Cleveleys charity Homeless Hounds and the Home Truths team joined forces to sleep with Homeless Hounds rescue dogs in their kennels, to raise money for the charity.
We took part in a variety of challenges that included eating dog food, dog biscuits and bobbing for dog treats, to encourage donations from the public and Homeless Hounds supporters, via a live stream on the Homeless hounds Facebook page, throughout the evening.
Once the challenges had drawn to a close, the Homeless Hounds volunteers and the Home Truths team were partnered up with a rescue dog in their kennel, and after much excitement from the dog’s everyone bedded down for the evening.
Catherine Byfield, Sales Manager at Home Truths Estate and Lettings Agent, said: “Homeless Hounds is the Home Truth’s charity of the year. All of the team own dogs and together we want to help to raise as much money as we can for this amazing charity and to help these wonderful dogs find their forever homes.
“We were delighted to be invited to join the volunteers on the big Homeless Hounds Sleepover and to spend the night with these wonderful dogs in their kennels. The team all threw themselves into the dog trials and I found myself eating dog food and dog biscuits, but it was all worthwhile to help to raise as much money as we could!
“It was a special experience cuddling up with the dogs and we all enjoyed walking them in the morning in our pyjamas! We look forward to many more fundraising events with this inspirational team of volunteers.”
