Ap-paws after pet funds drive
Colleagues at the Pets At Home stores in Dewsbury and Birstall have helped to raise more than Â£5,000 during the annual Support Adoption For Pets' (SAFP) Santa Paws appeal.
The two stores accrued £5,944.31 during the build up to Christmas.
Throughout December, customers shopping at the two stores were encouraged to donate 50p at the tills to help provide a Christmas dinner for pets spending the festive season in a rescue centre.
Pets At Home in Dewsbury raised £3,151.71 for homeless pets, which will be split equally between Barnsley And District Animal Welfare and the SAFP. The Birstall store raised £2,792.60 for homeless pets, which will be split equally between Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue and the SAFP.
Support Adoption For Pets fundraising manager Amy Wilson said: “It’s amazing to see that so many people were able to come together and make Christmas special by donating a dinner for those pets without a loving forever home.”
Nearly three million meals were served up nationally thanks to the campaign.
