This June animal rescues are asking to you to ‘Petorate’ your garden, front window or car with cuddly toys, animal scarecrows, pet pictures or even your animal ornaments to show your support to the many animal charities battling through the Covid-19 pandemic we all face.

With many of us at home we all need to bring some fun to our community and brighten each others day. Decorating your home, garden or car with toy animals, pictures or ornaments is a fantastic way to show your support to animals in need and bring a smile to passers by.
