Sooooooo as you know being active isn't really our thing unless it involves jumping up and down at a gig on the front row.... however Emma spends her days trying to get people to sign up to challenges to help raise money for pets in need and its about time she put her money where her mouth is and as for Jen & Laura, well they want to take on a challenge that they wouldn't normally do and raise funds for a good cause at the same time
We have decided to take on TrekFest - trekking 25km across the Peaks this September. TrekFest is tough and will hurt and push us BUT we can and will succeed...especially as we're doing it together xx
All the money we raise from taking on this challenge will got directly towards helping the thousands of pets that are cared for, rehomed and treated by Blue Cross each year - it goes without saying that every penny that we raise really is SO appreciated and really will make a difference so please dig deep xxx
Blue Cross helps care for over 38,000 pets each year and has an ever increase range of services. We focus on caring and finding new homes for unwanted, abandoned or injured pets in our hospitals and rehoming centres. We provide vital veterinary care to pets whose owners are unable to afford or access treatment, and we run a unique pet bereavement service, giving emotional support to owners who have lost a pet. A vital part of our work is campaigning for wider change, lobbying the government and decision makers and educating the public to improve attitudes towards pet welfare on a local and national scale.
In 2015, Blue Cross helped over 9000 pets through our rehoming services and performed over 23,500 operations in our hospitals. Our behavior team carried out over 5000 consultations on our pets, and our bereavement service answered 1000 calls and emails.
Our aim is to double the number of pets we help by 2020 and to do this we need to double our income too so by people doing crazy things like TrekFest we can hopefully make this happen!
