Something special happened at the Wimblington RSPCA Centre in Cambridgeshire, UK: a Porsche Cayenne drove up with an entire trunk-load of supplies and food for shelter animals. To the delight of local RSPCA workers (equitable with the U.S. ASPCA) Christmas came a few days early for their charges thanks to an unexpected source.
As part of the dealership’s 12 Days of Christmas charity drive, Porsche Centre Cambridge collected donations of pet food, toys, and other items. Employees, staff, and customers all took part in what Porsche Centre GSM Andy Matthews called an “overwhelming show of support.” Several dealership employees, including Matthews, delivered the gifts to the shelter on the morning of December 18, and spent some time with three of the rescue dogs.
For many of the rescue animals, the supplies were a great gift indeed. Like the United States’ ASPCA, the RSPCA is a system of kill shelters, meaning that, sadly, pets kept in their facilities must sometimes be euthanized. Perhaps, by supporting a local animal shelter with a trunk load of supplies, Porsche Centre Cambridge may have bought rescue animals extra time… Maybe enough extra time to find a home and a family.
“This was a really special event for us to support such a fantastic local charity,” stated Matthews, going on to offer a “huge thank you” to everyone who donated.
With the help of employees and customers, Porsche Centre Cambridge has made Christmas merry and bright for their local animal shelter. The staff of the Wimblington RSPCA Centre was grateful, as, doubtlessly, were all of the cats and dogs under their care. Next to a new home, it was the best gift many of these animals could receive.
