Pet Pantry Warehouse Unveils “Donatable Dollars” Campaign
In an effort to meet the community's needs during the COVID-19 health crisis, Pet Pantry Warehouse has partnered with many of its premium pet food brands to offer Pet One Member discounts to all customers in addition to raising money through sales for local COVID-19 relief funds.
Brands include Bravo, Bixbi, Champion (Orijen/Acana), Earth Animal, Earthborn, Triumph, Farmina, Koha, Greenies, Merrick, Nature's Variety, Open Farm, Petcurean (Go!/Now!), Primal, Rawz, Raised Right, Stella & Chewy’s, Sustainably Yours, Wellpet, and ZiwiPeak.
Hundreds of Pet Pantry items are now on sale. Sale prices are pre-programmed and already reflected in the retail prices visible on the online ordering site and in the Pet Pantry point of sale system.
“Every time a customer purchases a bag of food, treats, or supplies on sale from a participating brand, that company will be matching the discount amount and making a contribution in ‘Donatable Dollars,’” said Adam Jacobson, Pet Pantry Warehouse executive vice president. “This is a win-win for everyone. Our customers get to shop hundreds of items on sale, receive discounts on the items purchased and help us donate within their community.”
Last month Pet Pantry transitioned its brick and mortar in-store sales model to a curbside pick system through phone orders and just recently the pet supply retailer rolled out an all-new online sales platform. The family business, celebrating 75 years serving the community, was designated an "essential" business by New York and Connecticut state in March.
Among the various relief funds that will receive money through the campaign is the Greenwich United Way, New Canaan Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund, Al’s Angels, Operation Hope, United Way of Westchester and Putnam, United Way of Coastal Fairfield County. Jacobson is in the process of reaching out to other organizations in Fairfield and Westchester County.
The Pet Pantry team understands the need for pet foster homes and is working with Petcurean to help those opening their homes to new animals during this uncertain time. In an effort to provide quality food for temporary and/or new four-legged family members, Pet Pantry has already donated 50 "Welcome Waggin Kits" to Pet Rescue NY. The kits will be given to anyone who chooses to adopt or foster during the health crisis.
“We are so pleased to support this initiative from our great partner, Pet Pantry Warehouse, during this extraordinary time,” said Christine Mallier, community relations manager at Petcurean.
