Staff are preparing to hold a breakfast event to raise money for charity.

As part of the Big Dogs Breakfast, Pets at Home in Cramlington will open an hour early on Sunday, November 1, to help raise money for Dogs for Good.

The store team is inviting residents to enjoy a hot beverage and some breakfast treats, with or without their dog, in return for a donation.

Colleagues will also be holding a free Advanced Nutrition workshop, where staff will be offering advice to customers on pet nutrition and health.

Owners will be able to ask any questions they may have about their four legged friend’s nutrition needs with the store’s trained pet advisors.

All funds raised on the day will be donated to Dogs for Good, the new name for Dogs for the Disabled.

Dogs for Good provides three services: Assistance Dog – training assistance dogs to support adults and children with physical disabilities and children with autism; Family Dog – providing specialist advice and support to help people get the most out of their relationship with their pet dog and Community Dog: training activity and therapy dogs and their specialist handlers to work in communities and schools.

Pets at Home store manager, Colin Dale, said: “We’re really excited about this event as it’s a great opportunity to meet people from across the community or catch-up with familiar faces over breakfast.

“Whether you’re a dog owner or not, we’d love you to come down to help us raise money and change people’s lives by supporting Dogs for Good.”

Dogs for Good’s director of marketing, Steve Billington, said: “Pets at Home have been a long and valued partner for the charity; their support helped us to build our training and kennel block facilities.

“We’re thrilled that all Pets at Home stores nationwide are holding a Big Dogs Breakfast to raise much-needed funds for us.

“This is invaluable support. We receive no government funding and reply entirely on donations.”
