Part of this is supporting outstanding rescue centres with complimentary food. It breaks our heart to know that there are unwanted pets out there, so by supplying 18 rescue centres across the UK and 58 ongoing sponsorship agreements with nutritious meals we hope to go some way towards making a difference to the lives of cats and dogs seeking a second chance at happiness.
We believe pets are the best thing since sliced bread. That’s why we spent the past 25 years making healthy and nutritious recipes for them. Now, we want to go even further and use the success of the business to support worthwhile animal causes across the UK. We are fortunate as a company to be able to give back. That’s why 25% of company profits are used to help a person or pet in need.
Founder John Burns says,
“As a business owner, it’s incredibly important to me to give back wherever possible. In addition to our charitable activity, we are proud to sponsor a large number of animal welfare organisations and causes nationwide.”
Be it an assistance dog organisation or rescue centre, we sponsor causes that we believe in and support those who can truly benefit.
In addition to our own charity, The Burns Pet Nutrition Foundation, we also have a dedicated Sponsorship department committed to helping people and pets.
Our sponsorship team receive all kinds of enquiries, from one-off donations to long-term sponsorship opportunities. We look at each request on a case by case basis and judge every request on its merits.
Our team works closely with sponsored parties to learn about what they do and to find out what their goals are, whilst building great relationships along the way.
This close relationship means that sponsored parties can be supported in the way best suited to their needs, whether that be by providing complimentary food or in some cases financial support. We also proactively promote sponsors on social media, helping to share their stories with our community.
In the case of the rescue centres we sponsor, we offer rehoming packs to all new pet parents. The packs include a 2kg bag of Burns pet food, measuring cup to help families feed their new pup the correct amount of food and a voucher to spend at their nearest Burns stockist, setting the family and their new pet up for a happy, healthy future.
Giving animals the chance to meet their potential and to live the happiest life possible gives us an enormous sense of satisfaction. For more information about sponsorship opportunities please get in touch.
