Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary wins the Petplan Charity Prize Draw

The Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary in Bury, Lancashire, has won a valuable donation of £500 from the UK’s largest pet insurance provider, Petplan. The animal sanctuary plans to put the money towards a training programme for their dog volunteers.

Neil Martin, Sanctuary Manager says, “Training our volunteers is very important to us at Bleakholt because it allows us to use volunteers for core duties so that we can reduces our costs and use this money to be reinvested into our long term future.”

“We are delighted to have won this money from Petplan especially in the current economic climate where money is in short supply,” says Mr Martin.

Petplan works with more rehoming charities than any other insurer to help fund the care of thousands of homeless cats and dogs. The company offers a cover note for four weeks free insurance to every owner adopting pets through the shelters it supports and also provides the free insurance voucher to visitors and supporters of the charities. Each month a prize draw is held from all the vouchers and cover notes issued and one charity benefits from the prize fund.

Alison Andrew, Marketing Manager for Petplan says, “We understand what a difficult time it can be rehoming a cat or dog and are glad to offer this extra peace of mind during the first few weeks of the animal’s life in a new environment. Having your pet insured is an important part of taking care of its future health and it also helps you to contain any unforeseen veterinary costs.”

Petplan is committed to aiding the valuable work that rehoming shelters do. Charities such as Battersea, Cats Protection, Blue Cross and Dogs Trust are just a few of those that have benefited.
