Charity of the Month
Each month zooplus.co.uk teams up with a British pet charity in order to give you a chance to help animals that are not as fortunate as your own.
It is easy and does not include complicated credit card payments or huge amounts of cash! You can now donate your zooPlusPoints, reward points you receive with each and every purchase at zooplus.co.uk, £1 = 1 Point, and help out. With your next order at zooplus you can do something good for a bunch of animals that are currently living in care. Simply add the amount of points you would like to donate to your shopping basket and proceed with your regular order at zooplus.co.uk.
Each month we use donated zooPlusPoints to put together a fantastic food & accessories parcel which we send to the pet charity of the month. Your generosity means a lot to pets and charity staff every month.
When you donate in May, June & July, your points will go towards our Charity of the Month partner: Oakwood Dog Rescue.
So how does it work?
You can donate between 10 and 250 zooPlusPoints. Just log in to myzooplus and add the points you'd like to donate to your shopping cart. This is easy: no need of extra payments, and your donation goes straight into Oakwood Dog Rescue. Please note, you can only collect zooPlusPoints if you are a registered customer. Points can only be donated when a purchase is made.
All about Oakwood Dog Rescue
Oakwood Dog Rescue was founded in 2009 by Gill Williams, founder of Oakwood Canine Services, initially to support dog training clients who could no longer care for their dogs. Since then it has grown into a 15 kennel rescue centre, with a number of foster homes available to house dogs whilst they are waiting to find their forever homes. We take in dogs from all over the UK and also take in dogs with behavioral issues.
Our policy is One Home Only, we carefully match dogs to suitable families through a series of applications, introductions, days out and once the dog is reserved they go on a two week home trial to ensure the dog and adopters are happy before the adoption goes through.
All of our dogs are neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped, flea and worm treated, health checked and groomed as part of the adoption package. They also receive a course of free training and then half price training for the rest of the dogs life. This is to ensure that any issues are worked through and the dog stays in that home. Because of this we have a very low return rate on our dogs.
Oakwood Dog Rescue receive no government funding and have to work extremely hard to raise funds in order to ensure the continuation of the organisation. The are extremely grateful to anyone who donates to us.
