A charity campaign by one of Hull’s leading Veterinary Practices has raised over £350 for one of Hull’s longest established dog rescue centres.
Staff at Haven Veterinary Group in Holderness Road and Ketwell Lane in Hedon organised an imaginative series of fund raising events for Carr House Rescue Centre.
Evie Beattie, senior practice administrator at Haven Veterinary Group, led the campaign and was overwhelmed by the level of support that they received.
“We’re proud to support Norma Anderson and her team at Carr House who work tirelessly to provide a safe haven, medical care and love for rescue dogs of all ages.
“It’s particularly appropriate at this time of year as they experienced an unprecedented number of abandoned Staffordshire Bull Terriers, including one left tied to the centre’s gate overnight, in the week before Christmas.”
East Hull based Carr House Rescue Centre has been caring for rescue dogs for over 20 years and currently has 26 dogs to rehome.
Norma Anderson said:
“We are very grateful to Evie and the team for this much needed donation.
It costs over £100,000 a year to keep the centre going, so acts of generosity like this are most welcome.”
Haven Veterinary Group’s two practices specialise in the treatment and care of small and large animals and its Holderness Road practice is also one of only a few nurse training centres in East Yorkshire.
