PetStock Cambridge is joining a national pet adoption initiative this month and will take part in National Pet Adoption Day on March 13.
March is PetStock Assist’s National Pet Adoption month. The initiative teams the organisation with local partner animal rescue groups to put rescue pets up for adoption or fostering through selected stores around the country.
PetStock Cambridge in Leamington’s Shakespeare St will team with the Pound Hound Rescue Charitable Trust on March 13, opening from 10am to 2pm to match would-be pet owners with animals needing a home.
The Pound Hound Rescue Charitable Trust is a volunteer-run non-profit organisation dedicated to finding homes for stray and abandoned pound dogs and puppies. It works closely with the Waipā District Council, as well as with other pounds in the North Island, to find homes for the increasing number of dogs relinquished to Animal Control in Waipā and beyond.
National Pet Adoption Month is intended to change the lives of rescue pets and help educate people to help break the cycle of pet homelessness in New Zealand.
PetStock Assist, the charity arm of the national retailer, has rehomed more than 12,000 pets at its National Pet Adoption Days, an annual event that started six years ago.
