Puppies in Christmas stockings hung on a mantlepiece

A puppy for Christmas may be the best gift you can imagine. A puppy will grow and so will its love for you – a lifetime companion. Not a gift to forget about.

If you have a passion for animals and the commitment to care for it then a puppy for Christmas may be for you.  It is not for everyone however – Dogs Trust reports a 54% increase in dogs being handed in over Christmas and the New Year period.  It is essential to know the commitment of caring for any animal – not just a dog – before even considering buying it as a gift for a Christmas.

If you enjoy caring for animals have you ever considered a career in Animal Care? Why not give a gift to the animals this year and volunteer at different sites over the Christmas period and assist with that 54% increase?
