Ceva Animal Health, maker of ADAPTIL, has joined forces with Hope Rescue, an inspirational dog rescue charity, to launch a ‘Happy Homes’ initiative.
The initiative will see Ceva donate dog beds, ADAPTIL collars, toys, blankets, LOGIC EaseFlex joint care, LOGIC®Oral Hygiene Gel, Fiprospot flea and Cestem worming treatments to ensure that dogs in the care of Hope Rescue are prepared and ready for their foster family.
It is hoped that the donated products will also enable dogs to easily adapt and settle into their new environments and eventually, in the long-term, their new forever homes.
The ‘Happy Homes’ Initiative follows Hope Rescue winning the charity team of the year award at the Ceva Welfare Awards in 2014 and the charity subsequently being nominated as Ceva’s charity of the year for 2015, which has seen the company raise more than £2,000 for Hope Rescue.
“Hope Rescue is an inspirational charity that helps rescue and support dogs in their transition from being homeless to staying with a foster family and settling into a long-term forever home,” comments Micky Blackburn, key account marketing at Ceva Animal Health.
“We hope that our donation will help the dogs quickly adapt and settle into their new ‘Happy Homes’ whether fostered or forever. ADAPTIL Collars are used by some of the largest UK charities to help support dogs during the first few weeks in a new environment.”
Hope Rescue aims to rescue dogs from emergency situations, such as stray dogs facing destruction after spending their statutory seven days in the pound. The charity commits to take all the stray dogs from three local authorities in South Wales – Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Torfaen County Borough Council and Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council - irrespective of breed, age or medical condition. Its ethos is that ‘no-one gets left behind and every dog gets a chance’. The charity also takes in dogs from the public as and when it has capacity.
Hope Rescue does not have its own rescue centre - it has a great network of fosterers who work hard to give dogs a loving environment. Here dogs can learn and adjust to family life before finding their loving forever home. If Hope cannot secure a rescue space or foster home for its dogs then it uses boarding kennel facilities in South Wales.
