When it comes to cats and dogs, we subscribe to the Apopt, don’t shop policy. In South Africa and the world over, there are far too many rescued kitties and doggos who are in need of their new loving forever homes, as well as a plethora of passionate animal welfares and shelters that need help in their efforts to rehome these pets. According to our partner shelters, animals are re-homed quicker through the Petworld Adoption days than they are at the shelters; we are proud to be able to play a part in these happy endings.
We host Adoption Days at our XXL branches over weekends to promote adoptions, fostering, funds, donations, and even volunteering. Together with our shelter partners, we have developed a process that ensures the highest level of care for the animals within Petworld to make sure that they will go to loving homes:
To learn more about when Petworld Adoption Days take place, please enquire at your local store, or check our social media pages.
If you are from an animal welfare organisation and would like to partner up with us, please get in touch via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Our shelter partners set an adoption fee which is payable by anyone who adopts a pet from their organisation. The adoption fee is collected by the shelter, for the shelter – 100% of the fee goes directly to the shelter (Petworld does not benefit financially from Adoption Days in any way).
The fee of adopting a pet will vary depending on the specific welfare. All adoption animals undergo a comprehensive vet check and been sterilised. In all cases dogs and cats are microchipped, treated for internal and external parasites (e.g. worms and fleas), and receive their initial vaccination (dogs are also treated for heartworm).
PETWORLD H2O Test helps customers keep their aquarium in tip-top condition by having a sample of their tank water tested in store. An PETWORLD Aquarium Specialist will test the water's PH, Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia and Hardness levels before providing recommendations.
At PETWORLD we make it easier for our supporters to donate vital items such as pet food, blankets, dog beds to TEARS without having to travel all the way to their premises. If you have any donations for TEARS, please find the donation box next to the checkout counter at your nearest PETWORLD store.
