Hill's Pet Nutrition Partners with The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement
Hill's Pet Nutrition teamed up with The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement to provide $400,000 in grants to animal shelters impacted by COVID-19.
Because the needs of animal shelters across the U.S. are varied, Hill's and The Association will provide financial assistance to shelters to support adoption programs, foster programs, veterinary care for in-shelter and foster pets, operational expenses and community support.
Applications for Hill's Disaster Relief Grants will be accepted until June 2 and will be paid out in full by Aug. 31. Eligible applicants can visit Hill's Support for Shelters to learn more and/or apply.
"...Over the last eight weeks, we've donated over 450,000 pounds of Hill's products to support pets in need, but the financial impact shelters have felt as a result of the pandemic means we must do more," said Jesper Nordengaard, president of Hill's. "Our strong relationship with The Association, coupled with their deep connections within the animal welfare community, creates a natural partnership that will allow us to quickly distribute this assistance to shelters that need it most.”
