Barkworthies Launches New Shelter Program
Barkworthies has kicked off its new Chews Rescue shelter program with a $10,000 donation and pro-rescue Facebook campaign. The Chews Rescue program was developed as a tribute to everyone that assists in animal rescue and the positive impact it makes on individual families and communities.
The company donated the funds to Richmond Animal Rescue, along with a supply of treats for the rescue’s dogs. Beginning on March 1, Barkworthies launched a two-month Facebook campaign that invites pet parents to support animal rescue by sharing photos of their own rescue pets. For each Facebook entry until April 30, the company will donate an additional $5 to the Richmond Animal League.
At the end of the Facebook campaign, one entrant will be randomly selected to receive a year’s supply of Barkworthies treats and chews, and a 500-piece product donation will go to an animal shelter in the winner’s honor.
“When my wife and I got our dogs, Espy and Sushi, it changed our lives,” said Barkworthies’ CEO and co-founder Avrum Elmakis. “They were the inspiration to create Barkworthies and, ultimately, shaped the brand's commitment and standards. We hope the Chews Rescue program gives back in a meaningful and significant way—it’s our way of saying thank you.”
