£100,000 food donation from Spectrum Brands

 

Spectrum Brands, owners of the IAMS and Eukanuba brands in the UK and Europe, has made £100,000 of charitable donations to three animal rescue charities.

Local shelters across the UK for the Retired Greyhound Trust, RSPCA and Pebbles Legacy will benefit from IAMS and Eukanuba cat and dog food.

Annaliese Reekie, managing director of IAMS and Eukanuba UK and Ireland comments: “We are delighted to be able to support these three incredible charities by feeding hundreds of rescue animals across the country.

“These charities work relentlessly to rehome and protect animals in vulnerable situations and we wanted not only to make a large food donation but also to raise awareness of the work they do and show our support.”

Kellie Ceccarelli, veterinary training manager for IAMS and Eukanuba personally visited local shelters for the Retired Greyhound Trust and RSPCA.

Speaking of her experience, Kellie said: “It was really touching to be able to visit the local shelters and see first-hand the hard work and commitment that the employees and volunteers put into running the rescue centres.

“With hundreds of cats and dogs in need of good homes and care, it’s so important that rescue charities are given the support they need to continue.”

Lisa Morris-Tomkins, chief executive of The Retired Greyhound Trust commented: “We would like to thank everyone at Spectrum Brands for supporting our local shelters by giving our dogs a high quality, nutritious diet to enable them to achieve their full potential to live a long, happy and healthy life with their new family.

“The food donation from Spectrum Brands means that we can invest funds into other areas to enable us to help even more dogs that are in desperate need for a new, loving home.”
