Charity volunteers have been working hard to keep the dogs warm during the cold weather.

Founder Stephen Wylie said: “Obviously the cold and snow makes things a lot more difficult for us and the cold must be so hard for the dogs,but we try our best to keep them warm. That’s why we are so grateful for all of the bedding donations we get.

“One little Staffy called Cheech actually climbs under his blankets and sleeps that way.

“Things like that always touch me and remind me that these dogs must have had a home and comforts at some point.”

During the day it was playtime, with some of the dogs loving the snow, while others didn’t take so well to the conditions!
