Best Friends Pet Care SuperCentre is helping pet rescue organisations, including Forever Friends Animal Rescue, to encourage people to Think Adoption First and help dogs, cats, puppies and kittens find a new home.
Hosting Adoption Days aimed at connecting loving owners with their new Best Friend, Best Friend Pet Care SuperCentre’s stores across Australia are working to help educate locals to enjoy the benefits of a new four pawed member of the family, while rescuing an animal in need.
Every year 200,000 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are taken to animal shelters. Wheelchair bound Miss Smithy is one them, having been dumped then rescued by Forever Friends Animal Rescue.
A loveable 8 year old Stumpy Heeler, Miss Smithy is on the hunt for a new home.
As a special needs pet, Best Friends Pet Care SuperCentre has provided assistance to Miss Smithy via their well known Our Vet services, along with some love and care from the Professional Groomers in store in one of their state of the art Salons, to prim and prep her in the hope of making her more appealing to find a new home.
Forever Friends Animal Rescue ensures that all pets up for adoption have been temperament-tested, desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested, wormed and flea-treated, needing only someone to welcome them into their home to complete their journey.
A Best Friends Pet Care SuperCentre spokesperson said the Adoption Days are a great opportunity to bring owners and pets in need of a loving home together, and says it is a chance to help educate locals on responsible pet care and ownership.
“The Adoption Days are really special because we meet animals who are just gorgeous but they are in desperate need of some love,” said a Best Friends spokesperson. “They provide an opportunity for people to come down and meet the dogs and cats up for adoption and find their new companion to give them a new start. We encourage all individuals thinking of owning a cat or dog to think adoption first.”
