A animal charity in Dorset is appealing to the public to bring joy to a rescue dog by donating a box of goodies.
Margaret Green Animal Rescue in Blandford is asking the public to fill a shoebox to give to rescue dogs at Christmas.
Louise Keeling, who works for the charity, said: "This time of year is always difficult for us. We see an increase in animals coming into our care during the festive season and less people looking to give a rescued pet a forever home.
“If you would prefer to make a shoe box for a cat or chicken, or a larger animal such as a horse, pony or sheep, we have all of these animals in rescue at the moment and many more."
The public are invited to drop off their shoeboxes at either Margaret Green Animal Rescue Centre, Lincoln Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre for dogs and Church Knowle Animal Sanctuary and Visitor Centre is just behind Corfe Castle, near Wareham.
