Over 3,000 dog coats donated to Australian rescue groups

More than 3,000 rescue tails wagging thanks to coat donations

PETstock’s charity organisation, PETstock Assist, has partnered with Doggone Gorgeous, Ruff N Rugged and PetRescue to help facilitate the delivery of more than 3,000 dog coats to 50 charity organisations across Australia.

The donation was made in conjunction with #nonudepets campaign, a national initiative that ensures animals currently in foster care waiting for their ‘new home’ are warm, dry and cosy.

PETstock Assist’s Charity and Events Coordinator, Jessica Curtis, says not-for-profit rescue organisations and animal shelters rely and operate largely on financial donations and support from local communities.

“High demand items such as dog apparel, food, bedding, treats and toys help free up cash for other vital areas of the shelter’s operation.

“Thanks to PETstock Assist and its partners, donations like these not only provide rescue animals with much needed comfort, warmth and of course style, but also supports organisations and their network of volunteers and foster carers who are helping to care for and create better futures for rescue animals in need.”

Greyt Greys Rescue, Happy Paws Animal Rescue, Great Dane Rescue and Rehoming, A Mini Rescue Animal Shelter, Greyhound Rescue, Working Paws Dog Rescue, Best Friends Animal Community and Phoenix Animal Rescue Horsham are among the 50 organisations to receive the coat donations. 

"Our hounds really need to be kept warm when the temperatures drop overnight and all throughout winter. To have such quality coats donated is a real help!" said Nat Panzarino, President of Greyhound Rescue.
