Terry Heath made a huge difference to PetSavers with her legacy
Teresa Heath, known as Terry, always had a love of animals and owned a number of beloved pets throughout her life, including Prince the Collie, two English Spaniels called Skipper and Teegar, an African Grey parrot known as Peter and Cocky Rocky the Scarlet Macaw.
Later in life, after owning Kirsty the English Bull Terrier, she became smitten with the breed and went on to own, breed and show many English Bull Terriers.
Terry had long dreamed of owning boarding kennels and made this a reality when she opened the Holloville Pet Motel in Falkirk. The business was very successful and became a holiday home for many dogs, cats, small furries and exotic birds.
Terry was passionate about the health and welfare of dogs, and was particularly inspired by her own English Bull Terriers to investigate diseases that they were predisposed to. She engaged with vets to set up free health screening at dog shows and became very interested in epidermal, cardiovascular, neurological and behavioural problems associated with the breed.
On her death at the age of 72, she left a very generous legacy for research into canine diseases. We look forward to carrying out Terry’s wishes in improving pet health.

Legacies are a crucial form of funding for organisations such as ours as they allow us to plan for the future and continue to fund vital clinical research to help pets.
