Opening hearts to love and loyalty
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.
