“We’re delighted to have received a £10,000 grant from PetPlan to help fund our Outreach clinics,” says Anna O’Dell, Fundraising & Communications Manager at Bristol Animal Rescue Centre.

“We’ve been helping, healing and homing Bristol’s vulnerable animals since 1887, and our outreach services are a vital part of the work that we do by offering free and low-cost treatment to pets in two local areas.  We’re grateful to have this support from Petplan Charitable Trust and will continue to develop our services, ensuring that more animals get the treatment they need.”

According to the charity, the clinics help as many as 3,000 animals and their families every year. This vital service helps to keep pets and their owners together.

The charity also rehomes animals and is committed to a non-selective intake policy. This means they usually have a range of pets available for adoption such as budgies, ferrets and rabbits, as well as the more usual cats and dogs.
