Wisbech pet shop appeal will help vulnerable animals this Christmas
A WISBECH pet shop will be doing its bit to ensure Wisbech’s abandoned animals are not forgotten this Christmas.
Pets at Home’s Santa Paws appeal, now in its third year, will collect gifts and donations for abandoned animals during the festive season.
Between December 1 and 24, the store will be encouraging customers to buy an extra gift or make a donation to benefit a needy pet at a local animal rescue.
Customers can also choose to take part in the ‘round up to a �1’ initiative, whereby they opt to round up the cost of their purchases to the nearest pound, with the difference donated to local animal rescues.
Store Manager Dominic Baker said: “Our own research has shown that 75 per cent of pet owners will be buying their own pet a gift for under the tree this Christmas,
