Choice Housing and the animal welfare charity USPCA have forged a new partnership, working together to roll out a series of pet education talks across local communities.  


The collaboration will bring local communities together to talk about the importance of responsible pet ownership and signpost to programmes of support available to help with the rising costs of pet care.  



Nora Smith, CEO of USPCA commented:


“We are delighted to work with Choice. Partnerships make a real difference. We are a nation of animal lovers, so thechance to bring communities together to talk about their pets is fantastic.  


"As a charity, we know first-hand that the cost-of-living crisis has impacted all aspects of our lives. Pet poverty unfortunately is real and is impacting many homes. We offer a fantastic programme of support offering pet food parcels, which could be a lifeline for many of Choice’s tenants.”  

 


Jonathan Blakely, Community Development Manager with Choice stated:


“Pets play such an important role in our lives.  Animals help break down barriers to create human-to-human friendships and social support, both of which are good for long-term mental and physical health. Our partnership will create openings for communities to connect over their love of animals and provide much needed support during these financially difficult times.”


Dates of community events will follow shortly.
