Samantha Fox Presents Award to Caring for Cats
Pop music icon Samantha Fox, who rose to the top of the charts in the 80s with her single “Touch Me,” was deeply touched by the dedication of animal welfare’s unsung heroes as their work received much-deserved recognition at the third annual Burgess Wetnose Animal Rescue Awards, which was held on March 9, 2012 at the Jumeriah Carlton Tower Hotel in London.
An animal advocate who has promoted volunteerism at Cats Protection and helped to bring to light the plight of cats’ wild cousins by signing a petition to end the tiger trade in China, Ms. Fox (a Mom to multiple cats) was proud to present the award for Best Cat Rescue Centre to Caring for Cats.
Caring for Cats
Helping our feline friends in the Hull, York, Driffield and wider Yorkshire and Humber region, approximately 80 cats and kittens receive comfort and care from Caring for Cats on any given day. The non-profit rescues and rehomes approximately 400 cats annually, and provides both feral cats and those who have lost their home due to a variety of circumstances with a safe haven at their homing center in Market Weighton as they wait for the day when they are adopted.
