West Lothian animal welfare experts appeal for Best Friends House


Animal welfare experts are calling for a home for a pair of lovable best friends in their care.

Angel and Tilly are currently staying at the Dogs Trust West Calder.

And their carers say Angel, a 14-year-old Border Collie, and Tilly, an 11-year-old Shih Tzu, have been lifelong friends and love nothing more than spending time together.

A Dogs Trust spokeswoman said: “Although they have independent personalities, the couple are happiest when together, whether playing a hunt in the garden or jumping in the car to go on an adventure in the woods.

“Angel and Tilly like to make friends with everyone and are polite to the four-legged friends they meet on their walks. They are very affectionate girls who like to spend time with their masters and are not resistant to cuddling on the couch.

“As Angel and Tilly are inseparable, they are seeking relocation together.

“These golden girls have a lot of energy and would love to live in a house with a large, secure garden where they can do crafts and play together. As the girls prefer to be in the company of their owners, they would like their new family to be home almost all day to give them lots of fuss and attention.

If you think you could provide a home for Angel and Tilly or any of the 50 dogs currently available for rehoming, please contact the West Calder Rehoming Center on 01506 873459.

You can also follow Dogs Trust West Calder on Twitter @DT_WestCalder and Instagram @dogstrust_westcalder for regular updates on events and dogs available for repatriation.

West Calder Rehoming Center is currently recruiting volunteers to help with kennel cleaning, laundry, grounds maintenance, maintenance and greeting guests at the reception.

If you are interested in volunteering, please call the center or email volunteer coordinator Garry Lee at [email protected]

The center is also looking for new host families across Lothians and the Scottish Borders to join its Home from Home programme. If you could open your home to a foster dog or would like to find out more, please email [email protected]
