DOGS Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, will be delivering a record number of hampers to dogs whose owners are either homeless or in housing crisis this Christmas.

While every day Dogs Trust West London at Harefield is helping stray and abandoned dogs, there are hundreds of animals and their owners in housing crisis.

The charity set up its Hope Project in 1995 and also offers free veterinary treatment all year round to dogs whose owners are homeless or in housing crisis.
