The “Breeds in Need” is an in-store fundraiser that each individual Petco Store holds. Through this annual fall fundraiser, the Petco Foundation honors the many pure-breed rescue groups that tirelessly pull purebred dogs from shelters to re-home them. Every year 1 in every 4 dogs left at a shelter is a purebred. GSRNE is no stranger to this popular fundraiser. We have been the recipient for this generous drive for the past 2 years at the Amherst Petco in NH, and for the past 4 years at the Quincy Petco in MA. We are happy to announce through the dedicated work of one of our hard working volunteers, we are now the recipient of a 3rd Petco Store in Hanover, MA!! Please visit one of these three Petco stores through September 8, 2013 to help support the dogs in our care!
This year, Petco of Hanover, MA has chosen GSRNE to be the recipient for money raised during the “Breeds in Need” fundraiser. This event runs from 08/24/13 through 09/08/13. One of our volunteers has made beautiful posters that will inform Petco shoppers about our rescue organization and some of the dogs we’ve helped. At checkout, customers will be asked if they’d like to make a donation to help with GSRNE rescue work. We are so excited the Petco’s of Quincy, MA, Hanover, MA and Amherst, NH have chosen us for this event again!
