Work is coming on nicely at the new Sensory Garden in Lanarkshire, which is making fantastic progress since it started earlier this year. 

A 56% upsurge in families taking their dogs with them on staycations across Scotland will result in leading animal charity, the Scottish SPCA, enjoying a new wave of donations.

A surge in pet staycations across Scotland has inspired a cash boost to help less fortunate dogs in Scotland.

We are encouraging pet owners to take a paws and think about dogs that aren’t as fortunate as their own.

For every pampered pooch that stays with Argyll Holidays, a donation is made to the Scottish SPCA to help keep dogs safe across Scotland.

Ross Coutts, Digital Marketing Executive, said: “Dogs are an important part of the family - and that means they’re part of the family holiday".

“We partnered up with the Scottish SPCA just over a year ago to promote our dog friendly breaks and give something back to furry friends that might not have the opportunity to go on holiday this year - It's fantastic to see the Sensory Garden taking shape.

“At Argyll Holidays, we’re welcoming more and more dogs to stay every year and we make sure that they have a pawsome time, with special dog bowls and some of the most spectacular dog-walking routes for them to enjoy.”

Sharon Comrie, Superintendent at the Scottish SPCA said: “We’re delighted to have this exciting partnership with Argyll Holidays.

"Dogs really are part of the family and it’s great that they are so welcome to stay at the holiday parks.

“We don’t receive any government or lottery funding which means we rely on the public to be able to continue our work rescuing and rehoming animals in desperate need of our help. Partnerships like this help us fund vital projects and day-to-day costs of running our rehoming centres.”
