Ancol announces five-year partnership with Birmingham Dogs Home
Ancol Pet Products has agreed a five-year partnership with Birmingham Dogs Home.

The partnership brings together two Midlands organisations that are passionate about dogs and their welfare.

Over the next five years, Ancol and Birmingham Dogs Home will work together on a series of campaigns, competitions and events to help raise awareness and funding for the home.

To mark the partnership, Ancol is donating £25,000 to Birmingham Dogs Home to go towards the costs of looking after stray and abandoned dogs at their new £6 million centre near Solihull, which opened last month.

Ancol Sales Director Sarah Lane commented: “We’ve always been supportive of Birmingham Dogs Home and are delighted to have cemented this partnership. We’re so impressed with their new centre and the facilities it offers, we would urge everyone to pay a visit.”

Chief Executive of Birmingham Dogs Home, Simon Price added: “On behalf of Birmingham Dogs Home, we are very grateful to Ancol for donating £25,000 which will no doubt help the thousands of dogs we look after every year. We really look forward to working with them over the next five years on some exciting campaigns and events.”

In recent years, Ancol has worked with Birmingham Dogs Home on a number of projects, including Ancol’s Dog Model competition and Birmingham Dog’s Home’s Walk in the Park event earlier this year, which raised over £2,000 for the charity.

For more information on stocking Ancol’s huge range of products for dogs, cats and small animals, visit or talk to your local Ancol sales representative.
