At Christmas time: spare a thought for man's best friend

Dogs Trust: We created our slogan A dog is for life, not just for Christmas® over 40 years ago to remind people to only get a dog when they are truly ready for the lifelong commitment.

Owning a dog is a wonderful experience bringing years of companionship, fun and love. But it doesn’t always turn out as expected. We’re here to look after dogs that need us, which may sadly be the case for many dogs after Christmas is over. We’ll love and care for those dogs until they find their forever home; but wouldn’t it be wonderful if we can support more people in responsible dog adoption so that all dogs’ forever homes aren’t so far away.

No puppy should be born to be smuggled. Not at Christmas. Not ever.

Our new animation tells the story of a puppy, imported into the country illegally to meet the demand in the UK. Thousands of smuggled pups are sold online each year to unsuspecting dog lovers.

We need your help to change the tale for smuggled puppies and be there for the dogs who need us most.

Calli wishes all of you a very Merry Christmas!

Please consider supporting Dogs Trust, Healing Paws Rescue or another animal charity. Dogs are a very special part of God's creation. Let us show these beautiful creatures the Love that God shows to us.
