Trover ® Enterprises Ltd and Animal Friends Insurance are delighted to be presenting their first ‘Ladies That Rescue’ award at Crufts.
Celebrating and recognising the positive work achieved by women in rescue, the presentation will take place on Trover® Coat’s UK distributor’s stand - Country Mun - stand no: 142 - Hall 2 , on Friday 9th March at 2.15 pm.
In response to staggering figures that reveal that 101,586 stray dogs were found in the UK last year and that 7, 743 dogs were destroyed for want of a home, Trover ® and Animal Friends Insurance are keen to acknowledge the valuable rescue work achieved by women volunteers – without which these figures would be higher.
Inundated with entries all of which were extremely worthy, it is the aim to make this an annual competition, which will heighten awareness for women in rescue and the on-going recognition that they deserve.
Animal Friends Insurance Founder MD, Elaine Fairfax, and Agility expert Donelda Guy will present the £500 prize to the winner Val Philips of Valgrays Border Collie Rescue. She will be accompanied by Red – one of her rescue dogs who will be proudly wearing his bespoke Trover® Coat in style.
The runner up Jacquie Neilson of Rain Rescue will receive a Bootsuit car liner presented by Many Valentine of Bootsuit.
