From rescue dogs to retired racing Greyhounds being given a second chance in life, dogs of every shape, size, age and breed have been helped by Butcher’s #NourishEveryDog campaign.
The initiative has been making a huge difference to the lives of less fortunate dogs nationwide, and helping charities at a time when many are struggling with a shortage of donations.
Butcher’s have been a vital support for organisations such as the Manchester and Cheshire Dogs’ Home, who care for over 7,000 dogs every year. Many are never reclaimed by their owners and require emotional and physical support before they can be made available for adoption.
Manager Anna Stansfield said: “I have worked here for 13 years and, despite receiving a lot of donations, we’ve always been short of wet food. We were delighted when Butcher’s said that, through their #NourishEveryDog campaign, they could help to bridge the gap. The amount of food we have received has made a difference to our dogs.”
German Shepherd Rescue Elite has also taken delivery of many delicious Butcher’s meals during the campaign. The charity was established to help unwanted, abandoned and neglected German Shepherds, and offer education to the public on owning a large working breed dog. Founder Allison Clarke said: “German Shepherds are very sensitive dogs and when they are in kennels their stomachs are often even more delicate because of the environment they are in.
“When Butcher’s asked if we wanted food, we were delighted. It’s such good quality that even picky eaters enjoy it, which is a huge help when it comes to ensuring the good health of our dogs in need.”
