Kind-hearted shoppers at a Nottingham store have helped ensure pets get a ‘second chance of happiness’ after raising £1,000 for an animal sanctuary.
Caring customers at Pets at Home in Grantham have raised more than £3,000 during the store’s annual Santa Paws appeal – with animals at RSPCA Radcliffe set to benefit.
Evie Holmes, social media and marketing coordinator, said: “We are thrilled with the donation of £1,000, this money will really benefit us at the centre and help us to continue to rehabilitate the animals we have in our care.”
Staff from the centre were presented with a £1,000 cheque after members from the Grantham store visited the team on Wednesday, February 22.
Throughout December, customers shopping at the two stores were encouraged to donate 50p at the tills to help provide a Christmas dinner for pets spending the festive season in a rescue centre.
Hannah Snow, Sales Assistant at Pets at Home, said: “This money was raised for such a great charity at the Radcliffe RSPCA, a dedicated team and amazing volunteers do a great job.
“Our customers helped us raise over £3,000 with our Christmas pets dinners appeal, which was split between our two charities, one of them being the Radcliffe RSPCA. We hope the money helps give these animals a great start to a second chance of happiness. Also a big thanks to our customers, store team and volunteers in the Grantham Pets At Home who gave their donations and time.
“The RSPCA at Radcliffe team made us feel so welcome and showed us around before we presented them with the cheque.”
