Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Old Windsor has been given a helping hand thanks to a £500 donation from Petplan, the UK’s number one pet insurance provider.
Battersea Old Windsor is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming animals, and operates on a non-selective intake policy, offering dogs and cats of all breeds and ages expert care.
Melissa Clarke, communications officer at Battersea, said: “The donation will be used to maintain the high quality of care the dogs and cats receive at our Old Windsor home. As the charity does not receive any Government funding, the money will make a big difference to the centre.”
Ingrid Wakefield, acting head of marketing at Petplan, added: “At Petplan we work with more than 1,200 animal charities – more than any other insurer. We understand the challenges animal charities face and provide four weeks’ free insurance to anyone rehoming a pet from one of our animal charities.”
“Pet insurance can help pet owners cover the cost of unexpected veterinary treatment and provides reassurance for adopters during those precious first weeks while an adopted animal settles into its new home. It also offers peace of mind for charities; uninsured animals are more likely to be returned to the rehoming centre if they are ill or injured. Having your pet insured is an important part of taking care of its future health.”
