Pet Food Donations - Monthly

PetPeople donated thousands of pounds each year to local pet rescues and shelters. Each store has designated rescues that it works with for food donations.

Holiday Pictures - November/December

Pictures of the whole family including the four-legged ones. Every November and December we work to bring you a photographer to do amazing holiday pictures in the stores. A portion of proceeds benefit rescues. Photographers vary by market. Please see our event calendar.
