The Maxi Zoo pet store chain is providing 2,000 unwanted dogs with a free coat to help them stay warm this winter. The coats worth Û160,000 have been distributed to dog charities throughout Ireland.
Josh, a four month old Dalmation was the first to be kitted out by Maxi Zoo pet expert Lisa Kemp yesterday at the Dogs Trust in Finglas.
A big-hearted Cork couple Tony and Alice Cross, who are behind the successful Maxi Zoo pet store chain, are playing real life Santa and kitting out over 2,000 dogs in the care of fifteen charities throughout Ireland with a free coat to help them stay warm this winter.
Tony and Alice have a policy of ensuring that each Maxi Zoo store supports a local dog charity but their decision to make such a generous donation is the biggest charity project that they have ever undertaken.
