We're proud to be an official Fetching Fundraiser for Dogs Trust
20th November 2020
Earlier this year, to celebrate National Dog Day, we launched a nationwide #DoginWindow photo competition asking dog owners to share their best window snaps to find the UK’s cutest pooch. And they sure did deliver; Kynda from Bolton was crowned the winner with a number of runners up melting our hearts all across the UK. You can see the full list of our adorable friends here.
As a business, we were keen to do something a bit more exciting for National Dog Day; not only to celebrate our special pets, but to help raise awareness around the number of dogs worldwide who face cruelty and tough conditions. Therefore as part of our campaign, we donated £2,500 to Dogs Trust to support the important work they do for the welfare of dogs.
During the pandemic, Dogs Trust has reported an “overwhelming” number of requests to adopt canines and keep the nation company during lockdown, with 25% more dogs rehomed in comparison to this time last year.
With the nation spending more time with their precious pets, this invaluable time has given everyone the opportunity to appreciate how lucky we are to have our four-legged friends in our lives, especially during these tough times.
Martin Troughton, Head of Marketing at Safestyle commented: “We’re thrilled to be able to donate money to such a worthwhile cause. The work that Dogs Trust carry out in the UK is vital to the welfare of dogs, and we launched our #DoginWindow competition to help spread awareness of those in need. The amazing entries and stories we received show just how important our special pets are in our lives and highlight how grateful we are for them.”
