Champion Petfoods Aids Relief Efforts



Champion Petfoods donated enough pet food for 21,000 meals, after answering a call from Happy Tails Barkery and Pet Supplies requesting donations for victims of the Carr Fire in Redding, Calif.


The fire has destroyed more than 1,000 homes, leaving hundreds of dogs and cats in need of help. Happy Tails Barkery and Pet Supplies is collecting and distributing food, home goods and supplies for people and pets.


“We are pleased to be able to support our partners at Happy Tails in this important cause,” said Frank Burdzy, Champion Petfoods president and CEO. “At Champion, we are passionate pet lovers, so helping other pet lovers in need is something a trusted partner does.”


Champion’s shipment of its ACANA brand pet food arrived on Thursday, Aug. 23 and was distributed to five local rescues, including Paws for A Cause Rescue Coalition, Tails of Rescue, Raining Cats & Dogs, Pedro GTP Relief and Annie’s Pet Rescue.


“We are immensely grateful to Champion Petfoods for providing nutritious meals to our communities’ four-legged family members, who were put out due to the Carr Fire,” said Caitlyn Patterson, managing and donation director of Happy Tails. “Our rescues can rest easy knowing that food will be there when they need it.”
