Girls Aloud Helps Dog Scheme

by Leanne Thompson on November 21, 2008

This week, Cheryl Cole and the rest of the Girls Aloud group were in Uxbridge, West London to help launch a scheme to promote the welfare of dogs by teaching children how to look after them.

The girls went to the Dogs Trust on behalf of Nintendo to donate Nintendo DS consoles and copies of the Nintendogs game to the trust. The group, Sarah Harding, Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh, are seen in the Nintendogs advert playing with their virtual dog and in a statement said:

‘We are all dog lovers ourselves so are fully supportive of this scheme which teaches kids what looking after a dog really involves.’

‘We all love our Nintendo DS’s…there’s always something to keep us laughing and entertained – the different DS colours mean we never get them mixed up too!’

Nadine Coyle has also commented:

‘I love my Nintendog ‘Miso’; I can feed him, take him for walks and play with him every day, it’s just like having a real dog in my hand.’

Each year, thousands of dogs are put down or abandoned but the Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog charity, is known for its phrase that it will never put a healthy dog down.

The Dogs Trust believes that a programme such as Nintendogs can only help the situation and should encourage young dog lovers to seriously think about the needs of a real animal before they pester their parents for one.
