Animal health company Merial has launched its first ever ‘Share the Joy’ campaign to highlight and provide some of Britain’s favourite animal charities with much needed funds.
Christmas time often sees a rise in animal donations and pet health issues – and the manufacturer of Frontline combo and Frontline Spot-on, has created a festive informative video to highlight pet issues around Christmas.
Merial is offering the chance for voters to have their say in the £6,000 donation, which will be distributed to the three most popular charity choices.
To raise awareness of the cause, the pet food manufacturer has produced a video highlighting the problems, which can be viewed here through www.sharethejoy.co.uk.
The video features many slapstick pet moments, with a pug DJ-ing and cats playing twister – and viewers sharing the video and voting for the charities will get the chance to win one of three iPhone 5’s. Votes can be placed once per day from 1 December to 2 January.
Mark Boddy from Share the Joy Campaign comments: “We all love pets and wanted to raise awareness throughout the festive season in a fun and exciting way for the various animal charities that do so much.
“The dogs, cats and us had great fun making the video and I hope everyone enjoys it and remembers to share the joy this Christmas and vote for their favourite charity.”
Participating charities include: Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity; Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, aiming to rescue, reunite, rehabilitate and rehome lost and abandoned dogs and cats; Hounds for Heroes, providing dogs for disabled servicemen from the British Forces; Wood Green Animal Shelter, one of the leading animal welfare organisations in the UK helping rehome animals, supporting pet owners and animal welfare; Dogs for the Disabled, helping disabled people to increase their independence by training specially selected dogs to live and work with them; and FAB (Feline Advisory Bureau), a charity dedicated to promoting the health and welfare of cats through improved feline knowledge.
