Love Your wildlife Day Round Up

This Valentines Day we celebrated by holding our Love Your Wildlife Day! We organised the day to help Rajapack reach their fundraising total for Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital.

We had a great range of cakes and treats for people to buy and had organised crafts for people to make. Mai is here modelling the really cool Bat Hat and Paper plate Hedgehogs! We had Hedgehog cupcakes, Welsh cakes and animal marshmallow pops! All very tasty.

 

We were also supported by Spike’s World with prizes for taking part in our Wildlife Quiz!

 Special guests from the Avon Wildlife Trust and the Avon Bat Group visited us to help raise awareness of local wildlife and how to get involved in it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Harold the Brown Long Eared Bat was a huge hit with customers who visited the store. Many customers were pleased to see the nocturnal visitor who was camped out in our Garden room for the day.

We had a great fundraising game – The Penny Cover Up! – Everyone was carefully placing their coins to make the hedgehog picture look fantastic.

 

The Teddy Tombola was popular and everyone got to take a new friend home!

Staff and customers had a great day and managed to raise £20.86 to go towards Rajapack’s Hector Hedgehog Mansion fundraising! Here is Lee who was dressed up as a Scottish Wild Cat!

 

This amount has taken the total to the next level on the fundraising target of £350 which means Hector has now got his West wing extension!

 

We hope that Hector can reach his final total and live happily in his Hedgehog Mansion!

Let us know if you visited on the day and share your experiences! We look forward to hearing from you.

We look forward to welcoming you in store soon; remember we are open in our Bath store 7 days a week!

Not Just Pets Supports Rajapack and Tiggywinkles charity Hedgehog Mansion

Here at Not Just Pets we are excited to support Rajapack who are raising money for Tiggywinkles charity by building a Hedgehog Mansion!

As part of our Wildlife day that we are planning (more information coming!) we will be raising money to donate to the Tiggywinkles animal charity and help Rajapack reach their £1000 target and build a cardboard masterpiece.

Rajapack and animal charity Tiggywinkles, are building the mansion to raise the money needed to provide care to sick and vulnerable hedgehogs this winter—the season of hedgehog hibernation.

Not Just Pets stocks a wide range of accessories and food made especially for hedgehogs. You can find out more about them in store.

Hector (pictured below) — Rajapack’s nominated house hedgehog—will be given a sky dish, swimming pool and private jet, but only if donors reach the charity target of £1000. For each £50 target that is met along the way,

Rajapack will add a new feature to Hector’s mansion. Public donors can see Hector’s house progress and donate on the Rajapack website.

The house is to-scale and is suitable for any hedgehog seeking a life of luxury. The design means that Hector has room to move around freely and to invite his hedgehog friends, should they care for a game of tennis or a chill in the pool. Built from Rajapack’s finest cardboard, the mansion can withstand very mild gusts of wind.

Below are the key features that donations will help to bring to the mansion:

•Sky dish

•Garage

•Garage Extension

•West Wing Extension

•Trees

•Car

•Pool

•Tennis Court

•Plane

Andrew Wood, Ecommerce Marketing Manager at Rajapack, said:

“It’s fantastic that we can raise money for Tiggywinkles and at the same time create a fun project that is engaging for people both young and old.

“Close to Rajapack’s head office, this is a charity that is close to  the company’s heart. It cares for sick and injured animals, such as hedgehogs, badgers, deer, wild birds, foxes and reptiles. When we first found out that they needed packaging supplies and help with fundraising efforts, we jumped to help them. As the hospital receives no national funding, they rely heavily on the generosity of the public to provide the best in care free of charge.

Kind donations will ensure that they continue their important work giving wildlife a second chance!”

Note: Hector the hedgehog was not harmed in the making of Hedgehog Mansion.

Janine Tozer, Owner of Not Just Pets, says “We are delighted to be involved with this fundraising project for the TiggyWinkles charity. TiggyWinkles is a specialist wildlife hospital, dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating all species of British wildlife using all available vetinerary expertise. The hospital treats over 10,000 animal casualties per year and its doors are open 365 days a year – all casualties are treated free of charge.

Not Just Pets looks forward to sharing more information on the Wildlife day we are planning and hope that you can help raise some funds for Tiggywinkles.

Rabbit Awareness Week 2014

 

Rabbit Awareness Week (10th – 18th May) is a nationwide event that aims to make the public aware of the welfare needs of rabbits.

Rabbits make very rewarding pets as they are intelligent, fun and inquisitive. However, they do live up to 10 years plus and are a long term commitment. We want to make sure that your decision to choose a rabbit as your pet is the right one.

Rabbit awareness week is an annual campaign that Not Just Pets supports. We take it as an opportunity to educate local owners and potential owners on how to take care of their pets properly.  We aim to raise awareness of caring for rabbits as well as raising funds and promote local charities.

In order for an animal to thrive and be happy there are five main areas that need to be met. These areas are Diet, Environment, Behaviour, Company and Health.

Whether you are an existing owner or plan to be one there is a wealth of knowledge to be found during Rabbit Awareness Week.

In store we are holding an open day in conjunction with Bath Bunny rescue. There will be a fabulous raffle and cake sale to raise essential funds for the charity. Here is the star cake from the last cake sale!

The date for your diary is Saturday 10th May. We will be holding the Open day at our Bath store 8-9 St James Parade.

Our staff will be on hand to guide you through any rabbit purchases you may need help with and Michelle from Bath Bunny Rescue will be in store to answer your questions and to chat about all things rabbit.

Michelle will also be bringing in some rabbits with her so please come and visit them for a cuddle!

Rabbit themed incentives and promotions will be available so come and get a treat or learn something new during Rabbit Awareness Week!
