On Sunday 4 February 2018, pet rescue organisations will pay a visit to PETstock stores across Australia with homeless animals to help them find families that will love them forever.
The initiative, led by PETstock’s charity foundation PETstock Assist, in partnership with not-for-profit animal rescue organisation PetRescue, aims to raise awareness of pet adoption as part of National Pet Adoption Day.
Every year, approximately 200,000 healthy pets find themselves homeless in Australia’s pounds and shelters – a statistic PETstock is determined to change.
PETstock Chief Executive Officer, Shane Young, said if just one in five pet seekers chose to adopt a pet instead of shop, we could end pet homelessness in Australia.
Before joining their forever family, adopted pets are de-sexed, vaccinated and treated for parasites as well as having undergone a comprehensive veterinary and behaviour assessment.
