Generous animal lovers in Sheffield have raised more than £1,800 for pet rehoming centres as part of a bumper fundraising drive.

Organised by grant giving animal charity, Support Adoption For Pets, customers at Pets at Home’s stores at Heeley and Wadsley Bridge in Sheffield raised £1,812 over a four-week campaign, which will go to Helping Hands Dog Rescue and Wizz Catz Rescue.

To raise funds, the stores held a raffle with high value prizes and sold the charity’s first single – a cover version of The Wannadies’ 1996 hit single You and Me Song.

Staff also invited customers to participate in the store’s ‘Round up to a £1’ initiative, whereby they opted to round up the cost of their purchases to the nearest pound, with the difference being donated to the appeal.
