Canine rescue centre wins £500 donation

Tuesday, 1st March 2011

A donation to the Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue could be used to buy dog food for the animals it cares for.

The rescue centre was awarded £500 from pet insurance provider, Petplan, as part of an annual donation scheme.

This is the second time the rescue centre has been awarded the donation, having also won it six years ago.

Fiona Brightly, manager of the rescue home, said: "We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded this cheque by Petplan. We just can't believe that we've won this donation for the second time.

"The money could not have come at a timelier occasion, and will help us purchase a drying unit which will help us take care of the more nervous dogs we care for."

The Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre was established in 2003. It works to rescue, care for and re-home dogs that are stray, maltreated, and unwanted.
