Pets at Home annual charitable giving tops £5 million
Pets at Home has announced that it donated more than £5 million to charities in the year to March 2022.
The milestone was reached through Pets at Home Foundation leading a number of fundraising activities across the retailer’s stores, Vets4Pets practices and Groom Rooms in the year.
This included its annual Santa Paws appeal that encourages customers to make donations to help feed rescue pets over the festive period. Funds were also donated through Pets at Home’s VIP Lifelines Scheme, through which VIP members can “raise Lifelines” for their favourite animal charity each time they shop with Pets at Home. Lifelines are then converted into vouchers for charities to spend in-store to help the animals in their care.
Pets at Home’s charitable giving also focused on the positive impact pets can have on people’s physical and mental wellbeing.
During the year, the retailer donated more than ever before through awards to over 750 organisations, ranging from some of the largest national animal charities through to small, local rescue centres.
Louise Stonier, Pets at Home’s chief people and culture officer, and chair of The Pets at Home Foundation, said: “The last two years have been tough for the charitable sector, so we were determined to increase our support to help ease the burden for these important organisations.
“I am immensely proud of what has been achieved and grateful to our incredible customers and colleagues for their continuing support. Pets have an amazing ability to enrich our lives, whether through the pet owner bond or through the great work they do with people in need.
“This is why we are so passionate about giving our support to help these brilliant organisations to continue assisting many more people and pets for years to come.”
