Whilst our aim for the brand new DVD was to show where the money we have raised and donated has gone and the good it has done, we also felt it was important to recognise those friends that fundraise for us, allowing us to make such generous and much needed donations in the first place, so our second and final day of filming took us to a local Pets at Home store in Manchester.
For those of you out there that don’t know our history, back in 2006 Pets at Home established us, Support Adoption For Pets, and even though we are an independent registered charity in our own right, Pets at Home continue to support us every year! Not only do they fundraise for us and allow us to hold three major fundraising events ever year in their stores but they also look after the pets that we have in our adoption centres in stores too.
For this reason we thought that the best people to talk about the importance of fundraising and our adoption centres, were our Charity Champions – surprisingly they took to life in front of the camera like the proverbial duck to water – and each came with their own stories about pets that they have been able to rehome or rehoming centres that they have been able to support!
We did threaten to keep the bloopers from all the stumbled words or the forgotten lines but we found that because the team was so passionate about the charity and the support that we have given, the presentation to camera was natural and there were no bloopers to talk about – even the pets and children nailed it in one take! And you know what they say about working with that group! As the day drew to a close we felt comfortable that we had managed to get enough content over the past two days to film the promotional film many times over and we are so pleased with our finished product and we hope you do too!
