Petcurean Donates 270,000 Meals To Support Dogs & Cats in Need Across Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec
270,000 Meals Donated to Coincide with National Puppy & Cuddly Kitten Day
CHILLIWACK, BC (MARCH 23, 2020) – As part of their continuing mission to put pets first, Petcurean, a Canadian premium pet food manufacturer, is donating 270,000 meals of premium quality dog and cat food to support the important work of animal shelters, rescue groups, and homeless shelters that accommodate pets in Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for pet food at shelters is increasing. Petcurean’s donation of food is a step towards helping these groups maintain their operations during this time.
To help raise awareness of the heightened need for help at shelters at this time, since donations are down and most adoptions have been halted, Petcurean’s donations are being made in conjunction with National Puppy Day and Cuddly Kitten Day, both of which are marked on March 23, 2020. It is widely recognized that pets provide much needed comfort and companionship, and this day is a great reminder to spend quality time with pets while at home. Petcurean is also encouraging individuals who are able to do so, to contact their local animal rescue group or shelter, to see what kind of help they might need.
For example, although many shelters are closed during this difficult time, many are still accepting donations by appointment, and looking for other types of assistance.
Multiple recipes and formulations are being provided in the donations across Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec, including for puppies and kittens, adult dogs and cats, senior pets, and those pets with food sensitivities. Shipments are currently en-route, with donations being made to the following organizations:
- Manitoba Mutts – Manitoba
- Etobicoke Humane Society – Ontario
- Furr Get Me Not – Ontario
- Humane Society of Durham Region – Ontario
- Mississauga Humane Society – Ontario
