Petbarn Woolloongabba have partnered with the RSPCA to Clear The Shelters and help loveable animals find their forever home. The initiative is part of the RSPCA’s Clear the Shelters campaign which helps re home hundreds of animals throughout the country every year.
Petbarn Woolloongabba, along with over 100 stores nationally, will be opening-up their Adoption Centre, and will have a range of animals big and small, including dogs, cats, and guinea pigs available to adopt at a small fee. Petbarn in-store Adoption Centres have assisted over 47,000 animals in finding a forever home in the past eight years. They hope to re home another 500 pets across the three-day event. All adoption pets have undergone a comprehensive vet check and been de-sexed. With over 52 co-located Petbarn and Greencross Vets under one roof, both aim to provide the best resources and services for all animals and pet parents in one central and convenient location.
Placing these animals in high-traffic locations, such as Petbarn Woolloongabba, will help them get adopted faster and the RSPCA is hoping to see as many of them as possible find new homes thanks to this partnership. Local Petbarn Woolloongabba Store Manager, Carmila Filege said this is an important event for Petbarn as they look to encourage even more people to ‘adopt, don’t shop’. “Adoption is one of the most rewarding and valuable things you can do – both for the animal and the individual. They bring you companionship, unconditional love and it’s amazing to see pets, who may have otherwise been left behind, thrive in their forever home. We are passionate about pet companionship, which is why we partner with shelters all year round to ensure as many animals as possible have a second chance at their happily ever after. Through working with our adoption partners, we have helped re home thousands of rescue pets” said Carmila.
