The global pandemic has had a huge impact on independent animal rescues in the UK, with many having to navigate through a difficult period of reduced income versus an increase in animals needing their services. Now that the furlough scheme has come to an end, 80% of these independent animal rescues expect the intake of dogs and puppies to increase.***
With a love of animals at its core and as an independent company, Arden Grange has given support to independent rescue centres with its annual charity drive for many years. The outstanding benefits of Arden Grange naturally hypoallergenic pet foods can help with common ailments found in rescue dogs and cats arriving at shelters. Whether they are under or overweight, in poor condition, stressed or fussy with food, the highly nutritious blend of ingredients in Arden Grange foods can help aid improvement and recovery.
Now, more than ever, independent rescues need your help. A small contribution could make a big difference, so consider supporting your local independent rescue centre, either with a donation or by volunteering your time this season.
