The Dogs Trust recently launched their new TV advert. Here’s what they have to say about it.
“Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity recently launched their new televised advert. This is to raise awareness of the plight of the thousands of unwanted dogs in the UK. Despite being hailed as a nation of animal lovers we receive a call every 15 minutes from a member of the public looking to give up their dog. The advert, voiced by actor Martin Clunes, depicts a rescue dog and his balloon counterpart embarking on a dramatic journey to find a loving owner.”
Dogs Trust recently launched their new TV advert called Little Balloon Doggy. You can watch it here.
One such dog hoping to embark on a journey to a loving home is Lolabelle from Dogs Trust Ballymena. Lolabelle is a seven-year-old Border Collie cross. She has been at the Rehoming Centre for more than a year and remains overlooked by potential dog owners.
Oonagh Phillips, Rehoming Centre Manager of Dogs Trust Ballymena, said:
“Dogs are now available via the internet at the click of a button. Because of this, people often buy them online on a whim, just as they would a pair of shoes. They quite often give little consideration to the lifetime commitment involved in dog ownership. We hope our advert will not only raise awareness of the number of dogs looking for homes but will encourage people to consider rehoming one of the thousands of fantastic rescue dogs in our care.”
“Lolabelle is great with other dogs, particularly those her own size, and loves going for walks. A lady of leisure, she feels most at home in an enclosed garden where she can get lots of space and enjoy her own company. She would be best suited to owners who live in a quiet, rural setting.”
“She is a very active dog who enjoys exploring, knows all her basic commands and is house-trained. Despite her lively character, Lolabelle is shy around new people but after a few visits will be your friend for life.”
