Housebuilder’s cash to help plucky dog
21 December 2020
Persimmon Homes Lancashire has pledged to help a brave dog to walk again by funding a prosthetic leg.
The regional business is making a donation of £900 to Carlisle charity Miracle’s Mission, to fund the life-changing treatment for dog Jeanie, who had both front legs amputated after she was hit by a car.
Victoria Bryceson, from the charity, said: “Jeanie is such a happy friendly dog, and she really deserves a chance for a full and happy life. She uses her back legs to hop around, but a prosthetic front leg would really change her life.”
Miracle’s Mission will receive the cash through the Persimmon Homes Community Champions scheme, which supports local good causes.
The registered charity rehabilitates and rehomes dogs in need, often with disabilities, and runs an education programme to encourage people to have their pets neutered, to reduce the number of strays in the community.
Diane Finch, sales director for Persimmon Homes Lancashire, added: “Small charities like Miracle’s Mission have really struggled this year, with most fundraising events and activities stopped due to the pandemic.
“Miracle’s Mission is passionate about caring for animals in need, so we are proud to support them in helping little Jeanie to have a happier life with a new adopted owner.”
Persimmon Homes Lancashire makes two donations of up to £1,000 every month. The online application form can be found at www.persimmonhomes.com/charity
