THE DUCHESS OF SUSSEX TO VISIT MAYHEW
Kensal Green, London
Wednesday 16th January, 2019
The Duchess of Sussex will visit Mayhew on Wednesday 16th January to meet with staff, volunteers and beneficiaries, and hear more about the animal welfare charity’s various initiatives, from community engagement to international projects. This will be Her Royal Highness’s first official visit to Mayhew in her new role as Patron.
During the visit, The Duchess will see first-hand a number of the diverse projects run by the charity, designed to improve the lives of animals and people and to better communities both in London and internationally. These initiatives include animal therapy visits, work with homeless people and their pets, animal welfare schemes such as the Trap, Neuter and Return programme, and international projects including dog rabies vaccinations in Kabul. Her Royal Highness will spend time touring the facilities, meeting members of the community and animals who have benefitted directly from the work of the charity.
Established in 1886, Mayhew looks for innovative ways to reduce the number of animals in need through pro-active community and educational initiatives and preventative veterinary care. This includes working with homelessness charities across London to ensure people and their animal companions can remain together; running a Pet Refuge programme to provide shelter and care for the pets of people in crisis; and educating young people about animal welfare and the importance of responsible pet ownership. Mayhew International works with governments, local communities and charitable groups to help improve animal welfare overseas.
