This February we've partnered up with St Giles Pet Food Bank to run a special charity campaign. In order to help feed as many pets as possible, zooplus will be DOUBLING all your zooPoint donations this month. The cost of living crisis has led to many pet owners having to make heart-breaking decisions. In order to prevent people in the local community being forced to surrender their pets, St Giles Pet Food Bank provides pet food parcels to pet owners on low incomes.
With your help and zooPoint donations, we'll be providing lots of hungry pets in Somerset with tasty meals!
St Giles Animal Centre based in Taunton, Somerset was seeing a large increase in animals being taken to rescue centres. They decided they needed to do something to help members of their local community keep animals in loving homes rather than surrendering them to shelters.
No pet should go hungry and no one should have to choose between feeding themselves or feeding their pets. Hard times can happen to anyone and, with pets in the family, there are more bowls to fill when money is tight.
To meet the needs of the local community, St Giles set up a Pet Food Bank, run by a team of wonderful volunteers.
We are always on the hunt for our next Charity of the Month which is why we are asking for YOUR help! If you know of any deserving, registered charities that could make good use out of pet food, toys and accessories then please send us a message via our Facebook Page!
