Andrew Gwynne MP and Denton Councillor Allison Gwynne have headed to the Dogs Trust Manchester Rehoming Centre to promote volunteering and to hopefully find a new home for two dogs, Meg and Beau.
Meg, 17, is a Staffordshire Cross, and is best friends with Beau, 7, a Dogue De Bordeaux. The two are inseparable, and the centre hopes to find a loving home willing to keep the two together.
Cllr Gwynne has been a regular volunteer at the centre since it opened in October 2014, but the Dogs Trust needs more local residents to help out to find homes for as many dogs as possible. The centre cost £7m to build and is responsible for all rehoming across Greater Manchester. The building also includes a cafe for visitors and the charity’s national contact centre which deals with calls from the public.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“The centre in Denton is a stunning facility for all of Greater Manchester with lots of potential, and it has done so much good work since it opened more than a year ago.
“If we want to find homes for more dogs in the year ahead, we need volunteers for the centre and loving homes for the dogs. If you are interested in doing either, then give the centre a call and they will be more than happy to discuss it.”
The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking a new pet home is just eight days. To register your interest in taking in Beau and Meg, give the centre a call on 0161 337 3600 and you will be invited for a chat.
