Students support abandoned dogs

24th January 2020

Animal Welfare students from Solihull College & University Centre recently visited Birmingham Dogs Home to deliver Christmas gifts and money raised at a college event.

The Christmas Fayre, held at the College’s Blossomfield Campus, raised an impressive £292.34 with students selling Christmas wreaths, hot chocolate, animal food and toys. The students then delivered the gifts which consisted of a special dinner and toy for each animal to Birmingham Dogs Home.

Birmingham Dogs Home can look after up to 150 abandoned dogs at a time. Rachel Frost, Digital Marketing Officer at the home stated: “We can’t thank the students and their teachers enough for their very generous donations. The students always love to come down and learn about what we do and hear just how valuable their donations are. Our dogs appreciate every donation given to them.”

Claire Powell, Head of Animal Welfare & Veterinary Nursing at the College commented: “We have been involved in the Christmas appeal for a number of years now. The Level 1 students have worked really hard and we are proud of how they have supported this great cause.”
