Animal welfare charity Blue Cross has enlisted some four-legged fundraisers, kitting out dogs with coats featuring contactless terminals so that Brits can make donations with a 'pat and tap'.

PayPal Here terminals worn by 'tap dogs' Maverick the border collie, Cherry the lurcher, Ralph the old English sheepdog cross, and Labradors Rosie and Smudge let animal lovers make £2 donations with a tap of their contactless cards.

Tracy Genever, Blue Cross head, education services, Blue Cross, says: “With today’s increasingly ‘cashless’ society, it made sense to introduce a contactless option to those wishing to give to Blue Cross."
