Bath Cats & Dogs Home’s Annual Kennel Break Challenge

Vet Amelia Welham became a “dogsbody” for a day in a bid to retrieve cash for her local animal rescue charity.

Dr Welham, who works at the Vets4Pets surgery inside Pets at Home in Bath, dressed as a hound and allowed herself to be locked in a rescue dog pen during Bath Cats and Dogs Home’s annual kennel break challenge.

To gain her freedom, she raised £686 in donations for the charity. She was joined by receptionist Nikki Gay and Chloe Weston-Turner from the store’s Groom Room.

Petplan partnership support controller Forat Sabih and marketing colleague Stephanie Mylchreest also joined the annual kennel lock-in and raised £960.

In the past six years, kennel break challengers have helped the charity raise £67,023 towards it £1.4million annual running costs. So far this year’s challenge has raised £7,391.85 with further donations expected.
