Open­ing hearts to love and loy­alty

Isis Town and Country - - News -

IT’S THE sea­son for love and while many peo­ple are fo­cussed on find­ing a date this Valen­tine’s Day, The Pet Foun­da­tion to­gether with Pet­barn is en­cour­ag­ing Aus­tralians to open their hearts to a pet in need. In time for the month of love, Pet­barn Bund­aberg is host­ing its an­nual Pet Dat­ing event on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 13. The aim of the event is to find for­ever homes for a num­ber of pets that have pre­vi­ously been dis­placed. Im­por­tantly, The Pet Foun­da­tion aims to find long-term so­lu­tions for pets and pet par­ents, with the lo­cal Pet­barn store part­ner­ing with the RSPCA Queens­land. “We are pas­sion­ate about help­ing pets find the per­fect home,” Pet­barn Bund­aberg store man­ager Tammy Vaughan said. “Pets give back so much in terms of the love and loy­alty and they help us be­come bet­ter hu­mans by teach­ing us pa­tience and re­spon­si­bil­ity.” The event it­self will run from ap­prox­i­mately 11am-3pm and will in­volve be­tween four and six pets in­clud­ing cats and kit­tens. If peo­ple do find a per­fect match they will be able to go through the pet adop­tion process in-store on the day. Most im­por­tantly, while the adop­tion fee set by the lo­cal char­ity is col­lected by Pet­barn Adop­tions, 100% of this fee is re­turned to the char­ity. All cats and dogs are de-sexed, vac­ci­nated and mi­cro-chipped be­fore be­ing brought into store. Pet­barn Adop­tions is com­mit­ted to re­spon­si­ble pet own­er­ship and an­i­mal wel­fare all year round.
