Closed petition Give financial support to Pet Boarding businesses.
The latest grants made available are for those in lockdown areas or business development. Many Pet Boarding businesses outside lockdown areas have seen customer numbers fall to zero. The Business Development Grants can not be used to pay the monthly bills. Pet Boarding Businesses need financial support now to stop them going out of business. Hundreds of jobs and homes are at risk without adequate financial support.
Pet Boarding businesses have struggle to keep the doors open to assist NHS staff working long hours fighting Covid, they have helped care for pets of people who have been hospitalised. In many cases having one or two pets in at a time costs them more than they earn and with increased heating and lighting bills over the winter months many will be forced to close, removing this vital service.
These are businesses that were successful before Covid and will be again as long as action is taken to protect them.
