Merrick Pet Care Reveals BBQ For Good Campaign
Merrick Pet Care, Inc. revealed its BBQ 4 Good campaign to support shelter dogs with the release of its new slow-cooked BBQ recipes for dogs.
Today through July 4, Merrick will donate $1 (up to $25,000) to North Shore Animal League America for every order placed on DoorDash that uses the promo code BBQ4GOOD. Additionally, Merrick will a $10 donation (up to $10,000) for every carry-out or delivery order placed directly from a participating restaurant. Participating restaurants and shelters include la Barbecue and Austin Pets Alive! in Austin; Blue Pit BBQ and The Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter in Baltimore; and Smoke Daddy and PAWS Chicago in Chicago. For every order placed directly through a restaurant, pet parents will also receive a can of Merrick’s new slow-cooked BBQ.
Each slow-cooked BBQ recipe is crafted with all-natural ingredients and safely cooked in the U.S. The new recipes start with beef, pork or chicken as the first ingredient and feature real, whole vegetables, such as sweet potatoes and carrots, in a savory broth that adds flavor and moisture to a dog’s diet. The BBQ offerings, inspired by four regional styles, include Texas Style with Braised Beef, Kansas City Style with Chopped Pork, Carolina Style with Smokey Sausage and Memphis Style with Glazed Chicken.
“While interest in pet adoption has never been higher, local shelters need our support more than ever,” said Barbara Liss, vice president of marketing for Merrick Pet Care. “At the same time, local restaurants have faced significant challenges this year. At Merrick, we know how to deliver tasty and nutritious meals to pet food bowls. By working together with DoorDash and local BBQ restaurants, we are able to deliver on our commitment to giving back to the community by supporting local restaurants and helping shelter pets at the same time.”
