National Dog Day - Dogs Trust

26th August 2022

26th August is National Dog Day, National Dog Day was established in 2004 by animal advocate & pet and family lifestyle expert Coleen Paige. The aim of the awareness day is to raise awareness about the number of dogs that are currently in rescue centres and encourage the adoption of these animals. Sadly, each year, millions of dogs become homeless because they are unwanted, or their owners are unable to care for them. National Dog Day aims to encourage people to adopt dogs from shelters and rescue organisations.

That’s why Caledonian Braves want to shine a light on our local Dogs Trust dog recue centre in Glasgow to show the great work they do for the community; Chris Ewing states “We are delighted to be able to highlight national dog day particularly dogs that have been rescued and need new homes”. Dogs are known as a man’s best friend renowned for their bravery, loyalty and companionship lots of the values that we strive to have at Caledonian Braves can be found in dogs, we can all learn a thing or two from our dogs.

Dogs Trust offer Rehoming information appointments, Guided tours and have open days on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday from 12 – 4pm in which you’ll be able to walk around the centre and see some of the dogs in their care and with your help it allows them to provide life changing care and forever homes for over 14,000 of our furry friends, If this interests you and want to find out more on how rehoming works, click here. For Dogs Trust to continue their vital work Dogs Trust relies on your kind support if you able to, please donate today

If you go over to our social media, you’ll be able to see some of the players and their dogs to show you just how great it is to have a dog of your own.
