FENLAND: Pooches looking for new homes visit pet shop to plead with customers

DOGS of all shapes and sizes visited a Fenland pet shop on Saturday, pleading with customers to give them a new home. After a number of dogs were rehomed successfully last year, Mary Higgins of VENGA Rescue returned to The Pet Shop in Station Road, March,

A CAMPAIGN to find dogs a new home proved so popular with customers that the event will be repeated tomorrow.

Saturday’s rehoming event at The Pet Shop in March, alongside VENGA Rescue, saw three dogs rehomed but a number of enquiries about rehoming a dog afterwards.

Rob Phipps, of The Pet Shop, said: “We had such good feedback and a few customers said they missed it, so some more dogs will be here tomorrow.”

Last year, the scheme between The Pet Shop and VENGA Rescue, run by Mary Higgins, found homes for a number of dogs.

Potential owners visited the Station Road shop on Saturday, as well as a lot of people who rehomed dogs last year.

Mr Phipps said: “People were also buying them treats, and donations were made for VENGA to buy bags of dog food.
