Tails you win for lucky dogs

Evesham Editorial 22nd Oct, 2019   0

TAILS were wagging at Dogs Trust Evesham as four-legged friends came face to face with three dog lovers whose lottery joy helped pay for their care.

Angie Parmenter, Nigel Taylor and Dominic Vaughan from Badsey are all recent winners of People’s Postcode Lottery which helps raise cash to support the charity’s efforts at its Wickhamford base.

The trio were given a special behind the scenes tour and met some of the very important pooches looking for their forever homes, including four-month-old Trailhound pups Phil, Amelia, Dave and Alice.

Mrs Parmenter, who rehomed Popeye an American bulldog from Dogs Trust four years ago said: “It was fantastic to see behind the scenes and the wonderful efforts of staff at the rehoming centre who work tirelessly to ensure that all of the dogs in their care are incredibly well looked after.

Last year the Evesham rehoming centre rehomed 700 dogs and has already rehomed more than 500 this year.

Following the visit, assistant manager Tracey Spiers said: “It was a great opportunity to show them how playing People’s Postcode Lottery helps the rescue dogs right on their doorstep.

“Without them we really couldn’t continue to do the work we do and fund vital staff who can give specialist care to dogs in need,” she added.
