With 50 percent of UK households owning a pet, and a staggering 17million cats and dogs sharing our homes with us, it’s no wonder that we Brits have won a reputation as a nation of animal lovers.
Our cats and dogs might be lavished with love and attention all year round, fed the finest foods and given a warm spot in our beds, but sadly there are many animals in the UK that aren’t quite as lucky.
For many down-on-their-luck animals, both wildlife and former pets, animal charities provide an incredibly vital service, offering food, shelter and medical attention, as well as the opportunity to find a safe new home.
With the launch of our new pet insurance policy here at Adrian Flux, we want to give something back to the people who look after the nation’s animals by raising some much-needed funds for our local RSPCA Wildlife Centre in East Winch, Norfolk.
Between June and November this year, Adrian Flux will be giving £5 directly to the RSPCA for every pet insurance quote we give out – helping to support a centre that has become renowned for its care of seals and other local Norfolk wildlife.
Gerry Bucke, general manager at Adrian Flux, said: “Our pet insurance might only apply to cats and dogs, but we want to do something to help all animals, big and small, and have decided this donation is the best way to do it.
“By coming to us for a quote on pet insurance, you can be sure that you’re not only benefitting your four-legged friends at home, but some of Norfolk’s most vulnerable wildlife too.”
The Wildlife Centre in Norfolk was opened in Docking in 1988 in the wake of a viral outbreak amongst the North Sea seal population, later moving to its current East Winch home in 1992.
Decades on, the centre continues to treat hundreds of orphaned, sick and injured seals each year, as well as thousands of local and migratory birds and other local wildlife.
Alison Charles, Manager at RSPCA East Winch, said: “We are thrilled that local company Adrian Flux thought of us and want to give us this generous donation.
“The money will be an incredible support to our work rehabilitating seals, birds and other wildlife and means we will hopefully be able to save the lives of many more animals, and care for them until they are ready to be returned back to the wild.”
With donations already coming in, we’ll be sure to keep you up to date in the coming months on just how much we’re raising for the East Winch RSPCA, and what a difference it’s making to their work.
