Burgess Pet Care is delighted to announce sponsorship of a world record breaking event – the Guiness World Record for the Largest Dog Walk (single breed), which is being organised by the Greyhound Sanctuary.
The event aims to not only break the world record but also to raise money and awareness for the pressing need to rehome and rescue greyhounds.
Marketing Manager at Burgess Pet Care Richard Rockett comments, “we are delighted to be sponsoring this fantastic event. At Burgess Pet Care we are committed to the health and welfare of Greyhounds and Lurchers.” Burgess have been supporting Greyhound and Lurcher rescue centres for a number of years, with 20p from every sack of food donated to the Greyhound and Lurcher Fund. Last year alone they donated over £5000.
Richard continues, “Sadly far too many of these wonderful animals have had a far from happy start in life. Many are left unwanted and abandoned. The lucky ones eventually reach the safe haven of a rescue centre before finding their loving forever homes. These rescue centres play an invaluable role by providing the care needed to bring these dogs back to full health, restoring broken spirits and rebuilding broken trust”.
“This is a fantastic event. Not only should this be a lot of fun it will hopefully raise awareness of a very worthwhile cause. At Burgess we love Greyhounds and Lurchers, and believe they make the perfect companions and family pets. That is why we created the SupaDog Greyhound and Lurcher complete food.”
Designed specifically for the breeds, Supadog Greyhound & Lurcher contains glucosamine for stiff and tired joints; Omega 3 for a shiny coat, healthy skin and to help with temperature regulation; pre-biotics to aid digestive health; and 17% protein as greyhounds and lurchers require less protein than other dogs due to their laid back and sedate nature. It is, of course, free from artificial colours, flavourings and has no added preservatives.
Burgess SupaDog Greyhound and Lurcher is available at Pets at Home and all good pet stores. It is also available online at burgesspetcare.co.uk or on Amazon.co.uk.
Burgess Pet Care representatives are look forward to meeting everyone on the day at our trade stand and have donated some fantastic prizes to be won in the raffle.
