Wellness Teams With Jackson Galaxy Foundation To Feed Pets In Need
With a mission to improve the lives of hungry shelter pets through better nutrition, Wellness Natural Pet Food (WNPF) has teamed up with Chewy.com to raise food for animals in need. From November 1 through December 15, WNPF will donate one dog or cat meal for each Wellness product sold on Chewy.com.
It’s no coincidence that the timing of this initiative ties in with the holiday season when the spirit of giving is at its peak and for upwards of 150,000 homeless dogs and cats, this means a tummy full of healthy food is in their near future. The donation of these meals is coordinated through the Jackson Galaxy Foundation, a non-profit organization that was recently launched by Animal Planet star Jackson Galaxy. The foundation’s goal is to drive adoption numbers through innovation, improved shelter design and construction, and providing inspiration and empowerment to animal advocates.
“Overpopulation in pet shelters is a serious issue, but there are gestures we can make to help ensure that these animals receive the proper nutrition they require,” said Galaxy. “We’re grateful for the continued support we receive from Wellness and this latest effort will help ensure a better quality of life for these cats and dogs in need.”
But it doesn’t end there. As an added incentive, WNPF will donate an extra meal (two meals total) for each Wellness product purchased through Chewy.com’s Autoship & Save replenishment program.
Between the three organizations, it’s expected that numbers will indeed hit the 150,000 mark and that animals in need will receive top quality foods while they wait for their forever home.
Noting that shelter over-population is a growing concern, Galaxy feels that these gestures are just one more step in ensuring these animals receive proper care and nutrition.
