I don’t have any family so my dog Rowley is everything to me. I’ve adopted two other dogs before Rowley, Jumble and Captain. When they passed away I thought my heart would break. I said never again but then I met Rowley, he was in desperate need of a home and the rest is history.
I don’t think you ever feel lonely when you have a dog. We meet so many people on our walks and everyone wants to chat to Rowley.
I began supporting Dogs Trust ten years ago and no matter what’s happened in my life that’s never changed.
Dogs Trust is committed to giving every dog they meet the chance at a better, happier life, they do everything they can to save every dog. That’s a big part of why I chose to include a gift to Dogs Trust in my Will. In fact, they’re my main beneficiary.
I’ve seen the exceptional care Dogs Trust provide for the dogs who need them. At the Rehoming Centre everything is so clean and the dogs are always warm, comfortable and well fed.
Something I feel strongly about is that they are not just left to idle, they are played with and walked. Dogs Trust makes sure that the dog’s days are varied and that they get plenty of exercise and stimulation.
It’s the well run organisation that dogs deserve.
I have so much faith in Dogs Trust that I want them to take care of Rowley if I die. That’s why I have a Canine Care Card, knowing he’ll be safe in their care till they find someone to adopt him means everything to me.
Dogs Trust can never thank Valerie enough for her incredible commitment. Her gift will change the lives of dogs from all over Ireland.
