Following their successful A dog is for life campaign last Christmas, Dogs Trust have created another memorable campaign this year. Give Socks Not Dogs has been created to raise awareness for the high number of dogs which have been given as Christmas presents, to unprepared owners. Dogs Trusts are therefore encouraging people to give socks this Christmas, rather than a dog. As part of the campaign, Dogs Trusts have completely rebranded and become Socks Trusts for the festive period!
As part of their campaign, horrifying statistics have been released which reveal 3,400 calls were made to the Dogs Trust alone in a 30 day period following Christmas. That’s 113 calls a day about unwanted, defenseless dogs.
