Thinking of getting a dog? Petmania, Ireland’s leading pet retailer opened its doors at Wellpark Retail Park in Galway a few weeks ago, and this Saturday will team up with MADRA, to seek homes for Galway’s unwanted dogs.
For those considering getting a dog, Petmania encourage them to pay a visit to their in-store Adoption Centre. The Petmania Adoption Centre works with nominated rescue centres to provide practical, commercial and financial support, while offering those thinking about animal adoption a convenient, central location to meet with prospective adoptive pets and the rescue centre.
In Galway, Petmania have teamed up with MADRA –Mutts Anonymous Dog Rescue and Adoption. Based in Connemara, this volunteer run charity dedicated to finding new homes for unwanted, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs. MADRA representatives will be available to meet prospective adoptive families, at Petmania, every second Saturday, while information on dogs needing new homes is available every day at the shop.
Marketing manager for Petmania, Emily Miller, says that “pet adoption is something which is very close to our hearts at Petmania, and through our Adoption Centre we are delighted to be able to bring rescue centres and adoptive families together to help facilitate successful re-homing of unwanted pets. We are delighted to be working with MADRA here in Galway, and are looking forward to helping them find loving homes for lots of dogs over the coming weeks, months and years”.
This Saturday from 10am to 4pm, those thinking about getting a dog are invited to come and meet MADRA representatives, and some of the dogs that they are looking for homes for, at Petmania’s store in Wellpark Retail Park.
As a special festive fundraiser for MADRA, Santa will be visiting Petmania in Galway this Saturday [11am – 3pm] and Galway’s pet owners are invited to bring their pets along to meet Santa and have their photograph taken with him. All money raised will go directly to support MADRA.
