Local RSPCA branch wins £500
The Halifax & Huddersfield District Branch wins the Petplan Charity Prize Draw
The RSPCA, Halifax & Huddersfield District Branch has won a valuable £500 donation from the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider, Petplan.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) actively promotes animal welfare; it’s Halifax and Huddersfield branch is one of many branches across the nation, which is self-funded and relies on the generosity of the public to raise money to help treat and care for thousands of animals each year.
”We are really delighted to have won this money from Petplan”, says Adele Garbinskas, Deputy Manager of the branch.
“Having recently expanded, so that we now include the Huddersfield area, we are now seeing an increase in the number of pets that need rehoming. We aim to use the money to continue caring for and rehoming animals, ensuring we offer the best animal welfare possible.”
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 plan any unforeseen veterinary costs.”
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.
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.
