Store's gift gives dogs charity a boost
Bristol Dog Action Welfare, which rescues greyhounds and lurchers, has received a £5,000 grant from a Bradley Stoke store.
Volunteer Geraldine Watkins, from the group, attended Pets at Home to collect the donation.
She also brought along three of the dogs being cared for by the team.
Support Adoption For Pets, the charity established and supported by Pets at Home, is responsible for the donation. The money will be used to fund the cost of kennelling space as well as neutering costs.
Support Adoption For Pets has raised more than £1.3 million in the past 12 months thanks to the fundraising efforts of store colleagues and customers.
Money has been used to provide financial support to animal welfare charities and local re-homing centres.
There are also dedicated adoption centres in many stores across the UK.
These centres are home to a range of different pets, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and other small animals, all looking for a second chance of happiness, often due to a change in their owner's circumstances.
The charity helped more than 450 re-homing centres last year.
