National Lottery Community Fund supports CPSS

We’d like to say a massive THANK YOU to the National Lottery Community Fund for supporting our Community Pet Support Scheme (CPSS).

The funding will cover the cost of supporting 10 CPSS clients for six months which is fantastic news for us.  It will enable us to continue supporting the most vulnerable in our communities at this time and ensure they don’t become further isolated. The scheme is free of charge to our clients and we rely on donations and grants to fund it.

During the pandemic the service our Animal Care Assistants provide is even more vital, helping to look after the mental and physical health of the client and their pet.  Seeing a (socially distanced) familiar friendly face gives a real boost to our clients and staff are also checking that clients have pet supplies, veterinary medication and making sure that pets are well-exercised and healthy. 

The funding really does make a huge difference and means that we can continue to keep people and their beloved pets together. We’re so grateful to have received the funding and a huge round of applaws goes to all the National Lottery players, it really does mean the world to us.
