Tails.com Donates To Dog Furiendly’s COVID-19 Relief Campaign Supporting Charities in Need

Pet-food subscription service tails.com has joined Dog Furiendly’s COVID-19 relief campaign ‘Bark Aid’ providing a £1600 donation and prizes. 

The Bark Aid campaign features a virtual dog show, raising funds for charities and animal rescues that desperately need support to cope with Coronavirus. 

Dog owners will upload photos of their beloved pooch in a series of fun categories such as Fabulous Fella, Gorgeous Girl and Golden Oldie.

All dog show entries will raise funds for over 20 charities and animal rescues, including Streetvet who offer veterinary support for homeless pet owners, FareShare who redistribute food to frontline charities and Age UK the leading charity for the elderly.

After receiving over 1500 BarkAid entries, the donation from tails.com brings the total raised to date £4,000.

Tails.com are also working alongside The Big Issue to make 600kg of food and treats available to self-isolating vendors.

Founder of Dog Furiendly, Adele Pember said: “We are thrilled to receive such an incredible donation and sponsorship from Tails.com!”

Sean McCormack, Head Vet at tails.com said, “Dogs have an incredible ability to lift our spirits in tough times and Bark Aid is a great way to enjoy that while also supporting animal welfare charities. We’re very happy to help and I’m sure there will be plenty of entries from our team and their dogs too!”

The donation will go towards helping charities in need, who are supporting our societies most vulnerable communities and animals.

“We hope the dog show will lift community spirits across the UK. The prizes from tails.com are sure to have the participants tails wagging.”

Dog Furiendly’s Bark Aid campaign has welcomed support from celebrities including Laura Anderson and TOWIE’s Pete Wicks, who will be judging the Best in Show category with prizes from tails.com. 

Love Island’s Laura Anderson said, “As a huge dog lover it was a perfect match for me to be involved with Bark Aid. I feel so lucky at this time especially living alone to have my loving pooch Buddy by my side.”

“I’m thrilled to be a judge and supporter. This campaign is lifting community spirits and raising money for those in need. It’s a woofing good idea!”

The campaign has also gathered support from pupfluencers such as Winnie the Cocker Spaniel famed for having ‘Disney eyes’ and Kratu the rescue dog who recently made a show stopping appearance at Crufts by stealing an agility bar. 

Entries cost £1.50 per category and are open from now until the 23rd April. To enter the Bark Aid virtual dog show and for more information visit dogfuriendly.com/barkaid
