Christmas is a wonderful time of the year and while we love spoiling our own pets however there are plenty of pets in shelters who are far less fortunate.
Every year during the month of December, Best Friends aim to raise much needed funds for local shelters. We have a Christmas gift tree set up in every store with all donations going to their local nominated shelter.
All shelters are so grateful for any type of donation including cash, food, product or Pet e-cash gift cards. Let’s dig deep and help a best friend in need this Christmas.
