Grantham pet store launches campaign to support homeless pets
Residents of Grantham are being encouraged to help local rescue pets in need this summer at Pets At Home.
Pets At Home, on Sankt Augustin Way, Grantham, will be raising money in need of pets like Elsa, a three year old hyperactive and loving Husky, as part of a summer fundraising event launched by the UK’s largest donor of pet welfare grants, Support Adoption For Pets.
Elsa was brought in to the Radcliffe Animal Centre after she was found living outside in poor conditions.
Money raised by Pets At Home Grantham for the summer fundraiser will go towards helping Elsa and other pets like her at rescue centres across the UK.
Support Adoption For Pets has challenged Pets At Home stores across the UK to raise over £550K for pet rescue centres between June 6 - July 3.
There will be a range of in store fundraising activities taking place to raise awareness of the appeal throughout June, including the opportunity to buy a £1 scratch card, and the chance to win prizes including the likes of five 50K 4inch HD TV’s, 20 Echo Dot’s, National Trust memberships and Love2Shop vouchers.
Fundraising manager at Support Adoption For Pets, Amy Wilson, said: “Elsa’s story is a prime example of how the funds raised throughout the summer fundraising drive can help make a massive difference to the life of a pet in a rescue centre.
“We’re always so impressed by the great effort that stores go to to raise money for their local rescues, and we can’t wait to see what this event brings.”
Grantham,Pets At Home store manager Vicky Martin added: “We’re delighted to be raising money for pets in need, and hope that the people of Grantham will support us on our fundraising mission.
“Last year we raised £240 for Radcliffe Animal Centre and this year the team are looking forward to raising even more money, as we hope that customers will be excited by the great range of prizes to be won.”
