New 'DoggyLottery' to raise funds for rescue centres
Sixty per cent of funds raised from the DoggyLottery will go to dog rescue centres in the UK.
Entrants will have the chance of being one of 20 guaranteed winners.

A new 'DoggyLottery' to raise funds for dog rescue centres in the UK will launch on Saturday (4 July). Every four weeks, five different rescue centres will be connected to the lottery, providing much-needed funds – particularly during COVID-19 – and providing vital online exposure.

A weekly game costs £1.50 and entrants will have the chance of being one of 20 guaranteed winners. A massive 60 per cent of the raised funds will go towards the dog rescue centres, more than double that donated by leading lottery companies to charitable causes.
