Dogs Trust:New Chance at Life Britain’s For Homeless Canines

http://SupremeMasterTV.com — Dogs Trust: Giving A New Chance at Life to Britain’s Homeless Canines. Episode: 1745, Air Date: 25 June 2011.

Sweet viewers, welcome to Animal World: Our Co-Inhabitants. Today we will visit the UK-based Dogs Trust, which looks after dogs in need and seeks to bring about a day when all dogs can enjoy a secure and happy life. Charlotte Peters, Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust now shares how the organization began.

Dogs Trust was founded back in 1891, and we are actually the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. We care for over 16,000 stray and abandoned dogs every single year throughout our network of 18 rehoming centers. As well as re-homing dogs, we also run several campaigns. We have a nationwide education program and we also offer subsidized neutering and microchipping in the worst affected areas.

Under the magical hands of the kindhearted Dogs Trust veterinarians and volunteers, every dog coming through the door of a Dogs Trust facility is given a fresh chance to live a better life.

This is Lulu. She came in from Ireland in very, very poor condition. Her fur was totally matted, she was covered in lice, her ears were very dirty, and all her eyebrows had actually grown inside her eyes. So she’s had to have an awful lot of treatment. As a result, all she wants now is loving; hence this lap dog. She doesn’t like walking on the floor, she just wants to be carried everywhere; she wants to be nursed all of the time. And she’s turned into a most beautiful little dog. So, isn’t she adorable? She’ll get plenty of walks while she’s here, definitely, and plenty of love.

Let’s now find out more about Dogs Trust’s love-filled rehoming centers!

It’s extremely bright, it’s extremely welcoming; we have a huge reception area. This center here is purpose-built. We wanted somewhere where people would want to come and look at the dogs, and also see how well cared for the dogs are here.

Obviously our priority is the dogs, so they have the most wonderful facilities; they have state of the art kennels, glass fronted kennels with under floor heating. So the kennel design is primarily for the dogs. Most people who walk through our doors say, “We can see how well cared for those dogs are.” We know that they’re in the best place.

Constructed with the environment in mind, the newest Dogs Trust rehoming center will have a “low carbon paw-print!” Dogs Trust’s chief executive Clarissa Baldwin provides more details.

This is our 18th rehoming center that’s going to be opened in Loughborough, which is in the East Midlands of England. We will be able to look after around a thousand dogs a year there. It will have green rooms, and it will have heat reclamation. Very much we are looking at the savings that we will make in the longer term.

Dogs Trust’s compassionate “Freedom Project” and “Hope Project” help animal caregivers look after their animals during family crisis periods and provides veterinary care to the canine companions of homeless persons respectively.

“Freedom (Project),” this is for women who are escaping domestic violence. And they have nowhere to go with their dogs, because it’s very difficult to find places to live with your dog. So what we do is we take the dog out of the abusive home, we look after them in rented accommodation for a while, or find foster homes for the dog, until such time as the abused person finds alternative accommodation. And we’ve look after about 500 dogs in this way and helped the families.

The “Hope Project,” this is for people on the streets who’ve got their dogs. We do know that there is a wonderful relationship between the homeless person and their dog. The homeless people in the bad weather for instance, and they’re sitting outside a shop, if it is raining, the umbrella will be over the dog, so they really have this wonderful relationship that we’d like to be able to support. So it’s microchipping, it’s neutering and it’s all the flea treatments and vaccinations that we give to the dogs.

Another sensitive initiative implemented by Dogs Trust helps give peace of mind to caregivers concerned there may be no one to look after their dog companion after they pass on. Should such an event occur, the canine friend would be taken to a rehoming center and Dogs Trust would help find a new loving home for him or her.

I also promote a scheme called the Canine Care Card, which is basically a card that you would carry around in your wallet, and it guarantees that in the event of your death Dogs Trust will look after your dog.

Dogs Trust is also taking steps to lessen the number of dogs being born without anyone to care for them.

When we first started looking at statistics we found that in the United Kingdom, something like 30,000 healthy dogs were being killed because there was just no home for them. So we decided that what we had to do was to sta
