Worthing and District Animal Rescue Service (WADARS) has been given a helping hand to support the growing demands of its services with a £500 donation from Petplan.
Each month, Petplan randomly selects one of its registered animal charities in a prize draw to receive £500.
This month’s recipient, WADARS, helps to improve wildlife issues by tending animals in need of rescue and rehoming cats and dogs whose owners are no longer able to care for them.
WADARS charity manager Julie Toben said: “At WADARS we rely entirely on the generous support from the public and the community it serves.
“We would not be able to carry out our essential work without that support, which is why we are so pleased we have received this generous £500 cheque from Petplan.
“The demand for our wildlife rescue service continues to grow as the public are becoming more aware of wildlife issues.
“As a result, we receive up to 50 telephone calls a day and our animal rescue officers make thousands of visits in the course of a year. This donation will help us to continue this valuable work.”
Acting head of marketing at Petplan Suzanne Cheadle said: “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.”
