Champion Petfoods Donates Over 3.7 Million Meals To Help Animals In Need
Earlier this year, the company also entered into an exclusive 3-year sponsorship with Best Friends Animal Society®, an organization that works with a network of more than 3,300 animal welfare partners, shelters and community members in the United States. Champion Petfoods has signed an agreement with Best Friends Animal Society as part of its Forever project to support pet parents and coordinated the effort with the launch of ACANA Rescue Care for Adopted Dogs, the first dog food in the United States formulated specifically for the unique needs of rescue dogs and their transition from refuge environments to their permanent homes.
In addition to donating meals and throwing food only for rescue dogs, Champion made monetary donations to the Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) of Alberta, Canada and the Logan County Humane Society (LCHS) of Kentucky. Support for LCHS went to support its 22Vets initiative which provides veterans with rescue dogs to help them cope with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.
“We are incredibly lucky to have a locally based business in our community that gives back to animals in need as generously as Champion Petfoods does,” said Liza sunley, CEO of EHS. “Thanks to supporting donations from Champion, we were able to feed many homeless animals in the Edmonton high-quality, nutritious meals so they can thrive while awaiting adoption, including cats and dogs in our shelter’s care and those in the care of other animal welfare organizations we work with in close collaboration.
“At Champion Petfoods, we are committed to supporting pets in need,” said Director of Human Resources Jess eide. “The people who work and volunteer in these animal welfare and animal rescue organizations are passionate about providing the necessary care and nutrition, and we are grateful for the impact they are having. Our work with them enables us to move forward towards our goal of Earning the trust of animal lovers every day for animals to thrive throughout their lives. We look forward to continuing our long-standing support for companion animals and rescue organizations in 2022. “
