Pet lovers helped raise £1.7m to help feed rescued animals
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.”
