2018 starts very busy for Dogs Trust Manchester. They are celebrating that 100 dogs find forever homes in the first month of the new year.
The 100th homeless hound is a two months old English Springer Spaniel Cross. Oscar is happily settling into his new home with his owner Robin Stroud.
Mr. Stroud said:
“I had a Border Collie as a child and I really wanted a playful, active young dog who wants lots of physical and mental stimulation, and Oscar definitely fits the bill!”
“He is absolutely gorgeous, full of fun and I’m sure he’s going to keep me on my toes for many years to come! It’s brilliant that so many people have chosen to adopt a dog and I’m proud that Oscar was the 100th to head home and even prouder that it was with me!”
In October 2014 opened Dogs Trust Manchester its doors on Parkway in Denton to the public. They found homes for more than 2.960 dogs.
Dawn Bishop from Rehoming Centre Manager, said:
“It has been an incredible start to the year and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has adopted one of our gorgeous dogs. We have seen dogs of all shapes, sizes and I’m happy to say ages, from young pups to golden oldies, find their special someone and it’s all thanks to people choosing to give a dog a second chance.
“Dogs find themselves without a home for many reasons including death or illness in the family, it might be because of a relationship breakdown or financial reasons. Whatever the reason we are committed to finding them their ideal home and although we have now seen thousands of dogs leave the rehoming centre with their excited new families, tails happily wagging, we never tire of it. It’s a fantastic feeling that never fades.”
