How exciting to know that for every bag of food that we purchase at PetSmart will help hungry pets. From March 1st, 2017 through December 31st, 2017 every bag of food purchased in store or online, PetSmart will be donating a meal to pets in need. Their more than 1,500 stores are located across the US, Canada and in Puerto Rico. This is a ton of food going to hungry animals, PetSmart expects this donation to provide more than 60 million meals.
What a way for PetSmart to celebrate turning 30 years old than to initiate this philanthropic endeavor. This is the kindest way for any company to show their love for pets and their true belief that pets “make us better people”. Which is completely what our family believes, we couldn’t imagine life without the unconditional love of our furry family members.
PetSmart Charities® has joined with PetSmart to help save more than 7.3 million pets lives over the past 30 years. They are the leading donor for animal welfare in the North America giving over $300 million in support. The Buy a Bag, Give a Meal™ program will help to close up the gap in this urgent area of need for pets.
There are 1,800 Animal Welfare partners throughout the North America. Yet, only 20% have received food donations for pets and 8% receive subsidized pet food from pet food brands. This is not enough, these pet shelters need more food for these pets. The Buy a Bag, Give a Meal™ program will help to bridge this gap so these wonderful animals can have this much needed food.
We shop for all of our pet food and supplies at PetSmart so them donating a meal to feed other pets when we buy a bag of pet food just makes shopping there even better!!!!! Buy your pet’s food at PetSmart (online or in store) and you can be a part of this amazing program and know that your purchases are going to helping pet’s in need.
Did you know this many pets are in need of food? How do you want to help all of these sweet fur babies?
