'Petorate to Celebrate' - fun for all animal lovers

2nd June 2020


In partnership with the ADCH (Association of Dogs and Cats Homes), this June, animal rescues are asking to you to ‘Petorate’ your garden, front window or car with cuddly toys, pet pictures or even your animal ornaments to show their support to animal charities, and to promote animal charity appeals. 

During these difficult times, we like the idea of bringing some fun to our community to help brighten each others’ day, and keep spreading those smiles. Decorating your home, garden or car with toy animals, pictures or ornaments is a great way to show your support to animals in need, and bring a smile to the faces of passers-by.

While you #PetorateToCelebrate you can support these amazing organisations, working tirelessly and with very limited funds, to help animals in your community.  You can really help make a huge difference  by donating to Oak Tree Animals' Charity or via the ADCH Emergency Fund DONATE page .  Please continue to visit our website and Facebook page for updates on our work, heartwarming stories and ideas about how to support us.  

When you have your Petorate To Celebrate display, please upload your pictures using the hashtag #PetorateToCelebrate. You can either then post them on our Facebook page underneath the Petorate To Celebrate post, or email them to info@oaktreeanimals.org.uk with the subject line #PetorateToCelebrate. At the beginning of July, we will select our winner.  All organisations participating in #PetorateToCelebrate will then send their winning entries to the ADCH at the beginning of July, when an overall winner will be chosen!

The ADCH is a charity (Reg No.1180574) with a membership of 150 charities from across the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. The ADCH promotes best practice in animal welfare for dogs and cats and acts as a platform for identifying and disseminating information on best practice and for raising the standards of animal welfare.

Steve Byrne, ADCH Trustee said “With animal charity staff and volunteers working tirelessly to care for tens of thousands of animals, this is a really fun way to let them know they matter and how much you care for the animals in rescue.  The ADCH launched the ADCH Coronavirus Emergency Fund to help those charities in most need and while we welcome all donations to this urgent appeal, equally please do support your chosen animal charity.  We’re exciting and looking forward to seeing the many wonderful #PetorateToCelebrate displays from across the entire UK, Ireland and British Isles and much look forward to selecting the Overall Winner.  Let displays commence!”

We very much look forward to receiving your entries and seeing how creative you can be!
