Everest's #petsinwindows raises more than £5,000 for Charity

Date: 23/03/2016

Everest Home Improvement’s customers have helped raise more than £5,000 for the RSPCA and Scottish RSPCA thanks to your brilliant #petsinwindows photos.

We challenged people to take a photo of their furry, feathery or scaly friend in a window to highlight the plight of animals who don’t have somewhere safe and warm to call home.

Everest donated £5 for each entry received. The competition saw more than 1,000 entries submitted, with the winners – decided by public vote – receiving vouchers to help make their pet feel even more special.

Scottish SPCA Superintendent Sharon Comrie said: "We would like to thank Everest Home Improvements for their generous donation which will help towards the cost of feeding the rescued animals in our care.

“We estimate this donation will feed around 100 dogs and 100 cats for a week, which is fantastic.

"We don't receive any government or lottery funding, therefore donations enable us to continue our vital work rescuing and rehoming animals in Scotland."

Our winners included Trudy Hamer’s dog, Winnie, who seemed more concerned with sunning herself than keeping guard, Mia the cat who was enjoying staying warm and dry while it rained outside, and Lisa Symonds’ cat Sophie who was mesmerised by the camera. Joanne Anderson’s dog, Khalese, was the first Scottish winner, seen poesing below as if he were a cat

Everest’s Anthony Threlfall, Head of Marketing Response, said: “We’re delighted with the response we received from our customers who clearly care deeply about helping pets less fortunate than their own.

“All of the photos we received were fantastic and I’m just happy it was up to the public to choose the winners – we would never have been able to decide!

“Everest would like to a say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who entered and helped us raise awareness and money for this great cause.”
