Dorset Animal Rescue wins £500 Donation

The Margaret Green Animal Rescue wins the Petplan Charity Prize Draw

The Margaret Green Animal Rescue, in Wareham Dorset, has won a valuable £500 donation from the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider, Petplan.

Margaret Green Animal Rescue is the oldest animal welfare charity in Dorest, and helps shelter a wide range of animals including rabbits, mice, cats, dogs, ducks, and horses, who have been abandonded or mistreated.

With three thriving centres across Dorset and Devon, staff at Margaret Green work tirelessly to rescue and rehome over 1,000 animals each year.

”We are really delighted to have won this money from Petplan,” says Ellie Makin, Shelter Manager of Margaret Green Animal Rescue. “During this financially difficult time the money will be very welcome and will help pay for veterinary treatments for all our animals here in our care, for things such as vaccinations and medicines."

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 four weeks free insurance to every owner adopting pets through the shelters it supports and also offers 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 an animal 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 plan 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.
