Santa Paws Appeal 2019
Throughout December, Pets at Home stores across the UK worked hard to support the Santa Paws appeal by collecting donations to provide meals for homeless pets. Stores helped provide nearly three million dinners for homeless pets across the country and we were selected by the Yate store as the beneficiary for their fundraising efforts.
We started the appeal with a weekend of cake sales and a treasure hunt. Our volunteers visited the store in Yate every weekend to help with the collections so a big shout out to our volunteer team for all their support. Generous customers donated an extra £1 at the till, and some added even more to buy a dog or cat a dinner and help us raise hundreds of pounds to help local vulnerable animals. We raised a grand total of £2728.13!!!! Thank you so much to all the pets at home staff, customers and to our troop of volunteers who have made this possible.
Every year the Pets at Home charity (Support Adoption for Pets) supports more than 1,000 pet rehoming organisations across the UK by awarding grants and running fundraising campaigns with Pets at Home. Support Adoption for Pets Have also supported CDCH recently with a grant to purchase a new piece of equipment, watch this space for more news in Spring 2020.
