Pets at Home Pentland Raise Almost £10,000
Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home partnered with Pets at Home’s Pentland store in 2019 raising an amazing £9,954.78 over the year.
Pets at Home run annual Support Adoption for Pets fundraising drives twice a year, and 50% of the money raised in the Pentland branch was generously donated to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, alongside all the funds raised from our own stall.
Our local volunteers held a stall once a month from April until November, and held a weekly stall during December. Not only a fantastic opportunity to raise vital funds but a great way to increase awareness of the Home and our work caring for lost and abandoned dogs and cats across Edinburgh and the Lothians.
We are so grateful to Gemma, Gary and the whole team at Pentland, as well as Lynn and the team at Support Adoption for Pets.
Lauren Walker, Community Fundraiser at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home, said:
“We are so grateful for the opportunity to fundraise at Pets at Home Pentland, and cannot put into words how much the money raised will help the dogs and cats in our care. It is a brilliant platform to shout about our work, as well as helping us raise important funds to rescue, reunite and rehome the hundreds of animals that come through our doors every year. As we receive no government or statutory funding, support such as this really does make a big difference. On behalf of all the dogs, cats and people at the Home: thank you so much!”
