We're delighted to be working with Build-A-Bear Workshop to help educate the future generations of pet owners.

Between March and May Build-A-Bear were generously encouraging guests to make a donation in store or online at to the Build-A-Bear Foundation to benefit children's pet education programs. This program is in honour of the first birthday of Promise Pets, their line of realistic plush pets.

The Build-A-Bear Foundation have donated over £35,000 to us which is earmarked to support our volunteer speaker scheme. Education is a vital part of our work and the volunteer speaker scheme aims to influence the next generation of animal owners, helping them to become responsible and caring citizens.

In addition, Build-A Bear Workshop have provided us with sets of their Promise Pets cats and dogs for all 15 of our volunteers to use for demonstrations when they go out to schools. Each one will come with a variety of accessories, such as food bowls, brushes and leads, to help show that there's more to owning a pet and promote responsible ownership.
