Burns Pet Charity of the Year

We’re delighted to announce our Burns Pet Charity of the Year award! 
This year we are supporting three outstanding animal welfare charities with an annual package of free food and financial assistance. Throughout the year we'll also be working on joint fundraising activities to help these incredible organisations get the help and support they need, when they really need it..
We're delighted to announce that the chosen charities of the year for 2019 are Yorkshire Cat Rescue and GSPCA

What our previous Charities of the Year say:

“NAWT has really enjoyed the opportunity to be one of Burns’ Charities of the Year. Aside from the very obvious financial benefit of Burns feeding our dogs and cats for a year, our animals have done well on their food and the Burns Pet Nutrition Advice Line has provided excellent advice throughout our partnership.

“Being a charity partner with Burns has meant so much more. We’ve enjoyed working on all sorts of activities together such as webinars, Facebook events and attendance at various open days. Thank you to Burns for choosing us.” 

Clare Williams, Chief Executive of National Animal Welfare Trust.

“During the year we enjoyed several events along with Burns, at Burnsfest in Ayr, Fresh Air Festival in Dunfermline, Dogs’ Day Out at Glamis Castle, and also a much loved trip down to Kidwelly to see how Burns keep the company running and finely tuned.

 Being one of Burns’ Charities of the Year has been beyond expression. We thought ourselves extremely lucky to have been chosen and we are very grateful to Burns Pet Nutrition, Burns in the Community, John Burns and Carol Lincoln for their support throughout the year as well as their friendship."

Carol Chisholm, Founder of Appaws for Autism.
