Christmas is a wonderful time for lots of people; however it is a time when the rescue centre gets very busy. Rescue centres tend to see a large increase in unwanted and abandoned pets in the New Year. So to prepare, we like to do lots of fundraising to make sure we can offer as much support to those pets that end up needing our help.
As well as Michelle Hennon’s Dance Your Pants Off/Prosecco Afternoon Tea event on Saturday 9th December, we have another event planned, but we need your help!
We have partnered with Pets at Home Harrogate for their Santa Paws Fundraiser. Last year’s event raised a whopping £2,500 for Moorview Rescue, and this year the target is to hit £3,000!
All we need to qualify for this amazing fund is to give 2 days of volunteer support in the month of December.
Pets at Home staff will be holding a doggy tombola and ‘Give a Dog a Christmas Dinner on the till where they donate £1. We’d also like to do some Christmas baking and mince pies to sell. We’re looking for 3-4 people on the Saturday and 2-3 people on the Sunday to help us out!
You’ll be representing the rescue, answering any questions, and encouraging people to donate! You’ll be prepped before with up to date information about the dogs we have in, and be provided with leaflets if anyone want more information.
We’ll be looking for people to spend some time in the store from 11am-4pm on each day, but any time you can donate would be great – even just an hour!
Please get in touch if you can help! December is a hard time to get volunteers so we really need as much help as we can to make sure we qualify for this amazing donation from Pets at Home in association for Support Adoption For Pets.
