Myerson Solicitors in Altrincham has smashed their target to raise £1,100 for an Oxygen Concentrator for the Manchester and Cheshire Dogs’ Home.
The firm took part in several events throughout December including a raffle, a virtual dog show and a Santa dash. With 100% of departments taking part, Myerson has managed to raise more than their intended £1,100, with the final total exceeding £1,700.
Anna Stansfield, the Home Manager at Cheshire Dogs Home said: “The Oxygen Concentrator is an essential piece of equipment for the veterinary surgery. We are so grateful to the Myerson team and their friends and families, for their generous contributions. The new equipment will allow us to perform more routine veterinary procedures and avoid the need of paying for individual cylinders. The veterinary team carry out many in house procedures such as neutering and emergency operations to improve the lives of the dogs in our care, the Oxygen Concentrator will increase our capacity to carry out these operations and enable us to help more dogs.”
Manchester and Cheshire Dogs’ Home (MCDH) take in and care for over 7,000 dogs every year. Many of these dogs are never claimed by their owners, so the home looks after the dogs and ensures they are kept fit and healthy ready for adoption. At any one time, they have over 250 dogs that are needing to be rehomed.
Andrew Chapman, Partner and Head of the CSR Committee notes: “When the Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Home reached out to request the Oxygen Concentrator for their dogs and puppies, the team at Myerson needed no convincing to rally round and help in any way we could. As a team, we regularly do lots of events and CSR activities together, as many of us are dog owners, this particular cause tugged at our heartstrings. We will continue to support the MCDH along with our other charity The Booth Centre throughout 2021.”
