MELBOURNE | So, now that the pictures of the cute puppies have got your attention, we’ve got something to tell you. This Sunday 5 February between 10:00am and 2:00pm, local pet rescue organisations will visit PETstock stores across Victoria to raise awareness of pet adoption as part of National Pet Adoption Day.
Every year, approximately 230,000 healthy pets remain unclaimed in Australia’s pounds and shelters. That’s roughly 110,000 dogs and 120,000 cats left homeless each year with over 100,000 killed. Getting involved in National Pet Adoption Day will help reduce these numbers – every little bit counts!
PETstock is urging the community to come into a store and learn about the importance of pet adoption – It’s a chance for Melburnians to have a cuddle with some rescue pets in-store or follow up with their local pet rescue groups to find an adorable pet in need of a forever home. Between the cold, hard stats and the cute photos of puppies, we’re sure you’ll want to be involved. We know that we will be.
