Derek Knox, Project Manager, Animal Rescue Cooperative

When the fires first hit, ARC reached out to Petbarn to help our rescuers in bushfire zones.

Straight away Petbarn donated 50 tonnes of food and supplies. It was a massive undertaking but within days we were able to get food into the mouths of animals.

And then COVID started… we had people fleeing from domestic violence, experiencing homelessness and literally thousands of Australians who were struggling financially and unable to care for their pets. Again and again Petbarn continued their generosity to helping us deliver positive outcomes to people and pets in need. We are incredibly grateful to Petbarn, their team and customers for all the help they have given the rescue community and the animals of Australia.
