I have been asked to give this a plug....

 The Pedigree Adoption Drive, which is back for the fourth year running, has extended this year’s grant application deadline for an additional week and is calling on all members of the Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) to apply for grants before 7th November.

Launching on the 17th October, the annual campaign seeks to raise funds and awareness for the thousands of abandoned and strayed dogs across the UK.   So far the campaign has raised over £1million  for rescue homes - which has helped to fund the vital refurbishment of dilapidated kennel blocks, supply desperately needed veterinary facilities and provide essential surgical equipment.

Steve Leonard - TV presenter, vet and face of this year’s Pedigree Adoption Drive said:

“With the number of dogs abandoned at an 11 year high*, we need to work together to raise awareness of this issue, offer support to the rescue homes caring for the abandoned dogs and educate the nation as a whole about the importance of responsible dog ownership.”

Grant applications can be made in writing or by downloading a form from
<>   and posting it to The Petplan Charitable Trust.

Those who are not yet members of the ADCH can apply now for consideration, giving them enough time to get their applications in by Monday 7th November 2011.
