(press release distribution) Over three quarters of dogs will be showing appreciation for their human mums on Sunday 18th March, with a Mother’s Day card.
That’s according to greetings card company, Charity Greetings.
Together with Dogs Trust, they carried out a survey of dog owners which revealed that 61% of dogs already send Mother’s Day cards and a further 17% are planning to this year.
Craig Hartzel, founder of Charity Greetings said: “This just shows what a nation of dog lovers we are – most people embrace their pets as part of the family.
“And what’s better is many of these Mother’s Day cards are being bought from CharityGreetings.com which means every greeting card sent raises funds for UK charities.”
Alexandra Goldstein, Digital Marketing Office at Dogs Trust said, “Our supporters tell us every day that they consider their dogs to be family members, so this comes as no surprise! Every year, we also receive thousands of cards for our sponsor dogs on special occasions, so we know that people still really value a proper paper card and enjoy the knowledge that they’re helping dogs in need whenever they send one through Charity Greetings.”
Charity Greetings works with UK charities to help them sell greetings cards all year round, rather than exclusively at Christmas.
Dogs Trust is the UKs largest dog welfare charity and relies on the generosity of the public to carry out its work
Each year it cares for approximately 16,000 dogs across its 17 rehoming centres and never puts a healthy dog down.
People can help support this work by buying their greeting cards from the charity all year round, at http://greetingcards.dogstrust.org.uk
In the UK alone we spend £1.39 billion on greeting cards, that’s on average 31 cards each a year.
