To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Animal Friends Pet Insurance, last year they donated a massive £100,000 to the charity StreetVets.

In December 2018, the public voted for StreetVets, who deliver free veterinary care to the homeless and their dogs from a short list of three animal charities. The award-winning practice currently provides assistance in 15 areas of the UK.

This year we are excited that we are through to the public round of voting in the Animal Friends £100K giveaway. We are up against Whale and Dolphin Conservation and Four Paws – both worthy charities but we love BATS! Thank you to everyone who helped to get us selected as one of the three finalists who could potentially win a £100K donation from Animal Friends Pet Insurance.

We need your support to secure this generous donation which could make a huge difference to bat conservation. Please vote now and share with your family, friends and colleagues https://www.animalfriends.co.uk/100kcharitygiveaway/ CLOSING DATE: 24TH NOVEMBER 2019

Dr. Joe Nunez-Mino, Director of Communications and Fundraising, at Bat Conservation Trust said: “Bats are some of the most undervalued, misunderstood and threatened animals on Earth. Bat Conservation Trust has been working to change that and our work is beginning to have a positive impact on some of the 17 bat species in the UK.

“We aim to discover more about bats and how they use the landscape, support local bat groups and the bat care network and educate people about bats. Our vision is to have a world rich in wildlife where bats and people thrive together."

“A donation of £100,000 would make a huge difference to our work, please help us with a simple vote that takes less than one minute.”

Animal Friends Managing Director, Wes Pearson said: “We are delighted to be running the 100k giveaway again this year and encourage everyone to vote online for their chosen charity out of the three finalists.

“This money will make a real difference and be used by the winning charity to help raise awareness, educate people on the needs of animals, enrich environments and have a positive impact on the future of many amazing creatures.”

Votes are open now and will close just before midnight on 24 November 2019, the lucky charity with the most votes will receive the entire £100,000. The winners will be announced on Friday 29 November.
