Pet rescue groups will pay a visit to PETstock Cranbourne to help homeless pets find a home with a family that will love them forever.
PetRescue Co-Founder, Vickie Davy said people would have the opportunity to adopt a pet that’s the perfect fit for them on National Pet Adoption Day which will be held at PETStock Cranbourne on Sunday 4 February 2018 from 10am – 2pm.
“Pets of all types, sizes, breeds and ages will be available for adoption so everyone is sure to find their perfect match,” she said.
“The rescue group can give you an overview of the animal’s behaviour and personality so you know exactly what you’re going to get”
Gyton Grantley, host of Channel TEN’s Pooches at Play, has thrown his weight behind the national campaign that encourages Australians to adopt rather than shop for pets.
Mr Grantley, who grew up with pets and now looks after an adorable chocolate Labrador George, says that close to 40 per cent of homes have pets and hopes to encourage as many owners as possible to consider adopting their next animal, instead of purchasing.
“Increasing numbers of Australians are realising there are tens of thousands of homeless pets out there waiting for someone to love them, and they’re choosing to adopt.”
Every year, approximately 200,000 healthy pets find themselves homeless in Australia’s pounds and shelters – a statistic PETstock and PetRescue are determined to change.
PETstock Chief Executive Officer, Shane Young, says if just one in five pet seekers chose to adopt a pet instead of shop, pet homelessness could end in Australia.
“Our goal is for every rescue pet to find their forever home, and we’re getting closer,” he says.
Before joining their forever family, adopted pets are de-sexed, microchipped, vaccinated and treated for parasites, as well as having undergone a comprehensive veterinary assessment.
