Time Pet & Rogz - Save the Rhino Campaign

Help Save the Rhino on World Rhino Day - 22 September

With all five species of the rhino under threat, Time Pet and Rogz will support Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors through their “Save the Rhino” campaign and raise much needed funds for the Warriors’ animal conservation programs.

To help raise awareness and fight for the preservation of the Rhino, Time Pet will donate 50 cents from every sale of Rogz’s bestselling dog toys to Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.

Time Pet Director, Heinrich Westenraad, said: “As an Australian with deep roots in Africa, I want Time Pet to play its part in animal conservation.

“While Rogz, who are based in Cape Town, have been supporting rhino preservation activities in South Africa for many years, this is the first time we’re doing something in Australia. If we can’t save majestic animals such as the rhino, how can we care for our pets?

“I cannot think of a better cause or charity to launch our inaugural fundraising campaign. It’ll be the first of many!”

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors support conservation projects at home and abroad, including a Black Rhino project in East Africa. The 90,000-acre Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya started with 20 black rhinos and has now grown to 120 with the Warriors’ ongoing support.

Time Pet’s “Save the Rhino” campaign runs between now and the 20th of December 2019. Rogz toys can be found all over Australia, in all participating pet specialty stores.

World Rhino Day is on Sunday 22 September.
