Veterinary Hospital Year announces it new Charity of the Year Fundraising Campaign
Every year Park View Veterinary Hospital in North Hykeham supports a charity that has a connection with its clients. For 2017 - 2018 Park View is delighted to announce it will be supporting Sturton by Stow Guinea Pig & Rabbit Rescue.
David Ashcroft, Clinical Director at Park View said, "We are proud to be supporting Sturton by Stow Guinea Pig and Rabbit Rescue this year. We have supported cat and dog charities over the last couple of years so it’s definitely time for our ‘furry friends’ to shine this year. We chose Sturton by Stow as they are a local charity, owned by Samantha Richardson and Ali Collingham, who with a team of volunteers, rely solely on donations to run their services. They have seen a surge in guinea pigs and rabbits finding their way to them over the last few months, many are just dumped, and a lot are poorly and malnourished. As a Veterinary Hospital we hope our fundraising efforts will support a programme of medical care, nutrition needs and a scheme for vaccination for their charges. Our fundraising will help them get fully fit and ready for new homes."
"Many Park View staff have guinea pigs and rabbits of their own at home and are looking forward to working with the Rescue. We believe leading an education programme on guinea pig and rabbit care will help people understand what they must think about before taking on a furry pet. As a practice we are members of the Rabbit Welfare Association and already promote best practice but helping Sturton directly will enable us to ‘make a difference’. Everyone can help us from popping something in the collecting tin on reception to the food collection bin, or attending one of our fundraising events through the year, we will be delighted to accept your donation."
Sturton by Stow Guinea Pig & Rabbit rescue spokesperson Samantha Richardson said, "We are over the moon that Park View have offered to fundraise for us this year. It will certainly help us get medical attention and nutritional needs to our poorly charges. It will also help raise our profile through advertising our services and promote the pets we have that are looking for homes. We look forward to working together to host some open sessions where we can bring along some of our charges to help educate families on the importance of care and the responsibility of owing a guinea pig or rabbit and find some of them a new home. We have lots of lovely pets looking for homes, please feel free to call us on 0790 243 2821 or message us on our facebook page www.facebook.com/sturtonbystowrescue"
