Give a dog a festive treat

Bolsover District Council is asking residents to spare a thought for stray and unwanted animals this Christmas and donate food and treats.

The council sets up the annual scheme for people to donate tinned pet food, biscuits, treats, toys and dried food to help feed and entertain unclaimed stray dogs and other animals at sanctuaries used by the council.

Decorated collection containers are at each of the Councils’ Contact Centres in Bolsover, Clowne, Shirebrook and South Normanton until Friday 23rd December.

l If you wish to be put on the Council’s dog re-homing list, then visit or tel 01246 242424.
