Rochdale Observer - - YOUR VIEWS BIG PICTURE -

CUS­TOMERS at a Rochdale pet store helped raise more than £1.7m to feed an­i­mals in res­cue cen­tres.

The team at Pets at Home on Kingsway Re­tail Park, Wall­head Road, con­trib­uted to­wards £1,704,362 for an ap­peal run by the char­ity, Sup­port Adop­tion for Pets.

Cus­tomers were in­vited to do­nate the sum of 50p to help feed home­less pets – a scheme which was run in Pets at Home stores across the UK.

Rochdale Pets at Home store man­ager, Al­lan Fer­ries, said: “What a fan­tas­tic re­sult.

“We had so much fun rais­ing money and are so grate­ful to all of our gen­er­ous cus­tomers for tak­ing part and do­nat­ing much needed funds.

“It’s great to know that this money will also go to­wards help­ing these char­i­ties to keep aban­doned pets healthy and happy un­til they find a per­ma­nent home.”

Amy Wil­son, Sup­port Adop­tion For Pets’ fundrais­ing man­ager, added: “This year we set an am­bi­tious tar­get to help raise enough money to feed more home­less pets than ever be­fore. We would like to thank every­body who do­nated to Pets at Home Rochdale.”
