Pet Supermarket Partners with U.S. Dogs War Association
“We believe in the mission of the U.S. War Dogs and we are proud to facilitate efforts with our customers to help our military canines be equipped while on active duty,” said Frank Morales, director of marketing at Pet Supermarket. “This fundraiser is our way to encourage the community to give back to the four-legged service members helping to protect our country.”
From July 4 through Patriot Day, September 11, 2019, Pet Supermarket will donate proceeds from the sales of its $5 limited-edition patriotic bandanas to the United States War Dogs Association. Stores will also display decorative “paper paws” to represent donations from customers to the fundraiser.
Donations from the fundraiser will contribute to covering the costs of equipment for the dogs on active duty. They will also help cover costs for transporting veteran war dogs back to the U.S. after service, reuniting them with their former service member handlers, finding them forever homes, and providing free medications and care to both active and retired Military War Dogs.
“The United States War Dogs Association, Inc. is able to pay for prescriptions and other expensive medical care for our retired Military War Dogs, thanks to our relationship with Pet Supermarket,” said Ron Aiello, president of the United States War Dogs Association.
Since the campaign’s inception in 2016, Pet Supermarket has raised a total of $810,981 for the United States War Dogs Association.
