Absolutely the best thing you can do with a jar of peanut butter today

A pet charity is appealing for donations of PEANUT BUTTER for homeless dogs who wolf it down.

The abandoned pets are given the nutty spread as an occasional treat and for mental stimulation licking it out of toys.

Kellie Brooks, Blue Cross centre manager in Hertfordshire branch, said: “We help over 2,500 dogs each year across our rehoming centres, so we get through a fair few jars.

Tye the peanut butter loving dog. See MASONS story MNPEANUT; A pet charity is appealing for donations of PEANUT BUTTER for homeless dogs who go nuts for the sweet treat. Abandoned dogs in the care have found a taste for the nutty paste and enjoy it as an occasional eat and for mental stimulation licking it out of toys. However, Blue Cross warns people to check the ingredients carefully before they give peanut butter to pooches it can contain Xylitol - an artificial sweetener toxic to dogs. Kellie Brooks, centre manager at the Hertfordshire branch, said the dogs enjoy licking it out of toys and rawhides for entertainment.

Yummy!

“We really hope people will help spread the word about our appeal as it really benefits the dogs we care for, but like any treat, it should be given in moderation.

“Our dogs enjoy licking it out of Kongs and rawhides – it can keep them entertained for hours, which is a great way of keeping them occupied in kennels while they are waiting for new homes.”

Tye is a six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier who enjoys peanut butter and is looking for a new home in Hertfordshire.

But the charity is asking people to check the ingredients carefully and not donate peanut butter containing Xylitol – an artificial sweetener toxic to dogs.
