20,000 kgs of food donated to at-risk pets in South Australia!
Another great win was achieved for pets in need during May, thanks to a fab collab between PetRescue and our incredible partners Mars Petcare and PETstock, to get food delivered to member rescue groups and community outreach organisations in need.
Pets across SA received a whopping $230,000 worth of quality pet food, generously donated by Mars Petcare. With PETstock assisting in distribution on the ground, PetRescue was able to facilitate this awesome initiative to bring whole and hearty happiness to (hungry!) pets in need!
“We work mostly with clients escaping domestic violence situations who leave with nothing, so a donation like this is massive to help set up crisis foster carers,” said Jennifer, Founder of Safe Pets and Safe Families, a local community group in Adelaide who were thrilled to receive over 1300 kgs of food donated for pets in their care.
“The foster homes are the backbone to any rehoming group, so any little bit that can be given to help the carers is extremely appreciated,” said Angela Webb, coordinator at Bridging the Gap - Greyhound Rehoming.
Recipient member groups and community organisations included Ginger Ninja Rescue, Lucky Little Paws Rescue and Adoption, Rescue Me Whiskers & Paws, KittyKat Angel Rescue, Tracies Loving Care, Cats in Crisis, Purrfect Paws Rescue Inc, Tiny Tails Rescue Adelaide Inc, Paws & Claws Adoptions Inc., Scruffer Lovers, Safe Pets Safe Families, Be The Change Animal Shelter Incorporated, Cat Adoption Foundation Incorporated, Bridging the Gap Greyhound Rehoming SA, Heart & Soul Inc, Anglican Community Care Inc, Wet noses Animal Rescue and Making A Difference Cat Rescue & Adoptions Inc.
These food donations are an ongoing part of PetRescue’s mission with Mars Petcare to provide millions of dollars worth of pet food to all vulnerable and at-risk pets across Australia.
