Burns Pet Nutrition to feed ‘thousands’ of rescue animals in 2019

Pet food company Burns Pet Nutrition is aiming to improve the health and wellbeing of British and Irish rescue animals by providing pet food and donations to multiple animal charities.

The family-run firm, which already regularly donates its pet food to over 40 rescue centres across the UK, has announced that it will this year offer vital support to three chosen charities as part of its ongoing Charity of the Year Programme.

Blue Cross, Yorkshire Cat Rescue and GalwaySPCA have all been selected by Burns to receive a year’s worth of financial assistance and food amounting to more than £100,000 in value.

The three charities were chosen following an application and interview process which saw over 25 animal welfare organisations apply in total. The collaboration marks the fourth consecutive year that Burns has run its Charity of the Year Programme as part of an ongoing initiative to give back to charity.

Burns owner, John Burns, said: “I have decided that Burns should be a force for good. I want the company to not only be known for our natural pet food, but also for establishing and maintaining a legacy of good causes in the community.”

In addition to financial support, animal rescue charity Blue Cross, which has been running since 1897, will receive food at five of its rescue centres in Bromsgrove, Lewknor, Southampton, Burford and Tiverton.

Joanna Bronziet, corporate partnerships manager at Blue Cross, added: “There is a very natural fit between the ethos and objectives of Blue Cross and Burns which gives us lots of opportunities to work together in a very meaningful and impactful way. Burns will be providing its high-quality dog food to dedicated Blue Cross rehoming centres throughout the year and will also be raising funds towards our work across all of our services with pets.”
