Best Cat Rescue 2013 – Animal Friends Insurance / Burgess Pet Care & Wetnose Rescue Awards 2013

We are absolutely delighted and incredibly proud to have been awarded the ‘Best Cat Rescue Award 2013’ by Burgess Pet Care, Animal Friends Insurance and The Wetnose Animal Aid team. A few representatives from the Holly Hedge team were invited down to the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, London to attend the star studded awards ceremony. Rick Wakeman and Vicki Michelle awarded Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary a cheque for £1000 and stunning glass trophy. 

This acknowledgement for the Sanctuary has made us all so proud and honoured to be part of such a great team. The award was given to us because of our high standards of care and dedication shown to animal welfare. Our cat garden is also highly commended, as we are able to offer our feline residents a safe outside play area, full of toys, smells and other stimulation to provide them with the exercise and mental challenges they need to keep them happy.

A huge thank you must go to the Wetnose Animal Aid team for their hard work and dedication in helping animals in need and also to Animal Friends Insurance and Burgess Pet Care for sponsoring the award - our prize of £1000 will go towards paying for vet bills for some of our poorly animals. We have seen a great increase in our vet bills as more and more animals are brought to us needing veterinary treatment, so this generous donation has come to us at a vital time. To find out more about the support given to animal charities up and down the Country by Animal Friends Insurance do have a look at their website

Of course, our biggest thank you goes to our incredibly hard working and dedicated team at the Sanctuary, whether staff or volunteers; each and every one of them are devoted to the welfare of the cats and dogs in our care, ensuring every single animal receives the highest standard of care while they are with us, as well as the assurance of a fantastic new forever home.

From all of us at the Sanctuary a massive thank you to everyone involved in the Awards ceremony! For full event details, pictures and winners of this year’s Wetnose Awards please have a look at their website: http://www.wetnoseanimalaid.com/2013.html
