THE Dogs Trust’s Rehoming Centre in Darlington is celebrating after successfully rehoming more than 1,000 dogs in 2018.

The Sadberge-based centre, which is currently undergoing a redevelopment, has maintained successful adoption figures after a year of disruptions to the daily running of the centre due to construction works.

Despite that success, the Dogs Trust Darlington are still waiting on new owners to give loving new homes to more dogs, including three-year-old Greyhounds Jasper and Pablo, are hoping to be some of the first dogs of 2019 to find their forever home.

Sue Embleton, rehoming centre manager, said: “We are very fortunate to have such a community of dog lovers and us and our dogs are lucky to benefit from funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery, whose funding not only help us to continue this work but has contributed significantly to the rebuild of the Rehoming Centre.”

Pablo and Jasper may look very similar, however they are both looking for homes to call their own. Jasper is a sensitive soul who prefers the quieter life and can live with children over the age of 14; with Pablo being much more outgoing and full of energy.
