RSPCA Isle of Wight and Pets at Home is offering animal lovers an insight into the work they do – as part of a fundraising campaign – to help tackle animal cruelty.

Over 400 Pets at Home stores are taking part in supporting more than 80 branches across England and Wales as part of the fundraising weekend.

In-store games will take place at Pets at Home, Newport, today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday).

All the money raised goes towards supporting the RSPCA on the Isle of Wight and the role it plays in caring for and rehoming animals.

As previously reported, the RSPCA site in Godshill recently underwent a revamp due to an increase in demand.

Chris Sherwood, Chief Executive at the RSPCA, said:

“We are looking forward to teaming up with Pets at Home and hope that throughout the weekend animal lovers will support their local RSPCA branch and the incredible work that they do in caring for pets and rehoming animals in need.

“As a charity, we rely on donations and volunteers to ensure our network of incredible branches and centres can continue to help animals. The RSPCA rescue more than 100,000 animals every year and we wouldn’t be able to do that without the generous donations of our supporters and fellow animal lovers.”

During the weekend, Pets at Home customers will have the opportunity to donate to the RSPCA at the checkout, as well as support local branch activity which helps the animal welfare charity to continue to create a world that is kinder to animals.
