Dogs Trust welcomed ‘pawlitical’ guest David Linden to its Uddingston rehoming centre.
The Glasgow East MP was given a tour of the centre before chatting to manager Sandra Downie about concerns over how the cost-of-living crisis and the impact of the pandemic affect pups in need.
Linden met doggie residents and cosied up to little dog Sassy who will soon be leaving the centre for her forever home.
Linden said: “I really enjoyed visiting Glasgow Rehoming Centre and meeting not only their dogs, but also the excellent team who take care for them, and work so hard to find every dog a new home.
“Dogs Trust goes above and beyond for each individual dog, with some better suited to a foster home while they await their new families.
“One of the best parts of a great visit was hearing about the charity’s Home from Home Foster Scheme and how people can get involved.
“I would encourage anyone who is willing and able to look after a dog on a temporary basis to get in touch with Dogs Trust to find out more.”
Sandra added: “It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Linden to our rehoming centre again and to chat about how things are going, particularly with the current cost of living challenges we face, and how they are affecting us at Dogs Trust.
“It was great to have the opportunity to discuss fostering and how grateful we are to our foster carers for their amazing support.”
