On Saturday March 13, PETstock Rouse Hill and PetStock Marsden Park will host local animal rescue organisation DCH Animal Adoptions as part of PETstock Assist’s annual National Pet Adoption Day initiative.
Over the past six years, PETstock Assist ‘s National Pet Adoption Day campaign has rehomed more than 12,000 pets over 6 days. This year’s initiative will now span the entire month of March in a bid to find even more pets homes, educate the masses and celebrate the entire rescue community.
Australian sporting superstars and animal welfare advocates, Sharni Layton and Peter Siddle, are supporting the month-long initiative to educate Australians on the benefits of pet adoption.
They are no strangers to rescuing animals, each being proud adoptive pet parents to three cats and five dogs collectively – all who have changed their lives for the better.
“Having the opportunity to give our five rescue dogs, quirks and all, a second chance at a loving home has been such a rewarding experience,” says Peter. “We were fortunate enough to meet our perfect match on five separate occasions. I encourage all would-be pet owners looking for a pet to consider adoption and keep an open mind.”
For Sharni, it’s knowing that she always has the unwavering support from her rescue cats.
“The companionship and support that they’ve provided in return, especially throughout 2020 and now during the AFLW season, has made such a positive difference to my life off the field.”
