Despite the numerous reports of the huge surge of Brits adopting dogs since lockdown hit last year, several owners have also been forced to let go of their beloved pets.
Job losses due to the coronavirus pandemic have led to less income or people returning to work unable to find or afford suitable sitters for their canines are just some of the main reasons why.
Thanks to Colin’s generosity, he and his eight full time workers and volunteers successfully created a food bank to help their doggy neighbours.
Colin said: “We have had donations of food, leads, and beds. We will deliver them to Bleakholt but plan to keep the bank going and perhaps give stuff to other animal charities too, that’s the idea.”
Wags Doggy Day Care Centre consists of three separate dog-friendly classrooms for students to enjoy several activities throughout the day.
Describing itself as an ‘independent school for dogs’, free play, scent work, one-on-one and group training are just some of the classes hounds take part in to improve their social skills.
It also has a training centre, puppy creche, and grooming salon and a huge space run through tunnels and see-saws to keep them healthy and stimulated.
There is even a ‘cinema’ where dog blockbusters such as Marley and Me are played.
