Dozens of coats donated to homeless dogs

A charity for homeless dogs has received dozens of coats and doggy treats following a campaign organised by Pets Corner.

A total of 224 coats have been donated to the animal charity ‘Give a dog a coat’, which will be distributed to homeless dogs across the UK to help keep them warm during the cold winter months.

The family-run ethical pet retailer asked customers and animal lovers to donate pre-loved, new and homemade dog coats throughout November and December by dropping them off at one of the 102 Pets Corner stores across the UK.  For every coat received, Pets Corner matched the donation with a tasty doggy treat for the charity.

‘Give a dog a coat’ was set up by Lara Evans of Essex, who was upset by seeing so many homeless, cold and shivering dogs in London during winter.  She felt the need to help and started knitting and sewing dog coats.  When she couldn’t keep up with the demand, she started an appeal asking others to donate second hand or homemade dog coats of their own.

Lara said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response and we would like to thank Pets Corner for collecting the coats and everyone who has made a donation and supported us with this initiative.  The coats will make a huge difference to the lives and wellbeing of homeless dogs during the colder months.”

Managing Director at Pets Corner Dean Richmond added: “It’s tragic that in 2016 there are so many homeless dogs across the UK.  We are delighted to be supporting ‘Give a dog a coat’ and cannot thank our customers enough for their enthusiasm, generosity and support.”

It’s still not too late to donate a coat to ‘Give a Dog a Coat’ – either drop off your donation in one of Pets Corner’s 103 stores or visit the ‘Give a Dog a Coat’ Facebook page for more information.
