Store and char­ity raise vi­tal funds for res­cues

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

LLANELLI res­i­dents are be­ing en­cour­aged to help res­cue pets in need this year through fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives at their lo­cal Pets At Home store.

Grant-giv­ing an­i­mal char­ity Sup­port Adoption For Pets has launched its new Char­ity of the Year ini­tia­tive, which sees res­cue cen­tres across the UK and Pets at Home stores work­ing to­gether to raise vi­tal funds for the res­cues.

The re­la­tion­ship will be a unique chance for res­cues to raise aware­ness of their work in the com­mu­nity. Pets at Home Llanelli will be rais­ing money for Cats Pro­tec­tion Car­marthen­shire and will kick­start the year-long col­lab­o­ra­tion with a fundrais­ing ap­peal this sum­mer.

Sup­port Adoption For Pets is ask­ing Pets At Home stores across the UK to raise an am­bi­tious £500,000 for its pet res­cue cen­tres. Not only will res­cues be able to hero their work, they will also be able to utilise re­sources in the Pets at Home store, in­clud­ing ac­cess to the com­mu­nity boards and do­nated pallets of stock.

There will be a range of ac­tiv­i­ties tak­ing place un­til June 13, with Pets at Home cus­tomers and an­i­mal lovers in the area able to in­ter­act with the res­cue cen­tre team. Cus­tomers will be en­cour­aged to do­nate either at store tills, or via the Sup­port Adoption For Pets web­site.

A do­na­tion of just 50p will fund break­fast for a res­cue pet, while £1 will fund meals through­out the day. £5 will pro­vide food for a week and £15 will fund the en­tire month of food for a res­cue pet.
