Hampshire Labradors Lift £500
Labrador Life Line Trust wins the Petplan Charity Prize Draw
The Labrador Life Line Trust in Hook, Hampshire has won a valuable donation of £500 from the UK’s leading pet insurance provider, Petplan. The dog sanctuary plans to put the money towards veterinary bills for new dogs that come into the centre.
Ann Carter, Administrator for the Hook centre says, “Petplan’s support for the Labrador Life Line Trust has been fantastic. As well as this donation, every rehomed dog receives a free four week Petplan insurance voucher. We believe that insurance is an essential part of responsible pet ownership and that owners need to think of what would happen should they face an expensive veterinary bill.”
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.
