The votes are in!
18 May 2016
As part of Willows commitment to BSAVA congress, delegates were given a token when they visited our stand to enable them to vote for one of our three chosen charities; PetSavers, Love Underdogs and Cats Protection. The proportion of votes received for each charity determined the share of £5,000 that has been donated by Willows. The votes are now in and PetSavers were the first charity to receive their donation.

PetSavers is a division of the BSAVA dedicated to improving the health of pets by relieving the distress and pain caused by diseases for which we currently have no effective treatments.
PetSavers raises money to fund vital research projects which aim to prevent, treat and cure conditions affecting pets, so that our companion animals can enjoy longer, fuller and healthier lives. Only studies involving naturally occurring diseases in small animals are considered and are undertaken to the highest ethical level.
Toby Gemmill, Clinical Director of Willows said “We were delighted to be able to present this donation to Petsavers. As a busy referral centre, we have been able to treat many cases over the years that have directly benefitted from research funded by PetSavers, and we welcome the chance to be able to give something back to such a great charity.”
On receiving the donation PetSavers said “Thank you for thinking of PetSavers. Your donation is very important to our organisation as it helps fund vital clinical research into the prevention and treatment of illnesses which affect companion animals, so pets can enjoy longer, healthier lives.”
Once again, I thank you on behalf of PetSavers, it is so important that we receive donations, because the more funding we can raise, the more pets will be saved.
