Agria donates over £900,000 to Kennel Club Charitable Trust

Following our most recent donation to the KCCT, the total we have donated to the trust now stands at over £900,000!

This year’s donation at Crufts for £88,412, brings our total donations to the Kennel Club Charitable Trust to over £900,000! 

The KCCT is an incredible organisation that supports specially selected projects with charitable funding.  These projects sit under three main areas:

  1. Science & Research – the funding of innovative projects into inherited diseases in dogs, and other health problems, plus bursaries to the BVNA
  1. Support & Training – the sponsorship of assistance dogs, including those from Dogs for Good, Support Dogs and Medical Detection Dogs
  1. Welfare & Rescue – support for rescue and rehoming charities, emergency welfare and help for stray, abused or neglected dogs - this year, including support to dogs in Ukraine.

Managing Director of Agria Pet Insurance, Vicki Wentworth, says, “Supporting the KCCT is something the Agria team and I are incredibly passionate about. Their funding of so many critical, life-changing projects makes the biggest difference to the health and welfare of dogs, and the people around them.

"From research into canine health issues, to support for assistance organisations, to tireless work in the rescue and welfare sectors – we know that every penny does so much good. We’re very grateful for everything they do to help so much.”

Vicki presented our donation for 2021 to Rose Smart and Jenifer Milard from the KCCT in the form of a dog-friendly cake, which Poppy, an assistance dog from our partners, Service Dogs UK, was especially keen on!

We will be sharing details of the specific projects our donation is funding this year in the coming weeks.
