Hats off to the RSPCA
We love it when a dog finds their paw-fect owner, ensuring they’ll get bowlfuls of love and plenty of cuddles. And there’s nothing quite like when an abandoned or abused pup gets a second chance with new parents.
In 2015, The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) – which is funded solely by public donations – found new, caring homes for 47,651 pets, and the majority of these re-homed critters are dogs.
It’s probably no surprise that doggy welfare is close to our furry little hearts, so it was a no-brainer decision for us to bark our support of RSPCA Week on Twitter, Facebook and our blog. Here’s how you can join DogBuddy in helping dogs get the homes they deserve:
Every booking you make between 6th June – 12th June with our special promo code RSPCA will earn you a handy £5 discount and donate £5 to the RSPCA. You win, the dogs win! When paying for your booking, simply click on ‘coupon code’ underneath your booking summary, pop in the code and we’ll do the rest. Hurry though, the code expires as the clock strikes midnight!*
And if you needed any more convincing about the great work they’re doing, here are some RSPCA rescue and rehoming stories that melted our hearts this week…
Stella the Staffie
Don’t be fooled by that smile. Stella is lean-mean-crime-fighting machine, and she’s got a trophy to prove it. After her RSPCA rescuers realised she had a knack for finding hidden objects, she got herself a gig as a police dog, eventually winning the Public Services Animal of the Year Award. It’s fairly unusual for a Staffie to be used for police work – breeds such as German Shepherds and Labradors are the usual favourites, but that doesn’t bother Stella. She’s a trailblazer!
Delphine the Springer Spaniel
Even dogs with health issues deserve a good owner. Delphine’s blindness and hearing sensitivity was no barrier for her new mum and dad to love her. They travelled hundreds of miles to meet her and ensure she was relaxed with them. Delphine has learned to find her way around her new home with special vocal commands and mats – clever girl!
Bridie the Irish Setter
Bridie has a truly heartwarming story. Rescued from awful conditions, she was malnourished and terrified. But after a lot of TLC from the RSPCA she is now a happy dog with an adoring owner who says she’s found a new lease of life. Apparently, Bridie occasionally reveals her mischievous side. With eyes like those, we can believe it.
Remember, make a booking using the code RSPCA today and not only will you get a £5 discount*, we’ll also send £5 over to the RSPCA to help them continue to rescue and find new homes for cuties like Stella, Delphine and Bridie.
*Code cannot be used with any other promotion. Expires 11:59pm (BST) 12th June 2016.
