A DONATIONS boost to help less fortunate dogs in the country has been inspired by a huge surge in pet staycations across Scotland.

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

A group of four-legged friends were unleashed on Loch Lomond’s private dog beach as Argyll Holidays launched its new partnership which will see them raise a minimum of £2,000 in the next year for the Scottish SPCA.

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.

Holidaymakers are barking mad for dog-friendly staycations within the UK, with over 9,000 pooches visiting Argyll Holidays since 2014.

The holiday park operator has seen a 56% increase in dog holidays in the last four years, and is encouraging pet owners to take a paws and think about dogs that aren’t as fortunate as their own.
