We care about the welfare of pets
At any given moment, there are thousands of lovable pets in animal shelters waiting for a new home. Animates believe all pets deserve the chance to have a happy and healthy life with a loving family. We are committed to responsible pet ownership and animal welfare. Animates actively support pet adoptions through stores and through fund raising events that support the efforts of our main partner the SPCA, as well as other partners, Taupo Pound, Waitakere Shelter, Hope Rescue and Kitty Korner.
Since 2010, over 10,000 animals have been adopted to Animates customers and more than $300,000 has been raised for the SPCA through Animates stores. Nikki Marchant-Ludlow, Services & Welfare Manager says Animates is committed to helping the SPCA pets that would otherwise face uncertain futures. "Our commitment is to the wellbeing of pets and to supporting those who have pet wellbeing at heart" Marchant-Ludlow says. "All domestic kittens through our stores are SPCA kittens and stores have SPCA puppies for adoption when available. We will also continue to meet the needs of all pet lovers and thus we will continue to offer pets both from the SPCA and from approved breeders."
A prospective pet parent will be taken through a one-on-one adoption process in store with one of our trained team members to assess suitability of the adoption, this relates to all adoptions of puppies, kittens, cats, rabbits, birds, chickens, rats, mice, reptiles and chinchillas.
