Project information

Secret Santa Appeal 2016

This project aims to provide rescue dogs who've been in kennels for a long time, some over 4 years, with a surprise Christmas present of treats, toys and pampering goods. Some of these dogs have suffered injuries, abuse or neglect which can make rehoming a challenge.

November 2016 - December 2016
