Security chiefs help unwanted dogs find homes

The number of homeless canines around the United Kingdom is soaring but the efforts made by security chiefs working at the Business Protection (NE) in Hartlepool will soon see a decrease in the amount of dogs without a home.

Safe Homes and Kindness, a dog charity also known as SHAK, have been helping pooches to find loving homes for many years and, since they were first established, an abundance of dogs have been taken in and cared for by pet lovers.

In a bid to make a difference to the number of dogs SHAK is currently helping, Business Protection are organising a raffle to support the Northumberland-based charity. The raffle will take place on July 20 at Lynnfield Primary School and the £1 admission fee will be donated directly to SHAK so that every dog gets a second chance. Winners of the raffle will not only be helping the charity to expand and make profitable investments for rehoming purposes, they will also benefit from various prizes, one of the most exciting of which is a family offshore fishing trip.

Due to the fact SHAK aids canines from various areas, including East Durham, the fundraising will definitely make a difference to the productivity of the charity. Malcolm Riley, who is the general manager of the Business Protection, spoke of his passion for the fundraising event, saying:

“SHAK does an incredible job taking on people’s unwanted dogs and doesn’t have them put down. They will home them for life in kennels if they have to.”
