First national pet rehoming program of its kind in Australia

Announcement: Well done!!

PetRescue and PETstock join forces to bring rescue pets out of cages and into the community. In the first national pet rehoming program of its kind in Australia, PetRescue and PETstock are proud to announce the 2009 In-Store adoption program.

The program will link rescues groups with PETstock stores, giving rescue pets the opportunity to meet and interact with potential adopters in store. PETstock General Manager of Marketing, Matt Taylor said, “PETstock is very excited about joining forces with PetRescue and the many hundreds of shelters they support around the country. Too many people will purchase a new puppy or kitten in a pet store without really thinking about what is required to responsibly own this animal and this subsequently results in the animal ending up in a shelter. Through our large number of stores and our strong online presence (www.petstock.com.au ) we think we can help PetRescue make a real difference and rehome these animals to families who can and will care for them properly.

Adoption advisors will be on hand to help adopters choose the best pet for their family. All pets in the program will come vet checked, vaccinated, wormed, microchipped and de-sexed and ready to go to their new homes. Finding the ideal rescue pet has never been easier!
