In this video, we find our all about the dog rescue animal shelter Dogs Trust, how many stray and hand over dogs they rehome and the education work they do.
Lesley Gold, Dogs Trust Supporter Relations Officer, talks to Caroline Griffith about Dogs Trust and their work caring and finding new homes for dogs.
Lesley explains how the rehoming process works, what sort of dogs come into the centre and how many dogs they are able to help each year.
Lesley also dispels some myths about rescue dogs and shares with us the reasons behind the non-destruction policy that Dogs Trust have in place, which means they never put a healthy dog down.

While we were at Dogs Trust, we also filmed a great article about Microchipping. We found out how Dogs Trust offer discounted microchipping as they are keen to promote the benefits of having your dog identified easily and how the practice has successfully reunited dogs and owners up and down the UK and played a huge role in the reduction of stray dogs on the streets. In our Dogs Trust Microchipping video
, Lesley discusses the myths surrounding microchipping and explains why it's such an important thing to consider doing as a responsible dog owner.
