THERE is some real puppy love in the air at a Warwickshire vets thanks to the fund-raising efforts of staff.
A pup has now set out on a journey which is one day set to change lives after Avonvale Veterinary Centres staff raised more than £2,000 for their 2018 dedicated charity, Dogs for Good.
Bronte, who was born in December, will spend the next year being trained to be an assistance dog with the funds raised by staff who completed events including cake sales, dog walks and Wolf Runs.
Dogs for Good trains assistance dogs to help people with health issues, who are in hospital or who have a disability.
Off the back of this fund-raising success, Avonvale has chosen another animal charity as its 2019 focus – Cats Protection.
The charity helps approximately 200,000 cats and kittens every year through its network of more than 250 volunteer-run branches and 36 centres.
Kieran O’Halloran, clinical director at Avonvale, said: “We are so proud that the team’s fund-raising efforts have helped Dogs for Good.
“Our staff are all thrilled that we can help change people’s lives by sponsoring these puppies, enabling them to make an unbelievable difference in people’s lives.
“We are now all extremely excited about our 2019 fund-raising and supporting the great work Cats Protection does.”
