Not Just Pets 10 year Anniversary Charity Open Day a Huge Success

We celebrated our 10th anniversary last month here in our Bath city centre store with a big party and a fun game challenge by the Abbey in Kingston Parade. We managed to raise over £250 for local animal charities. Greyhound rescue West of England and Swindon Reptile Rescue.

The theme of the day was fun, fun, fun with animal education thrown in as always and the staff all dressed in glad rags and local and tourist folk were invited to participate in various ways.

A big draw for the weekend was having celebrity dog listener Tony Knight give a very funny and informative talk to customers on the day. He also ran a three day dog behaviour course based at the store, and the feedback from the participants was fabulous. Not only did they learn so much about themselves and their dogs but they had lots of fun too.

Customers enjoyed cakes, coffee, animal handling, advice and more, and went away with a party bag each, various freebies and samples and probably a raffle ticket.

Janine Tozer owner of the store says “We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of the day. We would like to say huge thank you to all the fabulous local businesses and to our suppliers who gave prizes, samples, or who attended on the day to give nutrition and behaviour advice. A very big thank you indeed goes to Tony Knight, celebrity dog listener and Andy from Rolf Hagen for the Nerf challenge. Our team of staff were brilliant on the day and we would like to thank all our lovely customers who came in and took part. They seem to have a lot of fun too. We were delighted to be able to raise some valuable funds for Greyhound Rescue West of England.”

The raffle was a huge success raising a grand total of £132! The prizes were kindly donated by Society Cafe, Eric Snook’s toyshop, MacDonald Bath Spa Hotel , Shakeaway, Roman Bath and The Fashion Museum, Spirit Photography and also many suppliers including Happy Pet, Ancol and Trixie

We were able to treat all the customers who attended the open day to samples and offers due to the generosity of the companies that supplied free samples and products for prizes. A huge thank you to Applaws, Barking heads, Beapher, Burgess, Burns, Canagan, Wofytrade, Company of Animals, Ezydog, Johnsons, Rosewood, Supreme, Tetra, Kong, Pooch and Mutt, Nature’s Way, Green and Wild and Fish4dogs.

We would like to thank you all for the support. It is lovely to be a part of the Bath community.

The retailers are nominated by their suppliers and one said: “This business [Not Just Pets] goes the extra mile to ensure their customers are well informed, and their needs are catered for in all aspects of pet matters.”

The staff members here in Bath and Frome are delighted to receive this recognition for their work.  The award means a lot to them as it shows their hard work and dedication to the customers and animals has paid off.

“I get to work with some fantastic people who only ever have the best interests of both their customers and the animals in mind. Who would not enjoy that.” Dale Taylor.

I have a passion for animals and it makes me proud to be able to say that I work in a company that puts animal welfare first and that is always looking for ways to further enrich the lives of animals both in store and at home with our customers.” Hannah Coombes.

Not Just Pets Fundraising For Red Nose Day 2015!

How much would you like to see the Team at Not Just Pets looking very silly? You can help us raise our fundraising total and make our staff members look very silly at the same time!

This Friday 13th March we will be fundraising for Red Nose Day!

For every red item sold we will donate 20p to the pot as well as having a bake-off where we see which of our three stores can sell the most yummy cakes!

But how does that make the staff look silly? For each target we reach towards our total we will be adding to our red outfits with extra funny items such as –

– Put deely boppers on

– Wear funny glasses

– Put glittery eye shadow on

– Put on red nail varnish

-Put on red lipstick

– Wear a red wig/spray our hair red

– Wear a funny moustache

– Get our faces painted in truly silly style!

So the more we raise the sillier the staff will look! It will be worth popping in to store on the day for that reason alone!

We hope that you will be able to join us on the day but if you are not able to you can still donate at our Just Giving page where all the money goes straight to the Red Nose Day fund
