Pet fleeces support animal welfare charity

Fleecy pet bedding used to keep animals warm and comfortable is set to help rescue animals too.

UK pet bedding manufacturer, Vetfleece, has teamed up with the RSPCA to keep pets warm and comfortable while in the charity’s rescue centres.

Vetfleece manufactures super soft pet bedding that is widely used by those involved in the care and welfare of animals. It has been designed for the use in kennels, crated and domestic use for dogs and cats.

The bedding is popular with veterinary surgeries, kennels and catteries, as it has been designed to let fluid drain straight through to keep pets warm and dry whilst also retaining body heat.

The products have been designed to offer comfort to pets during all stages of their lives and the RSPCA are delighted that Vetfleece are donating a percentage of their sales to help with their mission to prevent cruelty, promote kindness and alleviate the suffering of animals.

Ellen Camillin, licensing manager at the RSPCA said: “Having somewhere warm and comfortable to sleep it vitally important for pets, whether they are lounging in their favourite spot in the home or sleeping at a clinic or hospital when undergoing treatment. We want our pets to feel comfortable and clean which is why we are happy to partner up with Vetfleece, whose range of blankets are practical and comfortable and pet-approved.”

There are three versions of Vetfleece, all of which can be cut and fit any area

  1. Non-slip which is perfectly suited for polished, tiled or wooden floors and will add a touch of luxury in transport crates.
  2. The original Greenback, which is a medical grade fleece with a robust backing to help protect against chewing and scratching.
  3. Heavy Duty Greenback which is commonly used for older or post-surgery animals. It has an extra thick pile height to help distribute weight and aids the prevention of pressure sores.

Richard Ward, Managing Director of Vetfleece, said: “Everyone at Vetfleece is excited to be working with the RSPCA. Both organisations have the shared values of putting the care and welfare of animals first and the team at Vetfleece continue to develop new products whilst keeping these values in focus. We see this relationship as mutually beneficial, not only for the pets who receive “the best a pet can get” bedding, but also for the extra-funds we contribute to help the RSPCA prevent cruelty, promote kindness and alleviate the suffering of all animals.”
