Petplan Charitable Trust

Posted byMartin Pople | Charity news

This year the Petplan Charitable Trust is celebrating 30 years of promoting the health and welfare of animals. Thanks to the generosity of pet owners who give a small donation to the Trust when they take out pet insurance, it has helped over 300 charities and awarded grants totalling almost £16m. 

The Trust supports large and small organisations in the UK and beyond, funding animal welfare organisations with their critical work on the ground and also supporting advancements in veterinary medicine.

At BCDH we are very pleased and proud to say that the Petplan Charitable Trust has long supported our work, making a real impact on the welfare of animals in our care.

Since 2005 donations of nearly £67,000 have helped to meet the costs of educational activities for young people and schools, our emergency veterinary assistance scheme for those on low incomes, live-saving drugs and medical equipment and a state-of-the-art puppy unit in the Roy Hulbert kennel block. This year, a substantial grant from the Petplan Trust will be used to completely reconfigure and refurbish our vet suite enabling us to treat more ill and injured animals. 

So on behalf of the BCDH team, and of course the many thousands of animals who have benefitted from the Petplan Charitable Trust’s generosity over the past 30 years, thank you.
