National Pet Adoption Day
On Saturday 15 February, PETstock stores across the country will play host to pet rescue organisations as part of the sixth annual National Pet Adoption Day (NPAD) led by PETstock’s charity PETstock Assist and leading not-for-profit organisation PetRescue.
The initiative urges would-be pet owners to think more responsibly about pet ownership and reconsider their buying options to help break the cycle of pet homelessness.
Last year’s campaign saw over 1,000 rescue pets find loving homes. There is still more work to do, with an estimated 200,000 pets living unclaimed in Australian shelters and pounds across Australia. In 2020, PETstock hopes to outmatch last year’s adoption numbers and find even more healthy, happy pets forever homes.
All pets available for adoption receive up-to-date vaccines, are desexed and have undergone a full health assessment.
Pet adoption experts from local rescue groups will also be in attendance to answer any questions and assist with the adoption process.
Pets of all sizes, breeds and ages will be up for adoption. So, whether you are looking for a four- legged fur-ball or something with scales, you are bound to find the perfect pet for your family.
For more information and all enquiries please visit the PETstock website or the PetRescue website.
