The Rumba Foundation was set up in 2012 to help pioneer clinical care for companion animals. Our passion is to support projects which make a direct impact on the health of cats and dogs and other small animals.
We know our pets bring us great joy on a daily basis, however, did you know that our love affair with our pets is a mutually beneficial relationship? There is considerable evidence that being a pet owner can help make us healthier and happier. Numerous studies show that owning a pet can lower our blood pressure, relieve feelings of depression, loneliness, stress and anxiety and even boost our self-esteem.
At The Rumba Foundation, we want to ensure the very best clinical care is available to our pets when they need it. We support specific projects that have a direct impact on companion animal health and we are particularly interested in projects that benefit both animal and human health.
The Rumba Foundation does not support research involving any animals specifically bred or kept for the purpose of research, but it may support clinical trials designed specifically to improve the health or welfare of those animals.
Our Ascot Fund Raising Event
On the 12th of July 2017we organised a day out at Ascot Races to raise funds. We had a wonderful day, the rain held off and the sun came out.
We had a great lunch, an auction, ‘heads n tails’ and of course the racing. A great day was had by all.
£17,000 …The total fund generated on the day was just over £17,000 – well done everyone and thanks to you all.
