Pawprints Dog Rescue (formerly Rugby Pawprints), has been nominated for two awards the Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards 2015.
The National awards scheme is run by industry body, the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) in partnership with specialist insurance providers, Petplan. These inspirational awards, now in their third year, give thanks to teams and individuals who are truly committed to improving the lives of animals who need rescuing and rehoming. Being recognised in these awards is a great achievement.
Pawprints Dog Rescue has been nominated for Animal Charity Team of the Year, and founder Anita Twigger comments:
“We are completely overwhelmed by the nomination for Animal Charity Team of the Year. Since starting Pawprints, our aim has been solely to rescue and find safe, loving homes for the hundreds of dogs we help who are found straying or abandoned in the local area.
“Team PDR is bigger than just the volunteers who physically run the rescue; our Facebook group has over 3,000 members now and it is this community spirit which reinforces our mission and keeps us moving forward. Irrespective of our success in the awards, every member of the team is grateful for the support the community gives us.”
In addition to the Team of the Year nomination, Anita has been personally nominated for Animal Charity Employee of the Year. Speaking about her individual nomination, Anita continues:
“I didn’t get involved in animal rescue for plaudits, but it means an incredible amount to me that people have taken the time to nominate me specifically. Whether I win the award or not, I am extremely grateful to everyone who supports Pawprints!”
Nominations for the Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards 2015 close on 13th February 2015. After this date, the independent judging panel will undertake the difficult task of selecting the finalists in each category.
Winners will be announced on 22nd April 2015 at the Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards ceremony held during the ADCH Conference at the Bournemouth International Centre.
