Dogs Trust Manchester is celebrating finding forever homes for almost 2,000 homeless hounds in the two years since it opened.
To mark its second birthday a special party was held for deaf American Bulldog puppy, Daisy.
Since opening on 23 October 2014 the Rehoming Centre in Denton has found homes for dogs of all shapes and sizes, from an eleven stone Neapolitan Mastiff to a Papillon weighing less than a bag of flour.
Now the team are now hoping it will be four-month-old Daisy’s turn to head home with her perfect family.
Dawn Bishop, Rehoming Centre Manager, tells us about more about Daisy and how she enjoyed her party:
“She is like any puppy – she loves to play with her toys, enjoys having a cuddle and is a really quick learner, taking in everything around her. Training her is very similar to training any dog and her focus is probably better than most as she doesn’t get distracted! She loves her food too and so was delighted to have first bite of the birthday cake!”
Some fun facts about Manchester Dog’s Trust’s first two years:
– 18,000kg of dried dog food has been eaten
– 28,000 tins of dog food has been devoured
– 6,000 packets of doggie treats have been enjoyed
– 80,000kg of bedding has been washed
Reflecting on the anniversary, Dawn said, “We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us. So many dogs are in loving homes thanks to everyone who has come to us to give a dog a second chance.
“People just walk into the centre with everything from toys and treats to tinned food, all of which is needed and thoroughly enjoyed by our dogs. We can have around 100 dogs here at any one time and we really couldn’t give them everything they need without the generosity of our supporters.
“So as well as saying a huge thank you to everyone who has been able to give a dog their forever home, we would like to thank everyone who has supported us by making donations.
“We are now really hoping someone falls in love with Daisy soon, as she is really missing out not being in a home of her own.”
Daisy is looking for a home with owners who have time to give her the training she needs as she is so young. She can live with children over the age of eleven but would like to be the only dog in the home.
