Saving the lives of our furry friends
THANKS to the Petbarn Adoption Centre in Coffs Harbour and generous locals, the lives of 66 pets have been saved.
Since the pet adoption program launched, Petbarn stores across the country, including Petbarn Coffs Harbour has been finding the perfect home for pets in need through the Petbarn Adoption Centres.
In partnership with local animal charities, the lives of 10,000 pets including dogs, cats and rabbits across Australia have been saved from being euthanised after being adopted.
"We at Petbarn are passionate about pets and would like to see a future where every animal has a loving place to call home," Petbarn Coffs Harbour store manager, Adam Rose said.
"We just really want to thank Coffs Coast locals for their ongoing generosity to help us reach this fantastic achievement."
To ensure the success of the adoption program, Petbarn invests more than$150,000 every year enabling each store to offer the highest standards of accommodation for the animals.
This includes installing specially designed custom-built enclosures and ongoing staff training to teach them to personally care for all pets up for adoption. Importantly, all adoption fees collected by Petbarn are returned to the partner charity.
The Petbarn team remains dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of pet adoption and encourage Coffs Coast locals thinking about adding a furry friend to the family to consider adopting first.
"We're hoping local families will continue to open their hearts and homes to these gorgeous animals," Rose said.
"Our Adoption Centre is always open and we welcome Coffs Coast locals to come in and speak to one of our friendly staff about meeting some of the loveable pets that are looking for a new family."
