Liverpulians raise over ₤8,000 for rescue pets

LIVERPOOL has proven to be 1 of the most generous of the UK's Cities when it comes to helping animals in need, as over ₤8,000 was raised for Support Adoption for Pets' 'Santa Paws' Christmas appeal.

The charity's annual fundraising appeal took place in over 400 Pets at Home stores across the UK, with customers encouraged to donate 50p to provide a Christmas dinner for pets spending the festive season in a rescue.

Pets At Home Aintree raised an incredible standalone total of over ₤5,000, with stores Penny Lane, Wallesey and Burscough raising more than ₤1,000 each.

Support Adoption for Pets set an ambitious target of providing 1,500,000 meals for abandoned animals, yet fundraising efforts have been so great that over 2 million meals will be provided.

The following rescue centres will be benefiting from the generosity of customers in Liverpool Pets at Home stores:-

'Carla Lane Animals In Need'
'Horse Sense Wirral'
'Mersey and North Cheshire Retired Greyhound Trust'

Caroline Cassidy from Carla Lane Animals in Need said:- "We are overwhelmed by the tremendous support from our friends at Pets At Home in Aintree and Burscough and all their wonderful customers who have raised over ₤3,000 just for us. This will be of huge benefit to the 200+ animals in our care. Special thanks from Trustees, staff and of course four legged friends!"

Support Adoption for Pets Fundraising Manager, Amy Wilson, said:- "We are blown away by the remarkable charity fundraising that the Pets at Home storeshave delivered this Christmas... A record breaking, astonishing amount of money has been donated to very worthy local pet rescues, revealing the drive, creativity and sheer generosity of Pets at Home store teams and customers across the UK."
