Local pet store to raise cash for the kitties
01 March 2017
Shoppers at the Pets at Home store on the Boucher Road, Belfast will get the chance to help unwanted cats as part of a national fundraising weekend.
Volunteers from Cats Protection’s Belfast Adoption Centre will be at the store from 10 – 12 March 2017 to raise funds for its vital work taking in unwanted cats and finding them new homes. Cats Protection's representatives will be greeting members of the public, offering cat care advice and handing out lots of cat related freebies!
Simon’s Cat pin badges, the design kindly provided by creator Simon Tofield, will be on sale for the benefit of Cats Protection while customers can also donate 50 pence towards the cost of a cat in its care and make further donations at the till.
This is the fifth time the fundraising weekend has been held by Pets At Home and Support Adoption For Pets, the charity established and supported by Pets at Home, with last year’s event raising a staggering £43,000 nationally to help unwanted cats.
Belfast Adoption Centre Manager Bel Livingstone said: “We’re hoping our visit to the store will be really successful in terms of raising funds. Every penny really does count as it will help us to provide food, shelter, veterinary care and much more for the unwanted cats in our care.”
George Lingwood, Pets At Home’s Retail Operations Director, said: “We’re passionate about supporting good causes wherever possible and Cats Protection is no exception. We’re calling all of our customers to get behind us and help make this year’s three-day campaign yet another one to remember.”
