North Devon MP Nick Harvey has joined the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, the Dogs Trust, to launch its annual Christmas campaign.

Attending an event in Parliament, Nick welcomed the Dogs Trust’s initiative to encourage people to think carefully before buying a dog during the festive season.

The organisation is this year celebrating the 35th Anniversary of its iconic slogan: ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.’

“I am delighted to be supporting the Dogs Trust,” said Mr Harvey.

“Their message is as important as ever. While a dog for Christmas might seem like a cute and trouble-free gift at the time, as a dog owner I know that it’s a big commitment to make.”
