West Cork feels the Burns

Tails are wagging with happiness in West Cork as neglected animals are about to get some tasty food thanks to a Welsh company.

Pet food company Burns Pet Nutrition has announced that it will this year offer support to West Cork Animal Welfare, as part of its ongoing Charity of the Year programme.

The Cork-based charity, which was set up to help neglected and abused animals, has been selected by Burns as one of its two charities of the year, joining Bedlington Terrier Rescue Foundation. It will receive a year's worth of financial assistance and food amounting to more than €50,000 in value.

The charities were chosen following an application and interview process. The collaboration marks the fifth consecutive year that Burns has run its Charity of the Year programme as part of an ongoing initiative to give back to charity.

Jennifer Headlam from West Cork Animal Welfare said: “We are absolutely delighted and thankful, for all the dogs, cats and kittens in our care, to have been chosen as the Burns Charity of the Year.

“We all know what incredible quality Burns food is and the benefits it will give the animals in our care, from tiny pups and kittens to older frail dogs. It is a massive boost to the West Cork Animal Welfare Group team and an honour to be the winners.”

Founded in May 1999, West Cork Animal Welfare was established to help unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused animals in West Cork and in 2020 Burns Pet Nutrition will be helping them to continue their work by providing a monetary donation to help towards purchasing much needed items for the rescue centre.

Business owner and veterinary surgeon, John Burns commented: “We are in a very fortunate position that, as a company, we are able to support causes in the community as well as deserving charities. I have decided that Burns should be a force for good.”
