Donations from holidaymakers raise £1 million for Dogs Trust

Cottages.com and Hoseasons are celebrating raising £1 million for the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, Dogs Trust.

The funds were raised from donations from holidaymakers across the country via bookings made at dogstrustholidays.co.uk with the charity receiving a donation equal to 10% of each accommodation booking value.

Delivered in partnership with cottages.com and Hoseasons, more than 48,000 properties including cottages, lodges and boats are available to choose from at dogstrustholidays.co.uk, with options to suit pet owners and those travelling without pets alike.

The partnership has been nurtured over the past 15 years to support the ongoing care to the thousands of dogs in the charity’s rehoming centres across the country.

Dogs Trust CEO, Adrian Burder, said: “We’ve worked with cottages.com and Hoseasons for over 15 years through Dogs Trust Holidays because we believe that holidays are for the whole family, including those of the four-legged variety.

The vital funds raised from customer’s bookings help us to keep tails wagging at our 21 Rehoming Centres across the UK and Ireland and on their behalf,  we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has helped us to reach phenomenal total.”

Sally Henry at cottages.com and Hoseasons, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Dogs Trust to have helped connect members of the public who would like to support the charity with amazing holiday experiences. Together we have been able to generate fantastic awareness and very worthwhile funds.”
