Vet charity opens new shop in Newport

PDSA, the UK’s leading vet charity for pets in need, has just opened the doors of its brand-new shop in Newport on 21 March.  
Bargain-loving customers in the area will now be able to browse and pick-up an array of pre-loved and new items from the store! PDSA charity shops are stocked with fabulous finds from vintage clothes to brand new animal-themed accessories.   
They are also a great community hub, where locals can browse and chat to the friendly faces in store, all whilst raising money for an essential cause with every penny spent.  
The charity shop will support PDSA’s vital veterinary work across its 49 Pet Hospitals across the UK, which care for hundreds of thousands of pets whose owners would otherwise struggle to afford essential vet treatments.  
Jennie Pearson, Volunteering Business Partner at PDSA said: “Our charity shops play a huge role in helping to fund the veterinary care in our Pet Hospitals, and the local community is truly at the centre of it! We’re so grateful to everyone who dedicates a little or a lot of time to helping out in our shops, as well as everyone who donates goods, or shops with us.  
“The new store in Newport will provide the lovely locals with the opportunity to purchase high-quality, cut-price products while supporting a vital charity service. We’re hopeful the new shop will be wonderfully welcomed by the local community and will become a staple spot for locals to enjoy.   
“We are extremely grateful to all of the people who support PDSA because they believe in what we do. It’s the generous support from donating unwanted items, making a purchase, or volunteering in our charity shops, that goes back into helping keep people and pets together in their times of need through our Pet Hospitals.”  
The new shop is located at: PDSA Newport Shop, 53 Commercial Street, Newport NP20 1LP. Any goods donations can be made inside the shop.
