Pet Rescue Centers across the UK have appealed for financial support during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – and a new initiative means it’s really easy for you to help. Does your dog know how to hit it? If so, this might just be the ticket to help raise funds …

Peter Purves, the iconic voice of Crufts, and pet supplement company, Lintbells, have joined forces to launch the national #RescueYourRescue campaign. They hope to raise £ 250,000 to protect the future of animal shelters through donations, adoptions and a fun social media naming game where all you have to do is say hello to your dog and name five more dog owners to try it out too.

Many centers rely heavily on donations from the public, charity store sales and regular visits to fund their care for vulnerable dogs and cats awaiting adoption. But, as lockdown regulations continue, these relief homes are finally suffering.

Peter Purves explains, “Pet rescue charities across the country are supporting the welfare of animals that need our help the most. In these difficult circumstances, I call on animal lovers to work together to support these brilliant centers and the crucial work they do. To do.

“Every donation makes a difference, so give what you can and help spread the word by getting involved in the social media campaign using #RescueYourRescue.”

What can you do to help?

Also commenting on the campaign, Laura Moore from RSPCA says, “We are an independent local branch of the RSPCA, so we have to raise our own funds to run our animal center and take care of the animals in our care.

“This is normally done through our fundraising events and income from our charity stores, but with the current COVID-19 crisis, we have had to close our stores and cancel scheduled events and activities, which has had a devastating effect on our funds. We were also forced to close our animal center and canceled any potential adoptions. ”
