During December the Support Adoption for Pets held their Santa Paws appeal at all their Pets at Home stores.
All the staff at Middlesbrough store supported by a team from SARA asked customers to contribute 50p towards a Christmas dinner for animals in rescue centres. It was a tremendous effort and the support by customers was outstanding.
In the month £2,897 was raised. This was split between Support Adoption For Pets and SARA. This resulted in a cheque being presented to SARA for £1448.50. This will help SARA look after the animals.
The animals at SARA were given a Christmas dinner of chicken, beef and pork together with the trimmings. There was so much food that they had the same on Boxing Day. Our thanks go out to all the customers who kindly donated.
The little dog in the picture is Sam who was rescued 2 years ago with a deformed foot. After an appeal to raise funds to cover his treatment and 7 operations later he has finally been given the all clear and now he just needs physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to finish the job. In two weeks time he can run off lead for the first time since the treatment began.
