THE lat­est do­na­tion to help dogs at a Hare­field re-hom­ing cen­tre has ‘sofa’ been well re­ceived.

A se­lec­tion of comfy chairs were anony­mously do­nated to the Dogs Trust Hare­field and the re­hom­ing cen­tre’s four­legged friends have been putting them to good use.

Richard Moore, re­hom­ing cen­tre man­ager at Dogs Trust Hare­field, said: “Our dogs love to keep warm and cosy in their kennels and th­ese arm­chairs pro­vide some ex­tra spe­cial home com­forts for them.

“We are in­cred­i­bly grate­ful for th­ese do­na­tions as they will go a long way to­wards mak­ing life more com­fort­able for the dogs in our care as they await lov­ing new homes.”

Staff have loved watch­ing them snug­gle down to rest their paws on the sofa af­ter a busy day and now hope they will soon be claim­ing a sofa in a lov­ing home of their own.

“The chairs have def­i­nitely helped some of our longer-term res­i­dents en­joy some home com­forts which will help pre­pare them for life in a new home when the time comes,” said Mr Moore.

“We hope the chairs will turn the heads of prospec­tive own­ers when they come to visit and help peo­ple imag­ine our dogs curled up in their own home!”

Dogs Trust Hare­field cur­rently has 60 dogs all look­ing for lov­ing homes. If you can home a dog, please call the re-hom­ing cen­tre on 0300 303 0292 or visit High­way Farm, Harvil Road, Hare­field, Uxbridge, UB9 6JW.
