After raising more than £180,000 last year, Pets at Home is continuing its partnership with The Royal British Legion.

100% of the profits from the sale of poppy-themed merchandise instore goes to the military charity.

During this year’s Poppy Appeal, there may be no large gatherings to pay respect to the fallen. However, many people will still be showing their support for the Armed Forces community by wearing poppies as a symbol of hope and Remembrance.

The pet store’s customers helped raise £180k last year for The Royal British Legion. So Pets at Home is continuing its partnership with the charity for a third year. The store has launched a limited-edition collection of poppy accessories for pets.

Every poppy counts… more than ever

Peter Pritchard is CEO of Pets at Home. He said, “We’re delighted to be partnering with The Royal British Legion once again, to help raise money and awareness for such a worthy cause.
