With your saving you could – Make a Donation to a Dog Charity!
This year we have been supporting a local animal welfare charity close to our headquarters and our hearts called Almost Home NI. Our Ecommerce manager Annie, and Key Accounts Manager Olya both adopted dogs in 2019 from Almost Home NI and were so impressed with how the centre runs and how well cared for all the animals were. The centre is volunteer-run and over 190 people give their time and energy to help to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome companion animals. If budgets are tight and you can’t afford to support financially you could also look at donating your time and skills as a professional groomer to help these animals have the best chance of finding a new home Supporting these charities will save animals lives and a great bonus if it creates some potential new customers.
