Calling all pet lovers. Whether you love cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs or maybe something else, there are thousands of animals dumped at animal shelters all over Australia every year and they need our help.
Hill’s™ Pet Nutrition is encouraging all Australians to volunteer, donate and/or adopt a pet into their family home with its annual Food, Shelter & Love fundraising drive, aiming to raise $25,000 for animal shelters to help find forever homes for more than 50,000 adoptable cats and dogs across Australia.
If you are one of those fur-parents who loves to share pictures of their furbabies at any opportunity (like I have with my dogs and cats, above; Max the shihpoo, Mister Meowgi, Roxie the glab and Kitty) you can help shelter animals simply by sharing a picture of your pet/ fur child.
Reinforcing Hill’s commitment to loving and caring for Australia’s furry felines and playful pups, from Monday 17 August to Friday 16 October 2015, animal lovers are invited to upload a photo of their family pet to Hills Pet Nutrition Facebook Page.
For each photo uploaded, Hill’s will donate $10 to its partner charities, up to a maximum of $25,000 nationwide. The pet pic with the highest votes will earn the proud pet parent a $1,500 VISA prepaid card.
Hill’s Pet Nutrition General Manager, John Douglas, said: “Hundreds of cats and dogs are abandoned in Australia each year and Hill’s Pet Nutrition is committed to finding new, safe, secure and loving homes for these pets. Our annual Food, Love & Shelter campaign enables us to partner with local Australian charities to raise awareness and much-needed funds to support animal shelters across Australia.”
“I remember clearly the day when myself and my family collected our little rescue dog Koby from the shelter. He continues to bring joy and happiness into our home every day so Food, Shelter & Love is very close to my heart. We’re looking forward to seeing all the photos of everyone’s favourite furry friend and seeing the positive impact $25,000 will make.”
Food Shelter & Love charity partners for 2015 include:
RSPCA, Lort Smith Animal, Hospital Cat Haven, Cat Protection Society of NSW Inc., Sydney Dogs & Cats Home and The Hobart Cat Centre.
Hill’s has been supporting local animal charities and transforming lives across Australia since 1997, providing Hill’s pet foods to abandoned animals awaiting adoption in shelters nationally.
