Vétoquinol donates over £9,000 to Blue Cross at Crufts12 Mar 2012
Sick and homeless pets in the care of Blue Cross received a welcome boost at Crufts last week thanks to a donation of £9,332.51 from Vétoquinol.
Raised through sales of Propalin – the UK’s number one treatment for urinary incontinence in dogs – the money will help fund our vital work for needy pets and horses at animal hospitals and rehoming centres nationwide.
Over 65,000 bottles of Propalin were sold in aid of Blue Cross between July and December 2011, with 18p donated for every 100ml bottle and 7p donated for every 30ml bottle.
Blue Cross chief executive Kim Hamilton said: “We are extremely grateful to Vétoquinol for this generous donation and to all the vets who supported the initiative to raise over £9,000 for the sick and homeless animals in our care. We rely on fundraising efforts like these to work towards our vision of giving every pet a healthy life in a happy home.”
The cheque was presented at our stand at Crufts on Friday 9 March by Chris Dawe from Vétoquinol and Caitríona Mullin, Propalin’s Product Manager.
Caitriona said: “We are delighted to be able to help such a fantastic organisation as Blue Cross. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the vets who purchased Propalin and in turn contributed to the support we can give to Blue Cross in their everyday efforts to improve the lives of sick and unwanted animals.”
Blue Cross receives no government funding so we rely on support from companies like Vétoquinol and donations from the public to enable us to provide vital services for pets in need.
