Dog-friendly holiday company PetsPyjamas has recently given a total of over £132k to animal charities.
PetsPyjamas has been at the “forefront” of dog-friendly travel since 2014 and now features over 18,000 hotels, cottages, country houses and b&bs in the UK and overseas.
It revealed this domination comes after giving £30k to a “variety” of animal charities, many with “limited” fundraising resources, who have found the last two years “especially” difficult.
Previous beneficiaries of PetsPyjamas’ charitable giving have included The Fox Project, dedicated to the protection, rescue and rehabilitation of wild foxes, and the Oldies Club, run solely by volunteers, which specialises in rescuing and rehoming senior dogs.
James Williams, managing director, said: “Dogs are at the heart of our business, and I think it’s important that we give something back to less fortunate animals. At PetsPyjamas we believe dogs are part of the family and encourage them to holiday with their owners.
“However, we realise that not every pet or animal is as fortunate as our four-legged customers, which is why it’s so important that we give back in some way to animals that bring so much joy and value to the world.”
Williams added: “With dog ownership at an all-time high in the UK, our customer pool is at the largest it’s ever been, so this year we hope to be able to make a much bigger difference to those smaller organisations who do the most fantastic work for our animal friends.”
