Mars Petcare offers brighter futures to UK cats and dogs

Mars Petcare has named the latest recipients of its Feeding Brighter Futures Grants Programme. The programme assists rehoming centres by providing much needed grants.

Fourteen UK animal rescue homes across the country – all members of the Association of Dog and Cats Homes (ADCH) – will share £120,000. The grants will improve living environments and training facilities for the homeless pets.

Feeding Brighter Futures was started in 2012 by the UK’s most well-known dog and cat care brands, Pedigree and Whiskas. It assists over 100 rehoming centres in the UK through its annual grants programme, food donations and Pedigree and Whiskas staff volunteering – donating more than £2 million in the last five years.

Andrew Winfrow from Mars Petcare UK said: “At Mars Petcare, we know that good nutrition is critical for pets looking for their forever home. Our aim is to help these pets, by supporting the ADCH and the amazing work their members do to find homeless pets a loving family.”
