Skinner’s donate over £10,000 in dog food to rescue centres throughout the UK


Suffolk based manufacturer Skinner’s Pet Foods supported rescue centres throughout the UK with over £10,000 of dog food this Christmas.


Skinner’s drew out a handful of rescue centres at random to donate a pallet of Field & Trial Turkey & Rice, in order to make the mission of giving as many dogs a Christmas dinner as possible come true!


The rescue centres included, Caring 4 Canines in Haughley (pictured above) which houses 101 dogs, Whitehall Dog Kennels (Wakefield), Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue (Dumfries), Babington Rescue (Nottingham), Forest Dog Rescue (Kidderminster), Teckels Animal Sanctuaries (Gloucester) and Meadow Green (Norwich).


Sarah Fortey, Assistant Manager of Teckels Animal Sanctuaries, said: “We always prefer to give our rescue animals a good balanced diet whilst in our care, and it's great that we have a good supply of Field & Trial Turkey & Rice to use for the year ahead. We thank Skinner’s for their support and generous donation."


Skinner’s Pet Foods Sales & Marketing Director, William Delamore, said: “Christmas is a special time to many people, and this should be no different for dogs in rescue centres. We wanted to help make a difference for these dogs by providing them with a Turkey & Rice dinner from our very own Field & Trial range.


“We realise that it’s not just Christmas when rescue centres need donations of food, so that is why, from January 2019, we are giving our customers the chance to vote on our Facebook page monthly for a charity they would like us to donate to.”


Each pallet donated by Skinner’s would retail in excess of £1,500 making the total donated this Christmas over £10,000 and feeding almost 300 dogs.


Skinner’s Field & Trial range is currently stocked in over 2,000 independent pet stores, country stores and most online retailers.
