As you are tucking into your Christmas dinner spare a thought for these rescue dogs and the 365 Dogs Trust staff and volunteers who will be working on Christmas Day to care for them and make their stay as happy as possible.

This is how our staff and dogs will be preparing for the big day!

This year over 1,600 rescue dogs will be spending their Christmas Day at Dogs Trust Rehoming Centres rather than in a home of their own. Dogs Trust expect around 100 more to be handed over to the charity during the Christmas period despite the fact that Dogs Trust's slogan "A Dog is for Life, Not Just for Christmas" is 37 years old this year.
