There are less than two weeks to go before nominations close for the Petplan and ADCH Animal Charity Awards. With animal welfare at its heart UK’s leading specialist insurer Petplan works with over 1,000 animal charities throughout the UK and its equine specialist sister brand, Petplan Equine is putting out a final call to the equine community to nominate their favourite charity for the 2015 Petplan and ADCH Animal Charity Awards. Nominations close for the 2015 Animal Charity Awards on 13th February 2015.
Last year equine charity employee Jenna Martyn was rewarded for her tireless work and inspirational leadership at Blue Cross’ rehoming centre in Burford by winning the Charity Employee of the Year Award.
With fly-grazing on the increase, Equine charities are facing even greater pressure than ever as they strive to cope with the escalating numbers of horses that need to be rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed. In the racing industry, charities work tirelessly in retraining and rehoming retired racehorses, to give them a second chance. So whether your preferred charity is one that retrains, rehomes or simply provides sanctuary for horses, The Petplan ADCH Animal Charity Awards give you the perfect opportunity to recognise and reward these efforts so if you know someone who is deserving of such recognition like Jenna Martin nominate them for one of the following awards before 13th February by visiting www.petplan.co.uk/charityawards.
There are three awards:
Animal Charity Team of the Year
Animal charities work tirelessly to provide a better life for animals all over the UK. Petplan and ADCH are looking for a charity team that has worked particularly well together to bring a positive and noticeable change to the health and wellbeing of animals.
Animal Charity Volunteer of the Year
Withoutvolunteers who give up their free time on a regular basis all charities would struggle to survive as staff, resources and finances would be stretched to the limit. Petplan and ADCH are looking for a dedicated volunteer who shows a real commitment to an animal charity.
AnimalCharity Employee of the Year
Staff are the backbone of any animal charity and Petplan and ADCH are looking for a hard working employee who is passionate about their job, day in, day out and makes a difference to the rest of the staff and the work of the charity.
Three finalists for each category will be selected and invited to attend the Petplan and ADCH Animal Charity Awards evening in April 2015 where the winners will be announced.
