Rescue pets in Grantham given a helping paw this Christmas thanks to nationwide appeal
A pet store in Grantham is taking part in a nationwide campaign to make sure that no pet is forgotten this Christmas.
Over the festive period, Pets at Home in Grantham will be helping to raise money for rescue pets at Hound From The Pound as part of the annual Santa Paws appeal by Support Adoption For Pets, the UK’s largest grant giving pet charity.
The appeal, which launches on Friday (November 22) and runs until Christmas Eve, is raising money to help pay for essential vet bills and care costs over the festive period.
The store team in Pets at Home Grantham will be raising money for Hound From The Pound in Grantham, along with other Pets At Home stores across the UK, which will be raising funds for other local rescue centres.
Customers can help by simply donating at store tills.
Vicky Martin, store manager at Pets at Home Grantham, said: “We’re proud and excited to be raising money for Hound From The Pound as part of this year’s Santa Paws appeal, and we hope our customers and the people of Grantham will get involved and support us with our fundraising.
“We have ambitious fundraising plans, and every donation will go towards helping a rescue pet in need.”
The Santa Paws appeal marks the final fundraising event of 2019 for Support Adoption For Pets, which launched its Charity of the Year program earlier this year.
Over the course of the year, rescue centres across the UK have been building close relationships with their local Pets at Home stores, working together to raise vital funds for the rescues, kicking off with a Summer Fundraiser, which raised more than £683,000 in May and June.
The Charity of the Year program has provided a unique opportunity for rescues to raise awareness of their work in the local community, with the Santa Paws appeal offering one final fundraising drive during the festive season.
