Ashley RVN wins £500 grant for volunteer work

We'd like to offer a massive congratulations to veterinary nurse, Ashley, who has won the "Volunteering for Animal Welfare Grant 2014".

Vet Nurse Online award an annual grant of £500 to veterinary nurses who have contributed a considerable amount of time to volunteering for animal welfare, and this year’s winner was Highcroft’s own, Ashley Crews!

‘Ashley has hand reared over one hundred puppies and kittens’

Vet Nurse Online said, "Ashley’s dedication to her volunteer work was so clear from her application form that we thought she really deserves the award.  The money will be spent on an incubator to give the puppies and kittens she cares for the best possible chance.  Ashley has hand reared over a hundred puppies and kittens through Highcroft and for the RSPCA, and does it all at the same time as her vet nurse day job, using her nursing skills at home as well as at work."

Ashley is now on her 125th hand-rear with two litters of orphaned kittens to keep her busy! One litter is four weeks old and the other litter is only 12 days old, so it will be some time before they are ready to find their new homes.

Well done Ashley we are all extremely proud of you!
