Eamonn supports Dogs Trust and the Love Rehoming campaign
On Tuesday 3 February Animal Friends donated £5000 to the Dogs Trust in Harefield, and Eamonn Holmes went along to help Managing Director, Elaine Fairfax, present the cheque.
The Love Rehoming campaign was launched with an aim to raise awareness about abandoned animals and change the negative stigma around animal rehoming. The campaign recently carried out a survey to look at the attitudes and behaviour of pet owners towards rehomed animals, in order to provide an insight to how rehoming figures can be improved.
Eamonn was thrilled to be able to support both Dogs Trust and the Love Rehoming campaign.
"Maggie, our dog who I rehomed from Dogs Trust, has completely changed my life," he said.
"I'm passionate about the importance of rehoming pets as a result; that's why campaigns like Love Rehoming are so vital and important. I just can't get over the love that Maggie gives to Ruth and I, I would like to urge everyone that they should get a dog from a rehoming charity like Dogs Trust."
Dogs of all shapes and sizes find themselves at Dogs Trust, many through no fault of their own. Dogs Trust is the UK's largest dog welfare charity and cares for nearly 17,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 Rehoming Centres across the UK and one in Dublin.
