Dogs and Cats in Need Benefit from Tesco Bank Support

24/05/2017

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home received a welcome boost this week thanks to a delivery containing of hundreds of pet care products donated by Tesco Bank.

The much-need donation followed the Home’s participation in Tesco Bank’s Pet Roadshow on 28 April as part of National Pet Month. It contained a variety of essential dog and cat care supplies including food bowls, litter bags, dog and cat food, and a variety of treats.

Nicola Gunn, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, described the importance of the support that businesses like Tesco Bank can offer to the city’s stray and unwanted pets;

“Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home provides an important service to Edinburgh and the Lothians by working with police and council services to rescue, reunite and rehome its lost and abandoned dogs and cats. In the absence of any government or lottery funding, we rely on the support of both local and national businesses like Tesco Bank to continue in this mission.

“With over 100 dogs and cats on site at any one time, and thousands coming through our door each year, the annual cost of this service has now reached nearly £1million. Corporate support is vital in meeting these costs – and is welcomed through gifts in kind, monetary donations and corporate volunteering.”

Mark Airey, Commercial Director (Insurance) Tesco Bank, said;

“At Tesco Bank we are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership and were delighted to recently work with the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home at our Pet Roadshow in Edinburgh. As a little thank you and to help support the compassionate and valuable work that they do, we are thrilled to present a donation of pet care products to the home. We hope that through this donation, we can help to positively impact on the lives of stray and unwanted animals.”
