The February 6 visit is part of an initiative between Pet Rescue and PETstock stores for National Pet Adoption Day.

PetRescue co-founder Vickie Davy said this sort of educational event showed people that choosing to adopt a pet could be rewarding.

“In most cases, pets end up in rescue through no fault of their own,” she said.

“The most common reasons can be traced back to owners’ life-style changes, health issues and the financial costs of owning a pet, as opposed to behavioural issues.

“The sad reality is rescue pets face a grim future without adoption, so by welcoming a rescue pet into your home you may be saving a life.

“They will thank you every day with unlimited love and affection.

“Adopting also allows people to find a pet most suited to their age, lifestyle and living arrangements.”

Pets are de-sexed, vaccinated and treated for parasites before adoption.
