Glasgow Adoption Animal Centre wins £500 from Petplan
Cats Protection, Glasgow Adoption Centre, has won a valuable £500 donation from the UK's largest pet insurance provider, Petplan.
Opened in 1993, the Glasgow Adoption Centre, can house up to 220 cats, and relies on help from enthusiastic volunteers to help rescue and rehome thousands of abandoned cats and kittens in the Glasgow area.
"We were completely surprised and delighted to have won the Petplan Charity Prize draw," said Centre Manager Andy Currie.
"As with most charities, we always need money to help provide the best care we can to the cats that come to the centre, and this £500 donation will really help with that."
Working with more rehoming charities than any other insurer, Petplan helps fund the care of thousands of homeless cats and dogs throughout the UK. They offer four weeks free insurance to every owner adopting pets through the shelters it supports and also offers free insurance vouchers to visitors and supporters of the charities. Each month a prize draw is held from all the insurance vouchers issued and one charity benefits from the prize fund.
Isabella von Mesterhazy, Head of Marketing at Petplan says, "We are pleased to be able to provide this donation to Cats Protection's Glasgow Adoption Centre, they do a fantastic job caring for cats in the community. We also understand what a difficult time it can be rehoming an animal and are glad to offer new owners 4 weeks free cover to give them extra peace of mind during the first few weeks of their pet's life in a new environment. Having your pet insured is an important part of taking care of its future health."
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.
