    £500 Donation Will Feed an Influx of Homeless Kittens

    2016 has already got off to a paw-some start for our cattery at The Mayhew Animal Home thanks to a £500 donation win from Petplan, the UK’s No.1 pet insurance provider. This donation has come at an ideal time, after we have seen an influx of kittens being brought into our shelter due to the milder winter bringing the kitten season earlier.

    Each month, Petplan randomly selects one of its registered animal charities in a prize draw to receive a cheque to put towards helping the animals in its care, and with so many hungry kittens, like Peanut, Butter and Jelly below, to feed, we were very grateful to be chosen for this donation.

    Our Head of Animal Welfare, Gillian Notton, said: “It was a big event when we found out that we’d won. The mild winter meant kitten season came much earlier than usual and lots have turned up at our door.”

    “With so many hungry mouths to feed, we’re very grateful for this donation and we plan to put it towards cat food and housing for our new arrivals.”

    Petplan’s Head of Marketing, Isabella von Mesterhazy, says: “At Petplan we work with over 1,200 animal charities, more than any other pet insurer. We understand the challenges animal welfare organisations face and provide four weeks’ free insurance to anyone rehoming a pet from one of our animal charities.”

    Last year we rehomed over 500 dogs and cats and helped over 1,300 animals in the community, tackling welfare issues before they happen.
