Dogs Trust Manchester is celebrating finding its 4,000th rescue dog his forever home.
Two-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Butch, was being cared for at the Denton-based rehoming centre having been found wandering the streets of Stockport. But now he has taken the accolade of being the 4,000th dog to be adopted, having stolen the hearts of Emily Gregory and Joseph Towse.
Since opening in October 2014, the centre has found homes for dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds, and they are hoping that it won’t be long before three-year-old Foxhound Charlie and Dutch Shepherd Mia are the next to say a fond farewell to the team.
Rehoming Centre Manager, Dawn Bishop, says:
“It is fantastic that we have rehomed so many dogs and we want to say a huge thank you to everyone that supports us, from people who choose to adopt to our volunteers and players of People’s Postcode Lottery, who help us make sure we can give our dogs everything they need whilst they are with us.
“We wouldn’t be able to care for dogs in the way we do without a community of passionate dog lovers.”
