Maxi Zoo is Making Christmas Special for all Animals..

Ireland’s largest pet retailer, Maxi Zoo will make Christmas extra special not only for pampered pets, but also less fortunate animals over the festive season. You are invited to pop into your local Maxi Zoo store in Waterford throughout December and support their Shelter Wishes charity campaign, which will help animals less fortunate than your own this Christmas. 


Each store has selected their own Shelter Wishes animal charity partner, who will compile a wish list of products available in store which their beneficiaries need and want. These gifts, of varying value, can be purchased in store, donated and placed under the Shelter Wishes Christmas Tree. 


The charities benefitting from Maxi Zoo’s Shelter Wishes campaign this December are Cat Haven, DAWG, Limerick Animal Welfare, Dogs Aid, Fairyglen Animal Sanctuary, KWSPCA, Animal Trust Fund, WSPCA, Dogs Trust, ASH Animal Rescue, Deise, Cara Dog Rescue, Mo Chara, DSPCA, Hedgehog Rescue Dublin, Hug, Little Hill, Husky Rescue Ireland, NWSPCA – North Wexford, and Friends of Animals Mullingar.​


Each charity involved will collect the donated gifts from Maxi Zoo stores on Christmas Eve, ensuring that needy animals are not forgotten this Christmas. Anthony Cremin, Marketing Manager at Maxi Zoo said “At Maxi Zoo we love animals, and we believe all animals deserve the very best. The thought of animals suffering is at the forefront of our minds, especially at Christmas, and this is why Shelter Wishes was created – to make life a little brighter for less fortunate animals at this time of year.”


For those pets lucky enough to have a loving home year-round, Maxi Zoo will host a very special FREE Christmas event in stores on Saturday, December 14th. The big man himself, “Santa Paws” will be in store from 12 to 4pm, and pet owners are encouraged to bring their fur babies along and take their own special Christmas photo with the man in red.  


Anthony added “On December 14th, we’re inviting our customers to come along with their pets and take a fun photo with Santa Paws. The day will also be a great opportunity to support our Shelter Wishes campaign, and also pick up those all important Christmas presents for the pets in your life – from festive jumpers to tasty advent calendars.”
