Rosewood Pet Products has made a donation of pet supplies to support a local team delivering aid to animals affected by events in Ukraine.
Latest news from Rosewood Pet Products.
David Pryce, who set up the project, made the 1,400-mile journey to the Polish / Ukraine border with friend Vince Price to deliver thousands of pounds worth of pet donations.
Before the friends set off on their trip, David visited Rosewood’s headquarters in Telford to load their van with essential pet items, including pet bedding, crates, leads and harnesses and feeding bowls. David invited local charity Team Poundie to be part of the project.
This was David and Vince’s second time delivering aid to Ukraine, in April the pair made the same journey taking a van of mobility equipment, including spinal injury wheelchairs. After meeting a Ukrainian family in a hotel with a dog who’d lost its leg, the pair decided to make a second trip to help animals in need.
David Pryce said: We were very grateful for the generous donations from Rosewood and to everyone who has donated, big or small, which helped immensely. By the time we left we had a van full of pet essentials. We drove to Warsaw to deliver the items, which were then transported to an animal rescue centre in Zhytomyr, West Ukraine. We really hope this helps to ease some of the pressure during this awful time.”
Bev Panter, Marketing Director at Rosewood Pet Products, commented: “We were approached by David Pryce who had teamed up with Team Poundie. He told us about the amazing work he’s been doing taking supplies to Ukraine, so we were happy to be able to contribute. Our Rosewood Charity committee sorted through stock in our warehouse for suitable products which we hope will help the pets in need. We followed Dave and Vince’s incredible journey and are pleased they had a safe trip.”
