A long time ago, we made a choice not to sell dogs or cats in our stores.
Instead, we’re advocates for pet adoption, and our stores proudly partner up with rescue groups in New Zealand communities to promote perfectly lovable rescue pets and just how great they are!
Whether it’s by holding in store pet adoption days or various fundraising and awareness activities, we’re devoted to helping give homeless pets a voice and find forever families.
How our PETadopt Program Works
- We make free space, temporary or permanent, available in store for rescue groups to find forever families for adoptable pets. It also gives potential pet parents the chance to meet rescue pets in a positive, convenient and friendly environment.
- In no way does PETstock profit from our PETadopt program; 100% of all adoption fees go straight to the rescue group. These fees cover each pet’s desexing procedure, microchipping, vaccinations and parasite control, as well as a thorough medical and behavioural assessment – all of which happens before each pet is adopted!
- All adoptions are completed by rescue group members who know their animals the best. Rescue groups provide potential adoptees with information they need about adopting a particular pet, as well as provide support to new adoptees to introduce their new pet into their family.
PETadopt not only saves lives but educates the community about adoption, responsible pet ownership and the wonderful work of our rescue group partners!
