While the event may have been virtual, the Petplan and ADCH Animal Charity Awards 2020 were all about the hands-on dedication of those who help and care for animals.
The animal charity finalists knew they were in the running for an award but what they didn’t know was that each would receive £500 from Petplan Charitable Trust (PPCT).
The awards were hosted by actor Anthony Head who joked that he had grown whiskers especially for the event. Speaking from his home, he praised the ‘unsung heroes’ continuing to help and care for animals during ‘this hideous Covid-19 outbreak’. He also thanked Petplan customers who had made it possible for PPCT to donate over £200,000 to support animal charities during the pandemic.
Congratulations to all the animal charity finalists. The charities represented were Wood Green, Dogs Trust Glasgow, 8 Below Husky Rescue, Hope Rescue, Oak Tree Animals Rescue, National Animal Welfare Trust, Rain Rescue, Dogs on the Streets and Suffolk Owl Sanctuary.
