THE staff members of Cat Box Pet Hyper will be hosting a fundraising event this Saturday, June 3, in aid of various local animal organisations.

Cat Box Pet Hyper is a specialist pet food and accessories retailer located in the Heugh Road Shopping Centre.

As the various organisations involved all fight for a cause that is close to their hearts, the staff members of Cat Box Pet Hyper have decided to go all out for their furry friends.

“Cat Box Pet Hyper is full of people who care about customers, but more so about the pets and animals in its communities. The organisations in Port Elizabeth are the true inspiration that made us want to organise this fundraising event. We just want to be a part of the team of heroes that have been taking care of the homeless animals,” said Jaun-Pierre van Huyssteen of Cat Box Pet Hyper in Port Elizabeth.

Some of the organisations that will benefit from the event are Save-a-Pet, the Animal Welfare Society, Paw Prints, Cat Care and Cat Rescue-PE.

Their aim is to raise enough food to fill all the organisations’ food storage boxes and create awareness on how people can become involved to help them.

Animal lover or not, everyone is welcome to attend the event and donate money or food to the organisation of their choice.

The event will include food stalls, lucky draws and homeless animals that can be adopted.

Cat Box Pet Hyper will also be offering special discounts in store and the various organisations will educate the community about what they do and the difference they make in Port Elizabeth.

The fundraising event will take place at Cat Box Pet Hyper on June 3 at 144 Heugh Road Shopping Centre.
