Edinburgh rescue dogs and cats to receive paw-some boost from supplement partnership
A big-hearted pet supplement maker is set to provide a lead-ing example by raising much-needed funds for Scotland’s many stray and abandoned animals.
Pawbits has today launched a partnership with Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, which will see £1 from every product sold donated to support the Home’s rescuing, reuniting and rehoming activities.
Edinburgh-based Pawbits, a maker of supplements which focus on joint care and easing pet anxiety, believes it is getting involved at a vital time – at the start of a new year when the home will face running costs up to £2million to continue caring for the city’s unwanted pets.
Alanna Kibiloski, Special Gifts Fundraiser at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, said:
“Funds raised through the sale of Pawbits will be used to provide essential food, shelter and vital veterinary care for the hundreds of animals that come through our door on an annual basis.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Pawbits and send our sincere thanks to all involved for their support.”
Scot entrepreneur Shaf Rasul, CEO of Estock, said: “I’m proud that one of my companies has taken this positive step of providing vital support to the capital’s longest-running cat and dog home, helping to give many unwanted animals a second chance at finding a loving owner and providing them with lifeline care when they need it most.
“Pawbits has become known for helping to give Scotland’s pets a vital health kick. I now hope it will also become known for its sustained support in alleviating the huge and heart-breaking problem of lost and abandoned pets that Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home experiences first-hand on a daily basis.
“Hopefully the £1 that Pawbits donates from every sale will go some way to tackling the issue in a meaningful way while significantly enhancing the chances of reuniting lost pets with owners or rehoming abandoned animals.”
