Homeless horses and ponies at Blue Cross, one of the UK’s leading animal charities, are now enjoying a free supply of Likit Treats and Toys in their stables and field shelters, thanks to the generosity of Likit Products.
When Likit read that Blue Cross horses were using their products they decided to donate 50 of their specialist treats to the charity along with some additional Likit Holders, to help enhance the lives of the many horses and ponies being rehabilitated at the charity’s horse rehoming centre in Burford, Oxfordshire.
Vicki Alford, Blue Cross horse manager at Burford, said: “We do our best to enrich the lives of the horses and ponies at our centres, many of whom are with us for several months while they undergo a programme of rehabilitation. We have used products like Likits for a number of years – they’re especially useful at keeping those on prolonged box rest happily occupied. We receive no government funding so we are hugely grateful for generous donations like these, which help improve the lives of our horses and ponies while they wait for happy new homes.”
Lindsay Gall, Marketing Manager of Likit continued: “Blue Cross does such an amazing job and we are so pleased to be able to help them bring some extra joy to the lives of the deserving horses and ponies in their expert care.”
Last year (2011), Blue Cross took in 166 unwanted and abandoned horses and ponies at its two horse rehoming centres in Burford, Oxfordshire and Rolleston-on-Dove, Staffordshire. Over 600 Blue Cross horses are on long-term loan in homes across the UK. To find out more or to make a donation, visit www.bluecross.org.uk.
