Multi-service pet care franchise Petpals is highlighting the importance its franchisees put on supporting their communities by raising money and awareness through various initiatives.
Most recently, Maxine Neal at Petpals Cardiff, Robbie Brown at Petpals Christchurch and Franchise Support Manager Tracey Dawber have raised funds for causes their communities care about most, including Cancer Research, Dog’s Trust, Blue Cross, and FurBuddies among others.
Neal said: “I recently raised money for Cancer Research, a cause close to Petpals Cardiff’s heart, as one of our clients is currently undergoing treatment. I’ve also supported animal charities such as Blue Cross and Dog’s Trust.
“As a franchisee, I take pride in not only running a successful business but also in supporting charitable initiatives that benefit those around us.”
Brown added: “As a Petpals business owner, I see first-hand the impact that my business has on the local community. That’s why it’s important for me to not only provide excellent service to our customers but also give back through other means.
“I recently donated to FurBuddies Animal Rehoming Centre, a fantastic charity that works to rehome dogs in my local area.”
Members of the company’s head office are also joining in to raise money and awareness for causes close to their hearts.
Kevin Thackrah, Director of Petpals, said: “At Petpals, we recruit our franchisees because they exhibit a real passion for helping their community. Owning a franchise comes with a certain amount of responsibility to the community you serve, whether that’s on your own doorstep or a particular cross-section of an industry or sector.”
