Dogs Trust Memorial Tags

As a Dog Lover, you know the special bond a dog brings to your family. When your faithful friend passes away, it is a devastating experience. In a special garden at Dogs Trust, we have created a solace for dog lovers to go when they have lost their faithful friend.

We have commissioned a beautiful sculpture of a dog to honour your Best Friend and the love you shared.

You can engrave an individual name tag with your special pet's name to hang on the dog sculpture at Dogs Trust forever, in tribute to the lasting pawprint your Best Friend has left on your heart.

Not only will you be honouring your own dog, you will be helping thousands more to get all the loving care they need until they find their Forever Family who will love them just as much as you loved your Best Friend.

In return you will receive a special Certificate to keep, for commemorating your beloved pet in this meaningful way.

If you know a dog lover who has experienced a loss, you can help them honour their dog too by engraving a special tag on their behalf. We will send them a Certificate to let them know you are thinking of them.
