Webbox donates dog food to defrauded K9 Crusaders charity

Pet food manufacturer, Webbox, has provided a donation of Webbox Naturals dog food to the K9 Crusaders charity after it was defrauded out of between £88,000 and £200,000 by a “career criminal”.

Sue Smith, the founder of K9 Crusaders, featured on the Do The Right Thing TV programme to talk about what the charity had faced. Both the charity and Smith herself were victims of the fraudster, who posed as a “bogus volunteer” who claimed to be an accountant, but Sue managed to keep the charity going against all odds.

In support of the cause, Webbox donated 47 cases of Webbox Naturals dog food and treats, to the value of over £750 at retail.

Smith said: “We were thrilled and delighted to receive the Webbox donation, it’s very popular with all the dogs here – the dishes are being licked clean.”

Julie Butcher, head of marketing at Webbox, added: “The work that K9 Crusaders do to help dogs in the Cornwall area is invaluable. After hearing Sue’s inspiring story, we wanted to get involved in whatever way we could and provide help for the animals in need.”

Webbox is not the first charity to support K9 Crusaders, after Fish4Dogs provided a donation of two sheds worth of a variety of its food. Webbox previously supported the charity in December 2018, as part of its national ‘12 days of Christmas’ initiative, providing a donation in the form of a hamper filled with festive meals, treats and toys for the dogs to enjoy.
