Hampole Animal Centre wins £500 from Petplan
Mount Pleasant Kennels, in Hampole, Doncaster, has won a valuable £500 donation from the UK's largest pet insurance provider, Petplan.
The local rescue centre provides shelter and veterinary care for sick, injured, stray and abandoned dogs in the surrounding area.
"We are completely surprised and delighted to have won the Petplan Prize draw." said Malcolm Hepworth, Centre Manager at Mount Pleasant Kennels. "This prize money will be a big help towards veterinary care for the dogs that come to the centre needing veterinary treatment."
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 Mount Pleasant Kennels, they do a fantastic job caring for dogs 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 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.
