Petpals donates £100 to Guide Dogs Charity

3rd May 2017


Franchisee Alex Mees, owner of Petpals Basingstoke, recently made a donation of £100 to her local Guide Dogs team.

Alex, who purchased her Petpals franchise in December 2016, met Lee Thresher, community fundraising development officer for Hampshire and the Channel Islands in the beautiful Basing Wood, one of the many locations she walks her customer’s dogs, on a daily, weekly or ad hoc basis.

When thanking her, Lee explained that it costs £5 per day to look after a Guide Dog meaning her donation will keep a dog for 20 days.

We hope you enjoy watching the official handover video. If you have always wanted to work with animals and would like to run your own business, visit our Franchise Opportunities page and see if we have a territory available for sale near you.
