|Caring for Cats honoured with national award|
Caring for Cats has won the award for Best Cat Rescue Centre at the national Wetnose Animal Rescue Awards 2012, billed as the green carpet animal event of the year.
Yorkshire-based event sponsors Burgess Pet Care invited all independent UK rescue centres to nominate themselves for a recognition award under seven different categories. Caring for Cats won the Best Cat Rescue category against numerous other small independents across the country.
Charity Treasurer Steve Marshall commented: “I think we stood out to the judges because of our exceptionally high animal welfare standards which we never compromise on. Cat welfare is the charity’s highest priority and at the heart of every decision we make.”
