Waterlooville dog care company collects donations for animal rescue centers in need of support

Hundreds of donations poured into Waterlooville Pooch & Co’s Pledges for Paws campaign, aimed at helping charities for animals in need.

Gabby Head, owner of Pooch & Co, was inspired to do something after team member Sam Tame introduced himself to explain how the RSPCA center she also works in was affected by the lockdown restrictions.

Gabby, 27, said: “Due to the foreclosure they were having a really hard time getting donations. We have an amazing network of clients so I thought I would bring our little dog community together to help out with local charities.

It was so successful that Gabby also extended it to include care packages for people who might have trouble feeding their pets during this time.

Dog owner Gabby, who started Pooch & Co in 2016, said: “We are so lucky all of our customers were more than happy to help.

“If people have donations, we are more than happy to take them. This keeps us busy during the lockdown and it’s good to help the local community too.

When starting the business, Gabby was looking for a service to help her with her chihuahua Prince Pablo and her toy poodle Minnie.

Gabby said, “I have dogs myself and have always had a hard time finding a business that offered everything for dogs as a one stop shop.

“My business has just grown and grown. We are fortunate to be very busy and have the best job in the world working with dogs all day.

Pooch & Co offers dog walking, grooming, boarding and daycare services for pet owners.

Donations are always welcome for the Pledges for Paws campaign, and items needed include pet food, toys, beds, and blankets for the team to distribute to charities in need.
