Petbarn Noosa to help raise $100k for pet shelters

Co Founder of Savourlife Michael McTeige.

 Petbarn Noosa is encouraging pet parents to help raise much-needed funds for their chosen local charity, Safe Haven Animal Rescue and Lucky Paws Dog Rescue, by purchasing SavourLife pet food in store this month.

Petbarn stores across the country are combining fundraising efforts to reach a combined total of $100,000.

Throughout March, which has been coined “Rescue Month”, Petbarn Noosa and the Noosa region will be set fundraising targets to raise funds for 17 rescue groups across the country.

Petbarn Foundation Chairman Scott Charters said they want to encourage people to help save and re-home abandoned dogs through the purchase of SavourLife in store.

“March is an important month for us, as the Petbarn Foundation continues to encourage adoptions and raise money for rescue groups, after the huge support shown for the Clear the Shelters campaign with the RSPCA last month,” Mr Charters said.

“By purchasing a bag of SavourLife in store, pet parents are not only buying Aussie-made food and treats for their pooch, they are also supporting a great cause and helping to save animals who aren’t lucky enough to have found their forever home yet,” continued Mr Charters.

Founder of SavourLife, Michael McTeigue, said the challenge is to encourage people to buy products in store, while simultaneously helping a great cause.

“For every bag of SavourLife food purchased at a Petbarn (or City Farmers) store during March we will make a donation directly to that store’s local rescue group. Helping dogs in need, directly in your local area.” Mr McTeigue said.

Petbarn Noosa Store Manager, Peter Auld, is encouraging Noosa residents to show their support by heading down to their local Petbarn and purchasing SavourLife pet food. “Every dollar goes a long way and we want Petbarn Noosa and Noosa locals to show how much we care about animals in need.

“Come down and buy some family-owned, Aussie-made food which is being donated to Safe Haven Animal Rescue and Lucky Paws Dog Rescue and ultimately helping abandoned animals find their new forever home. We’ll be showing our support at Petbarn Noosa and we hope to see as many Noosa locals showing their support too.”

More than 200 stores throughout the country are participating in the campaign that will run for the month of March throughout New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania.
