Burmese Cat Rescue Centre wins £500 from Petplan
The Burmese Cat Club Benevolent Fund based in Flitwick, Bedford has been awarded a £500 donation from the UK's largest pet insurance provider, Petplan.
The Burmese Cat Club Benevolent Fund is a small charity looking after Burmese cats in distress. It homes about 100 cats each year and several of these have on-going health problems such as diabetes.
Sue Chase, Honorary Security of The Burmese Cat Club Benevolent Fund said, "The Benevolent Fund currently spends approximately £5000 each year in supporting these cats in their new homes. We are incredibly grateful to Petplan for their generous award of £500 which will help fund the needy cats."
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 Mesterhàzy, Head of Marketing at Petplan says, "We are pleased to be able to provide this donation to The Burmese Cat Club, 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 four weeks free cover to give them this 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.
