Welcome to “CASSIE’S CARE4PETS” Page
About three years ago, Jillie Wheeler B.E.M. set up a project called ‘CASSIE’s CARE4PETS’ (CC4P) – a part of the Charity that specifically helps older people struggling to find the money to pay the full cost of their animals’ veterinary treatment.
Question. Who is Cassie and what does she do?
Answer. Cassie was the most wonderfully placid black German Shepherd dog who helped her owner Jillie Wheeler B.E.M. raise THOUSANDS of £s for people and animals in need of help, care or specialist equipment. Jillie was awarded the British Empire Medal for her services to charity and fund raising in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. CC4P was started in 2013 with the support of the then High Sheriff of the Isle of Wight, Nick Hayward.
Question. How can Cassie’s Care 4 Pets help?
Answer. If you are a Senior Citizen whose pet needs veterinary attention which may be beyond your personal financial means, CC4P MAY be able to contribute towards the cost.
Question. How do I apply for help from Cassie’s Care 4 Pets?
Answer. In the first place you need to write to the address (below) with a) your name, address and telephone number, b) details of the veterinary treatment required and c) the contact details of your vet. Please write to:- Cassies Care4Pets 17a Riverway Newport PO30 5UX
