Petplan Charitable Trust has awarded several grants to Blue Cross in recent years. One was to help purchase and refit a brand new van for the charity’s Newport Rehoming and Advice Unit.

“Last year, the Newport unit saw over 100 dogs rehomed – using a small, old, borrowed van to transfer just a couple of the dogs each time,” explains Victoria Kingsman at Blue Cross. “It is expected that this new, larger, modified van will significantly increase efficiencies so that many more needy dogs can now be helped.”

Newport is an area noted for relatively high numbers of stray animals. The centre helps more than 300 pets a year.
