UK - Walsall based pet accessories company Ancol Pet Products has sponsored a new exercise paddock for rescue dogs at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

Ancol founders, Colin and Ann Lane, and their daughter, Sales Director Sarah Lane visited Battersea last week to see the paddock and meet one of its first residents - a Beagle, who has been named after the company.

The Ancol paddock is one of 12 that provide a safe and secure outdoor area where rescue dogs can walk, play and get to know their prospective new owners. It includes climbing frames, play equipment and plants to awaken and interest dogs’ senses.

Ancol Sales Director, Sarah Lane commented: “We wanted to do something that would make a real difference to the dogs that Battersea rehomes. When we heard about their expansion plans, we were delighted to sponsor one of their new exercise paddocks.

“My family and I were really pleased to see the fantastic new facilities at Battersea and we’re delighted that over the next three years, thousands of dogs will benefit from our paddock. We love that they have named the first dog to use the paddock after us so please get in touch with Battersea if you can offer ‘Ancol’ a home.”

Director of Fundraising at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Amanda Bringans added: “Each year Battersea opens its doors to around 5,000 dogs, providing the very best care for them until new homes can be found. Our new paddocks will ensure our dogs have interesting and enriching areas to explore and enjoy. We’re very grateful to Ancol for sponsoring a paddock and helping so many animals during their stay at the Home.”
