The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home wins the Petplan Charity Prize Draw Rosemary Eggleston, Finance Manager of the Edinburgh Dogs and Cats Home with Carol Jones, Petplan Business DeveloperThe Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has won a valuable donation of £500 from the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider, Petplan. Rosemary Eggleston, Finance Manager of the dog and cat home says the money will go towards helping them continue to provide the animals with the necessary care and attention. "We are delighted to have been awarded this cheque by Petplan. The home is very busy at the moment with many dogs and cats looking for new homes, so we really need this money to enable us to give them a high level of care and any veterinary treatment they may need,” says Rosemary. The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is a charity run by a management committee and is a member of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes, taking in hundreds of stray and unwanted dogs and cats every year. Petplan works with more re-homing charities than any other insurer to help fund the care of thousands of homeless cats and dogs. The company offers a cover note for four weeks free insurance to every owner adopting pets through the shelters it supports and also provides the 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. Alison Andrew, Marketing Manager for Petplan says, “We understand what a difficult time it can be re-homing 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 contain any unforeseen veterinary costs.” Petplan is committed to aiding the valuable work that re-homing shelters do. Charities such as Battersea, Cats Protection, Blue Cross and Dogs Trust are just a few of those that have benefited.
