Amazing Donation from Blackburn Pets At Home

18th Jan 2016

Look at this incredible donation that we have received from Adoption For Pets for £1,013.67! This money was raised for RSPCA Altham by our wonderful supporters at Pets at Home in Blackburn! 

Over the Christmas period, the staff at the busy store on Nova Scotia Retail Park were asking customers if they would like to donate 50p to help an unwanted animal over the festive period by buying an animal a Christmas dinner. Well, the customers throughout Britain really did dig deep, and donated an incredible 1.5 million Christmas dinners for abandoned animals!

Our picture shows the managers Juliet and Emma from Pets at Home, presenting the fantastic cheque to our Branch Administrator Steve. The staff at Blackburn Pets at Home are passionate supporters of our work at RSPCA Altham, and have nominated us as their charity of the year a number of times. Our Branch Manager Ken Harrison said "We are so pleased to receive this cheque, and it is very humbling to see that animal lovers still care about unwanted pets at such an expensive and stressful time of year. I'd like to thank all of the customers who donated, and to thank all of the staff at the store who really do an amazing job in raising awareness and funds for us. Well done everybody!"

Support Adoption for Pets is Pets At Home's animal welfare charity, and each year, they donate millions of pounds to  adoption centres and animal homes throughout the UK. 

Thank you once again Pets at Home Blackburn, and Support Adoption For Pets for your amazing support.
