The Cats Protection wins £500

The Cats Protection wins the Petplan Charity Prize Draw

The Cats Protection, in Macclesfield, Cheshire, has won a valuable £500 donation from the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider, Petplan.

Cats Protection is one of the UK’s oldest and largest feline charity, actively helping to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome cats and kittens in need, providing them with shelter and veterinary attention.

After years of development, the Cats Protection now has 30 permanent shelters across the UK and a large voluntary network of fosters, which includes over 5,000 dedicated volunteers who contribute to the welfare of cats.

”It’s absolutely fantastic to have won this money from Petplan. We don’t often win anything so this was a lovely surprise.” says Lyn Hooper, Co-ordinator of Cats Protection in Macclesfield. “The money will be used towards our ongoing vet bills and will enable us to help more cats in need that we probably would not have been able to help without it.”

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 this offer is also extended 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.

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.
