the centre will arrange to collect it. You can call the unit on 0151 480 0660.
