Love knows no breed

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

FUR ba­bies big and small will de­scend upon PET­s­tock on Fe­bru­ary 9 as part of the fifth an­nual Na­tional Pet Adop­tion Day.

The ini­tia­tive, run by PET­s­tock’s char­ity arm PET­s­tock As­sist and adop­tion site PetRes­cue, is hop­ing to dou­ble the num­ber of pets adopted dur­ing 2018 to 1000.

In an Aus­tralian first, all breed la­bels will be re­moved from pets listed on petres­ in the week lead­ing up to NPAD, to en­sure as many lov­ing pets find their homes.

Co-or­di­na­tor Jess Guil­foyle said she hoped the move helped peo­ple for­get any pre­con­cep­tions they have about breed char­ac­ter­is­tics and get to know the an­i­mals for who they are.
