Charitable Foundation Updates

For the Week of April 21, 2024

Additional Pet Food Donations

In addition to the To the Rescue Pet Food program that was both wildly popular on social media, and able to assist hundreds of animal welfare organizations in need, our Charitable Foundation made additional pet food donations to the Blackstone Animal Shelter in Blackstone, MA; Woonsocket Animal Control in Woonsocket, RI; and Animal Rescue League of Southern Rhode Island in Peacedale, RI. Each rescue received 1-2 pallets of premium pet food to support homeless animals waiting for their forever homes.

To the Rescue Pet Food Program

Recently, we shared a new pet food program to assist animal welfare organizations in every community that we serve, and the impact was incredible. Our Facebook post reached over 620,000 people, was shared 6,000 times and received 3,000 comments from our loyal customers who wanted to spread the word about the fantastic work that our Foundation does to help animals in need. On the morning of Saturday, March 9, animal welfare organizations were at the ready to pick up premium select cat and dog food to further help their rescues, shelters and pantries. Over 8,000 cases of premium cat and dog food were handed out to eager organizations, to the tune of nearly $400,000 in retail value through all of our store locations. Thank you to everyone who made this new program such a success.

Part of their commitment comes in the form of beautification projects – and the six pallets of amaryllis bulbs they will be receiving from our Charitable Foundation will aid them in that goal.
