9.BURGESS PET CARE LOYALTY SCHEME: Pet food is one of the biggest costs Auntyanimal Rescue faces. The Burgess Pet Care Loyalty Scheme aims to help as many of the smaller, independent rescues with the cost of food as possible through various initiatives, including the provision of re-homing packs and loyalty cards to give out to everyone who re-homes a pet.
All you, as the new owner, need do is continue buying Burgess food for your pet and collect the barcodes from the packaging. When you have collected 5 barcodes you simply put them in your loyalty card (Contact us by email if you don't have one or didn't receive a replacement card), include your name and address, as well as ours (Auntyanimal Small Animal Fostering and Rescue, Lares, Slough Road, Allens Green, Sawbridgeworth, Herts. CM21 0LR), seal it up, and return it by FREEPOST.
In return Burgess Pet Care will send us (as your chosen rescue centre) a sack of our favourite Burgess pet food absolutely free. Burgess should then send you a new loyalty card so you can continue generating free food for Auntyanimal Rescue. The more owners that collect barcodes, the more free food you can earn for Auntyanimal Rescue. It's as simple as that.
