Local Charity Takes Unusual Approach To Raise Awareness

VOLUNTEERS at a canine charity have taken an unusual approach to rehoming by taking dogs looking for homes out to find potential adopters.

Fifteen volunteers from Finding Furever Homes, which uses kennels in Condover, Shropshire, took a number of dogs for a walk through Quarry Park in Shrewsbury on Sunday 6 November in the hope that the animals would have a good time and might even bump into a local dog lover wanting to offer them a home.

Charity trustee, Andrea Newton, who was the brains behind the idea, said not only did the dogs have a great day away from kennel life but it was a brilliant way for people to find out that the charity exists.

She said: "As a small charity with no staff and a huge number of dogs in need of our help we are always desperate for furever homes for dogs - so we decided to take some of those animal out to meet the pubic so they can see what lovely animals we have."
