Pets at Home has teamed up with the RSPCA to encourage pet owners to purchase a ticket for £1 as part of an initiative run by the charity.
Those tickets enter customers into a raffle for a number of prizes, including dog sitting vouchers and pet portrait experiences. The chain has been selling ‘peel and reveal’ tickets to help animals in need this autumn.
Pets at Home said: “To know that this money will go towards supporting fantastic rescue centres who work to help unwanted and abandoned pets is a real motivator to do the best we can. We called for all local pet owners and animal lovers to get onboard and donate whatever they could to this important cause.”
Sarah Colberg, senior corporate partnerships manager at RSPCA, added: “We are delighted to once again be supported by Pets at Home colleagues and customers as they raise vital funds to support the RSPCA’s work to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to animals.
“Our 24-hour helpline receives a call on average every 30 seconds and last year alone we received more than one million calls and rescued over 114,000 animals. We are only able to be there for animals in need due to generous donations and support, so thank you to everyone for getting involved.”
