SHELDON VETS RAISE FUNDS FOR CAT CHARITYPosted on 3rd May 2017
Pet owners across Sheldon in Birmingham have been praised for raising hundreds of pounds for Cats Protection.
More than £480 was raised by the local community at an open day at the YourVets vet clinic on Sheldon Heath Road.
Four hundred people attended the charity event, which included raffles, a ‘name the bear’ competition, clinic tours and a face painter, as well as free advice from YourVets staff and representatives from Cats Protection.
The new veterinary practice opened late last year, in the former Radley Arms pub which has been transformed into high tech operating theatres and vet consulting rooms.
Emily Long, practice manager at YourVets Sheldon, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from local pet owners since opening our vet clinic in December. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who was able to attend the event and raise much needed money for this hugely important organisation.”
Cats Protection supports more than 200,000 cats every year through its rehoming, reuniting and neutering programmes.
YourVets is open six days a week and provides the highest levels of training for all its staff, ensuring that animals receive the best care.
