Miller Homes has recently donated a number of pet essentials, including food, toys, and boredom busters, to a charity local to its Novus development, the Society for Abandoned Animals in Stretford.

The charity cares for, and re-homes, unwanted cats and rabbits, preventing healthy animals from being put down or left in abusive homes.

All the animals are given a full health check, vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. The society also ensures the animals’ new homes undergo a full check to give them the best chance of a new, happy life.

The organisation is helped run by a small team of paid employees but the majority of staff are volunteers.

Sophie Walker, Operations Manager at the SAA, commented: “We were thrilled that Miller Homes approached us and asked for our wish list – as you can imagine, feeding lots of hungry mouths gets costly after a while!

“The weave balls and rabbit tunnel will ensure our pets have fun while they see out their time at the charity before they’re adopted into a new loving home. We’re reliant on donations from business and charities, and every little helps.”

Clare Noakes, Sales Director at Miller Homes North West, added, “At Miller Homes, we’re a bunch of animal lovers, so we jump at any opportunity to provide them with better welfare and support the local communities where we build too. Supporting charities and organisations is something we feel passionately about – the fact that the residents are very cute is a bonus!” 

Miller Homes’ Stretford development, Novus, is located on Chester Road in Stretford and contains a number of stylish apartments and houses.

All are located within walking distance to Metrolink stations and Media City. The homebuilder is also in the process of launching a second Greater Manchester development, Varsity Quarter, which is in Northenden and will feature 3 and 4 bedroom homes. You can register your interest for both Novus, and Varsity Quarter, online now.
