The Dogs Trust will open the doors at their West Calder rehoming centre on 17 February to give the public an opportunity to see for themselves the work they do.

Craig Burt, Supporter Relations Officer at Dogs Trust West Calder, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming the public to our centre to learn more about Dogs Trust and hope anyone with an interest in our work and our amazing dogs will join us. Staff from various teams including Education; Dog School and Home from Home fostering will be on hand to chat and answer any questions and I will be hosting tours on the day.

“Of course, a visit to our Rehoming Centre wouldn’t be complete without seeing a dog or two so anyone interested in adopting a canine companion is also encouraged to come along. Our rescue dogs can be viewed until 4pm with centre staff again being on hand to talk about our current residents.

“We hope that anyone who attends will leave the event with a deeper understanding of our work and what is involved in finding forever homes for our fantastic rescue dogs.”

Parking and entry are free to the event which runs from 11am – 2pm. Refreshments will be provided.

The team at Dogs Trust West Calder are currently caring for 59 dogs with 47 at the centre and 12 in foster homes. You can see all the dogs patiently awaiting a new abode here –
