We’ve been working closely with the UK’s leading national pet retailer, Pets at Home, and the charity, Support Adoption For Pets, for nearly a decade now. During this period, they have donated over £500,000 to support our work.
In 2012 we started working together through the Pets at Home Very Important Pets (VIP) Lifelines scheme, which has raised over £34,000 for pets in need.
In 2014, we launched our first rehoming and advice unit inside a Pets at Home store. This new scheme offers animal lovers visiting the Swindon branch in Wiltshire the opportunity to speak to Blue Cross experts about rehoming, pet care, and how to get involved with supporting the charity. Designed as a ‘one stop shop’ for pet advice, the new unit features a children’s area, an interactive rehoming bar where people can browse details of our pets needing homes, and a consultation area for pet owners to discuss rehoming and pet care.
