Massive boost for dog assistance charity
A CHARITY working to provide assistance dogs to injured veterans has received a Â£35,000 boost.
Hounds For Heroes, run by Clanfield war veteran Allen Parton, has received the cash from Pets at Home.
It follows a nationwide fundraising drive involving more than 230 pet grooming rooms across the country.
The cash will help support two trainee assistance dogs.
Sarah Harold, office co-ordinator at the Petersfield charity, added: ‘Support on this scale really does send such a positive message to those serving Queen and country that folk at home really do care about them.
‘At this stage every single penny makes such a huge impact on and difference to our work.’
