New partnership to support abandoned animals in Edinburgh
Insurance provider Petplan has announced a new partnership with Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home to support animal rehoming.
Through the partnership, Petplan will offer four weeks of free pet insurance to rehomed animals, giving new owners peace of mind that financial help is available, and allowing the charity to generate additional funds.
Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home works with the Police and Local Authorities to rescue, reunite and rehome stray and abandoned dogs and cats. Founded in 1883, the centre has an open intake policy, accepting any dog or cat and working tirelessly to rehome them.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Petplan, who are renowned for their top-class pet insurance, to offer a free initial cover period to animals rehomed from us here at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home,” commented CEO Lindsay Fyffe-Jardine.
”We were pleased to be able to open our doors again to rehoming and are happy to know that all the animals going off to their forever homes have the insurance they need, providing reassurance to our rehoming customers.”
James Barnes, head of sales and partnership at Petplan, added: “Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home do fantastic work finding new homes for vulnerable animals. We are very happy to be working in partnership with them to provide the best start possible as these animals settle into their new surroundings.
“With Petplan insurance in place, adopters can concentrate on getting to know their new companion, safe in the knowledge that financial help is available to cover the cost of any unexpected veterinary treatment as they start their adventure together.”
