A CHARITY which helps save rescue dogs from being put down has been given £500 by Pets at Home in Rugby.

Rugby Pawprints has saved more than 90 dogs’ lives in the past year by finding homes for animals destined to be destroyed. When a stray dog goes into a pound it only has seven days to be claimed before it is either rehomed or put down.

The donation will go towards Rugby Pawprints’ services, which include homing, neutering, chipping and vaccinating dogs before they are moved on to a new home.

All the foster dogs have their food, vets, bowls, baskets and other equipment paid for.
