Back after a successful run last year, the 3rd Annual Pet Food Drive organised by Pet Lovers Centre Malaysia will commence from 1st to 16th December 2018. All Pet Lovers Centres and The Pet Safaris across the nation will be taking part in the latest pet food drive campaign, allowing Malaysians to help our furry friends stay fed and healthy this holiday.
Based on the theme of ‘Stomachs Full, Dreams Come True!’, this pet food drive aims to lower the day-to-day food costs and fill the bowls of shelter dogs and cats, which in turn helps alleviate the financial burdens faced by animal welfare groups.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to encourage our customers to support animals in need, the Pet Food Drive allows us to reach out to animal welfare groups nationwide. Since 2016, we have collected a total of 2642.71kg of food worth RM56,334 and we hope the positive trend continues this year,” says Bryan Boo, Operations Director of Pet Lovers Centre Malaysia.
Which animal welfare group will the Pet Food Drive Benefit?
The food collected from this year’s campaign will be allocated equally to four beneficiaries: Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary (NANAS), PAWS Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), Save A Stray Malaysia (SASM) and Second Chance Animal Society (SCAS).
The PAWS animal shelter takes in surrendered animals at its shelter and prepare them for adoption and now looks after over 500 dogs and cats. Pet Lovers Centre has been a long-term partner of PAWS as the pet retail chain does their best to help the animal shelter manage the welfare of strays. Besides the Pet Food Drive, Pet Lovers Centre also collects donation as well as providing an adoption space for PAWS through their Adopt 1st program.
Pet Lovers Centre Malaysia currently has 29 retail stores operating across Klang Valley, Johor Bahru and Penang. It is the leading pet retailer in the country, striving to provide the best solutions for pet owners and enable them to give the best care for their pets. Pet Lovers Centre Malaysia is also an advocate for stray animals and the Adopt 1st Centre at SS2 Central.
The food drive ends this Sunday so do your part before it’s too late!
