Keighley pet store’s massive dog charity funding
3:11pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
Keighley’s new Pets at Home store was the location for a huge donation to an animal charity.
The chain’s central region, which includes the town shop, has raised £100,000 for Dogs for the Disabled through an in-store raffle and various other fundraising projects since April.
Members of the charity, as well as Maxine Conley and her assistance dog, Fallan, recently visited the branch at Keighley Retail Park to pick up the mammoth cheque.
The charity provides trained dogs to help disabled people in their day-to-day life, and the money will help transform the lives of at least five people.
Dogs for the Disabled fundraising director, Steve Billington, said: “This year’s donation has been one of the biggest any company has made.
“That is enough to fund at least five assistance dogs for a disabled person for their lifetime.”
Pets At Home regional director, Colin Archibald, said: “We’re trying to give something back to this charity, which is so important. Staff have done an amazing job managing to raise this money.”
