“Thank you to Petplan Charitable Trust for giving Maria’s Animal Shelter a grant.

These costs eat into our maintenance fund and it is always a worry not knowing where the next payment is going to come from.

After routine vet bills, we then worry about the ill animals that always enter the shelter. These bills usually end up quite costly because scans and x-rays are often necessary to find the cause of the illness.”

According to Maria, the pair are best friends and love racing around the shelter and getting up to all sorts of mischief!
