2020 has been so challenging for so many of us, and animal rescues and rehoming organisations are definitely no exception. With usual fundraising events unable to go ahead, extreme difficulties with rehoming pets due to social distancing, and the ever-increasing threat that many of the so-called 'lockdown' puppies and kittens may end up in need of their help - it's a perfect storm. In addition to our ongoing support to animal rescues across the UK, we're delighted to have donated an additional £1,250 between the five rescues nominated by our Pet Pawtraits winners.
And here are those winning photos!
This is Billy Blue, winner of 'Hyper-focused' - judged by Agilitynet - congratulations to you and Shropshire Street Cats, who said: "What a fantastic pic of Billy Blue who won the "hyper focused" category in your photo competition and thank you to Pam his owner who nominated Shropshire Street Cats to be awarded the £250 donation from Agria Insurance. It has been a really tough year for us as we have been unable to do any face to face fundraising and this donation will help us to continue to care for the rescue cats and kittens in our care. Just wonderful!"
This is Reg - winner of Best Action Shot - judged by Your Cat - congratulations to Reg and Spaniel Assist Rescue and Rehoming, who said: "This is absolutely wonderful, I am the over the moon A huge thanks to Roz and of course the amazing Reg So very proud of him xx"
This lovely pair are Mickey and Belle, winners of 'Best Snuggler' - judged by Your Dog - congratulations to Mickey and Belle and Mrs Murrays Cat and Dog Home - who said: "Winning the £250 means so much to us, especially after the year we have all had. We can't thank Miranda enough for nominating us - very much appreciated. How cute were her cats!"
Thank you to everyone who entered! We loved seeing all your amazing pets and can't wait to do it all again next year!
