Pet store helps raise £50,000
STAFF at Pets at Home in Burscough helped raise £50,000 to help animals in need this winter.
For 10 days, they worked to raise money for animal rescues in and around Burscough by inviting customers to purchase a Peel & Reveal ticket for £1, as well as hosting volunteer collections and fundraising, with all proceeds going to charity.
The initiative, which was run by the RSPCA and raised £50,000 in England and Wales, will help the RSPCA continue to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in desperate need of care.
Sarah Yould, store manager at Pets at Home Burscough, said: “What a fantastic result.
“We had so much fun raising money and are so grateful to all our generous customers for taking part and donating much needed funds.
“It’s great to know that this money will go towards supporting fantastic rescue centres who work to help animals who have suffered from neglect and cruelty.”
Sarah Colberg, senior corporate partnerships manager from the RSPCA, said: “We are delighted to once again be supported by Pets at Home colleagues and customers who have all helped raise vital funds to support the RSPCA’s work to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals.”
