We have become the official sponsor of Helping Yorkshire Poundies (HYPS), a rescue centre near Sheffield who save dogs from death row. We will be providing HYPS all the dog food, poop bags and chew toys their tail-wagging tenants need.
At any given time, there are an estimated 100,000 dogs left without homes in the UK. These numbers are above capacity for UK rescue centres, sadly many are euthanised or ‘put to sleep’ for nothing more than a lack of a loving home. The HYPS volunteers work day and night to save the dogs on death row, and in 2017 they saved 216 dogs from an early end.
HYPS rescues are given a spacious room in their quiet kennels and are brought back to full health with Beco Food nutritious 100% fresh meat recipes. The team of volunteers includes Julia, a behaviourist with a keen interest in nutrition, who helps to make the hounds new-home ready.
Joanne, one of HYPS volunteers, reached out to us asking if we would be able to donate a batch of our ethical and sustainable dog food. The HYPS team are already seeing improvements in their residents coats, skin and behaviour from their natural diet “Beco Food provides the best possible nutrition for our residents, to help them get back into tip-top condition whilst they wait for their new homes, and we strongly encourage their new owners to continue with this great diet."
When we at Beco Pets learnt more about HYPS and the amazing work they do, we jumped into action and offered an on-going food supply for all the rescues. Toby Freeman, who headed up the sponsorship for Beco, tells us “I spoke to Joanne and she explained what HYPS do and why they do it. Immediately, we knew we had to help this fantastic cause.’.
Joanne tells us “HYPS are absolutely delighted to be sponsored by Beco Pets. The majority of our dogs have had a poor start to life, and the first step to getting them healthy and happy is good nutrition, so we are so happy to be given the opportunity to feed our dog's such great food! High-quality food is so important to the health and well-being of dogs, and we see first-hand the difference it can make.”
