Fundraising Initiatives

The Pet Foundation raise money through a number of initiatives throughout the year.

Seeing Eye Dog Fundraising Appeal

At any one time over 2,000 Australians are estimated to require support from a Seeing Eye Dog. To help reduce this figure, the Petbarn Foundation and Seeing Eye Dogs Australia (SEDA) are urge Aussies to get behind The Pet Foundation annual fundraising appeal to assist Australians who are blind or have low vision.

"It takes a lot of time, love, patience and money to raise these special working dogs that will one day become the gift of independence for people who are blind or have low vision," said Leigh Garwood, General Manager from Seeing Eye Dogs Australia.

"Last year’s successful fundraising campaign through the Petbarn Foundation has enabled us to train six dogs who are all doing well. We're once again calling on everyone's generosity to support this year's appeal," added Garwood.

Pet Dating

The Pet Foundation encourages Australians to open their hearts to a pet in need. More than 140 Petbarn stores nationally hold the annual "Pet Dating Event" whereby prospective pet parents are able to meet a number of loveable pets in need of a new home.

The aim of the event is to find forever homes for a number of pets that have previously been displaced. Importantly, The Pet Foundation aims to find long-term solutions for pets and pet parents, with the local Petbarn store partnering with animal shelters across Australia.

Having a pet as part of your family is a wonderful experience and The Pet Foundation are happy to play a role in not only helping pets in need find new homes but in enriching the lives of Australians as they welcome a new member of the family through adoption into their homes.

The Giving Tree

The Pet Foundation raise funds for animal charities through the Giving Tree to help assist animals their care over the busy Christmas period and year ahead. Petbarn customers have the opportunity to purchase $3, $5 or $10 to hang the decorations on the Petbarn Giving Tree. All donations collected on behalf of The Pet Foundation are distributed to the nominated animal rescue group that often rely on the generosity of the community to help fund the cost involved in rehabilitating pets and preparing them for a second chance at a happy and healthy life.
