Just For Dogs Rescue and Rehoming Centre wins the Petplan Charity Prize Draw
'Just for Dogs' Rescue and Rehoming Centre has won a valuable donation of £500 from the UK's largest pet insurance provider, Petplan. The centre is a small voluntary organisation that relies totally on fund-raising, donations and sponsorship, to help run and rehome approximately 200 dogs a year.
"We are so delighted to have won this money from Petplan", says Margaret Smith, the Centre Manager.
"We were struggling to make ends meet, but with a donation of this size we can put the money towards maintenance, like heating oil for the central heating. Covering expenses such as this allows us to focus on caring for the dogs at the centre and provide them with neutering, spaying and veterinary treatment."
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.
