Love is found in all sorts of places, including your local animal rescue centre! We often see first-hand the love that blooms between pet and owner. Sometimes it happens straight away, and sometimes it takes a few weeks.

It’s the time of year to treat yourself and your loved ones, and we know your newest member of the family definitely won’t be left out! So we’ve compiled four simple and effective tips to help you maintain your beloved pet’s wellbeing throughout the festive season.
