The York Road based dog rehoming centre continues to receive record numbers of requests from members of the public needing to hand over their beloved pets due to the cost-of-living crisis, as well as working closely with local dog wardens to help rehome an increasing number of stray and abandoned dogs in the area.
Here we get to go behind the scenes, meet some of the wonderful pooches who are looking for their forever homes and celebrate the many successful adoptions throughout June.
Three-year-old Bulldog Frank loves relaxing with his handlers in the centre's living room. It has been designed to look like a normal living room to get the dogs used to the items they will encounter in their next home. Photo: Dogs Trust

9. Brownies visit
The rehoming centre was visited by a pair of younger supporters. Nylah and Yafeh from 61st Leeds Brownies have been raising money for the rehoming centre dogs by selling homemade doggy treats. They raised £35 and as well as earning their charity badge, they got a special behind the scenes tour of the centre to see how their donation would be used. Photo: Dogs Trust
