Help Dog Charities at Christmas
This year why not do some of your Christmas shopping from one of the animal charity websites. Not only can you buy gifts for your dogs and loved ones but you can also purchase your Xmas cards, wrapping paper and Christmas crackers.
Many charities supplement their donation income with money raised via their charity shops. There are also schemes where charities specifically request toys, equipment and donations as Christmas presents for the animals in their care.
View our list for great Christmas cards and gifts that you can purchase online while also helping dogs and dog related charities.
Here some of the ones we have found.
