South Shields store hoping to reach a target of 15,000 meals for homeless dogs
Animal lovers in South Shields are urging people to help them provide 15,000 meals for homeless dogs.
Pets at Home in South Shields has been running a campaign to help feed homeless dogs in shelters over the festive period.
Staff at the store were thrilled when by December 21, they had raised enough money to provide 10,000 50p Christmas dinners to the dogs in need.
Since then customers have continued to support the efforts and 14,000 meals have been donated.
