UN­WANTED du­vets made for hap­pier dogs as 1,000 blan­kets have been de­liv­ered to an­i­mal char­i­ties.

At the end of the aca­demic year, Brunel Univer­sity stu­dents leave their un­wanted du­vets in their hall of res­i­dence.

Hilling­don Coun­cil’s waste and re­cy­cling team col­lected them to save them be­ing sent to land­fill sites.

Now, cats and dogs res­cued by The Dogs Trust in Hare­field and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home are nice and cosy thanks to the coun­cil’s de­liv­ery of 1,000 du­vets, which are used as bed­ding.

Richard Moore, Re­hom­ing Cen­tre Man­ager at Dogs Trust Hare­field said: “We are so grate­ful to Hilling­don Coun­cil for yet another in­cred­i­bly gen­er­ous do­na­tion of bed­ding for the home­less hounds in our care.

“Keep­ing the dogs happy and healthy as they wait for their new fam­i­lies is one of our top pri­or­i­ties, and these do­na­tions go a long way in mak­ing sure they are as com­fort­able as they can be.”

Cllr Keith Bur­rows, Cab­i­net Mem­ber for Plan­ning, Trans­port and Re­cy­cling, com­mends the Coun­cil’s waste and re­cy­cling team for “go­ing the ex­tra mile”.

He said: “This year our waste and re­cy­cling team col­lected over 1,000 du­vets – 800 for the Dogs Trust in Hare­field and the rest for Battersea Dogs and Cats’ Home, Old Wind­sor site.”
