July 31st is fast approaching and so Fund renewal time is upon us again. As I always and repeatedly say, it is important to renew your Fund protection in advance of the old period of cover having expired so that the old can dovetail with the new and you remain constantly on protection. Even in the off-peak time of year, your dog can cause injury or damage so there are always risks that should not be left unprotected.
I am delighted to report that many are heeding this area of personal responsibility in any event and thousands have already renewed. The Postman is even asking where all the extra letters are coming from! As of last Friday, it was encouraging to see that renewals are running 20% up on the same period last year so thank you one and all.
Fund claims in the year now ending have been on a par with previous years and are very good at about 40 in number. None of these was of a serious nature and more than 80% have already been discharged. Those that have yet to be concluded have only occurred in the last few weeks.
Thank you for your continued support which is appreciated. The Fund Office is open daily from 9.00 a.m. to 5 p.m. and if you have any query or issue, feel free to call us on 1800 222 444.
