‘Tis the season to be jolly! We hope you and your furry friends are looking forward to Christmas just as much as we are. While it’s a time to eat, drink and be merry and we all know that our pooches are the ones that will be most spoilt!

At this time of year, we also like to think of the dogs, cats and other animals who are less fortunate than our own and do our bit to raise awareness to their needs. Here at Lou’s Dog Services, we are big supporters of both local and national animal charities. We have raised funds through many different events, such as The Big Fun Run UK and The Great North Dog Walk. This Christmas we have decided to spread the festive cheer to one of our favourite North East animal charities, Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter.

Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter was established in 1896 and in that time has helped thousands of lost, unwanted, neglected, abused and abandoned animals. Their objective is the promotion of kindness and prevention of cruelty to animals, and we want to do our bit to help.

This December, with the help of our friends and customers, we would like to make a donation to help towards the care of all of the shelter animals this Christmas. Unfortunately not every cat or dog will have a place to call home this holiday but with help from the dedicated shelter team they will have a safe and caring roof over their head until they find their forever home.

The shelter are currently appealing for wet and dry cat and dog food, treat, toys, bedding, blankets and newspapers. If you have any old or spare products you think will help then please do not hesitate to contact us and we will arrange a time and date to pick these items up. No matter how small the contribution, it will make a big difference to a special animals life.

If you have any questions or if you would like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to contact us on +447795537003 or email info@lousdogservices.co.uk
