Santa Paws is coming to town!

PEDIGREE AND Whiskas joined forces with 'Santa Paws' this December to deliver Christmas Dinner to abandoned cats and dogs at the Wood Green Animal Shelter, Godmanchester on December 11.

Wood Green Animal Shelter is one place amongst many where deliveries were being made this year, running the length and breadth of the country, from the Dog and Cat Home in Edinburgh to the Gables Farm Dogs and Cats Home in Plymouth.

The Christmas dinner deliveries - containing a Pedigree meal and treat for each dog and a Whiskas pouch and treat for each cat - will arrive in good time for Christmas Day!

Veterinary Business Manager Ginny Hicks presented the donations to the centre managers. Says Nigel Mason,, Head of Animal Welfare at the Wood Green Animal Shelters, 'This gesture from Pedigree and Whiskas is very welcome, especially over the Christmas period when abandoned cats and dogs are the last on anyone's gift list. Every little helps, particularly at this time of year when we tend to see an influx of animals at Wood Green.'

A spokesperson from Pedigree says, 'owning a dog or cat is a long term commitment, since many dogs have long life spans and therefore demand years of love and attention. With these special gift packs, we are trying to remember those cats and dogs that are usually forgotten at this time of year.'
