Charity Review 2023 - how we helped, together

Let’s take a look at what we achieved, who it helped, and why it matters.

21st February 2024

In 2022, we were able to see first-hand the financial struggles faced by pet owners and charities across the country, with animals sometimes paying the price of the Cost-of-Living crisis. This continued in 2023, with many rescue centres and shelters seeking funds for vet bills, food costs, and other day-to-day expenses, to be able to continue with their incredible work. With our support, together, we've been able to help more pets remain with their owners and stay happy and healthy.

During these challenging times, we forged ahead with our mission to make a better life for every animal. We continued to support charities around the world, funding projects from Ghana to the Galapagos, saving creatures of all shapes and sizes while doing what we could to protect their equally vulnerable homes, too.

Let’s take a look at our 2023, another year of giving.

At Animal Friends, we’re more than just pet insurance; we’re a family, working together to better the life of every animal and support those who work so hard to care for them.
