AN ANIMAL charity in Sheffield has received a £10,000 donation from staff at a city store as part of a national drive to give unwanted pets a second chance.

The donation to Rain Rescue was made by workers at the Pets at Home shop at the Drakehouse Retail Park near Crystal Peaks.

The store chain set up and supports a charity called Support Adoption For Pets, which has raised more than £1.3 million nationally over the last 12 months.

Rain Rescue trustee Jacquie Neilsen collected the gift and brought along several four-legged friends to show their gratitude.

Staff heard the cash will be used to help with the rescue charity’s kennel block refurbishment.

Support Adoption for Pets gives financial support to animal welfare charities and re-homing centres across the UK, such as Rain Rescue.

There are also dedicated adoption centres in more than 280 of Pets at Home’s 300 stores across the UK. The centres are home to a range of different pets, such as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters, all looking for a second chance of happiness, often due to a change in their owner’s circumstances.
