Donating food

Helping Rescues

In addition to donating our natural pet food to 31 UK rescue centres, we’re proud to announce our Charity of the Year partnership for 2020

Each year, we select outstanding animal welfare organisations from across the UK to receive an extra helping hand in terms of food, financial assistance and promotion. This year we are supporting Bedlington Terrier Rescue and West Cork Animal Welfare.

What our previous Charities of the Year said about their Burns Charity of the Year Award 

National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT)

“NAWT has really enjoyed the opportunity to be one of Burns’ Charities of the Year. Aside from the very obvious financial benefit of Burns feeding our dogs and cats for a year, our animals have done well on their food and the Burns Pet Nutrition Advice Line has provided excellent advice throughout our partnership.

Being a charity partner with Burns has meant so much more. We’ve enjoyed working on all sorts of activities together such as webinars, Facebook events and attendance at various open days. Thank you to Burns for choosing us.”  Clare Williams, Chief Executive of National Animal Welfare Trust.

Appaws For Autism

“During the year we enjoyed several events along with Burns, at Burnsfest in Ayr, Fresh Air Festival in Dunfermline, Dogs’ Day Out at Glamis Castle, and also a much loved trip down to Kidwelly to see how Burns keep the company running and finely tuned.

 Being one of Burns’ Charities of the Year has been beyond expression. We thought ourselves extremely lucky to have been chosen and we are very grateful to Burns Pet Nutrition, Burns in the Community, John Burns and Carol Lincoln for their support throughout the year as well as their friendship.” Carol Chisholm, Founder of Appaws for Autism.
