PETS IN Spain, the La Marina based animal charity has this week announced a new, high profile patron to represent their charity in Spain and throughout Europe.
Grant Harrold normally known as “The Royal Butler” lives at Highgrove and is a member of the Royal Household of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.
Known as Britain’s official etiquette expert, both in the UK and around the world, he is the personal Aide to HRH Princess Katarina, who is first Cousin to HRH Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge.
Grant Harrold has featured on many programmes during the past 18 years as a commentator, broadcaster and presenter for both TV and radio.
Based in Gloucestershire, Grant runs an etiquette and household consultancy company, Nicholas Veitch Limited.
He also gives talks and demonstrations on afternoon tea etiquette, dinner party etiquette and similar etiquette based events.
He appeared regularly as the butler on the reality television programme Country House at Woburn Abbey between 2000 and 2003 whilst working for Robin Russell, 14th Duke of Bedford and his son Andrew Russell, 15th Duke of Bedford.
In 2012, he featured in the BBC Three series Be Your Own Boss. And in 2013 Grant featured with Ruth Watson in Ruth Watson Means Business, in which he helped Watson improve Fawsley Hall in Northampton.
Grant also featured in the television series “You Can’t Get The Staff for Channel 4, 2014 and in 2016 Grant appeared with Michael Portillo in his BBC series, Great Railway Journeys.
A Pets In Spain spokesperson said today “We are thrilled that Grant Harrold is supporting us and is now the patron of our charity. His protocols and high standards of service reflect our approach to animal rescue and rehoming. He is the ideal person to help us raise our profile and attain more support for our work helping animals in need”.
The Pets In Spain charity receives no government funding and there is no authority in Spain charged with the task of enforcing animal welfare laws like the RSPCA does in the UK.
A dedicated multi-national team of volunteers not only rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals themselves, they also provide help and assistance to other animal rescue organisations and via their collaborating veterinary clinics will underwrite important veterinary treatment to animals rescued by members of the public.
Pets In Spain is continually looking for donations to expand their animal rescue and welfare campaigns. Their biggest expense is Vets bills and resources are constantly depleting. They have foster homes and other volunteer staffed places help more abandoned animals.
Donations are used to pay for veterinary fees, medication, food, transport costs and the occasional stay in temporary accommodation.
The team at Pets In Spain are currently homing between 30 and 40 displaced pets per month and have a target of 100. With more funding this target is more than achievable.
