Healthy Spot Rounds Up Over $100,000 for Animal Welfare
Healthy Spot, a Southern California pet retailer with four locations, raised over $100,000 through its Round Up For Rescues program. The program benefits various groups and organizations committed to help animals in need or raising awareness to animal welfare issues.
Through the program, when a purchase is made at any Healthy Spot's locations, one of the staff may ask customer if they would like to "round up" the change to an even dollar amount for charity. The concept was implemented by co-owners Andrew Kim and Mark Boonnak upon opening the first location in 2008.
“We started the round up program because we felt that Healthy Spot could serve as an instrument to the community. We are ecstatic that all this 'change' has added up—exceeding $100,000," Kim said. "The little change here and there has made a big difference in the local animal welfare community. We are grateful that all our loyal customers have supported this program and thank them for rounding up.”
Many organizations have benefited from the program, including The Bill Foundation, LA Love and Leashes, Forte Animal Rescue, Labs and Friends, NKLA, Best Friends, Animal Advocates Alliance, Wags and Walks, The Rescue Train and Operation Blankets of Love.
Healthy Spot’s philanthropic programs extend beyond “Round Up for Rescues” and include a full calendar of local and regional events benefitting multiple animal rescue and adoption organizations.
