Petcurean Donates Over 1,000 Pounds of Food



Petcurean donated 1,000 lbs. of food to help dogs and cats stranded in Burns Lake and the surrounding areas impacted by the Northern B.C. wildfires.


This donation will support organizations such as the Lakes Animal Friendship Society, who now need food donations to feed animals left behind when people were forced to quickly evacuate. Petcurean is now working with its distributors to get food to the region as fast as possible.


“Petcurean believes in giving back to our communities and helping to support these animals because we know it’s the right thing to do, especially in desperate situations like the Northern B.C. wildfires,” said Christine Mallier, PR and community relations manager at Petcurean. “Our company was founded on the principle of putting pets first, and it’s important that we do our part to help care for these animals until they are reunited with the rest of their families.”


“The donation of high quality Canadian pet food from Petcurean is a huge help to our animals and families impacted by the wildfires,” said Alistair Schroff, forester and co-founder of Lakes Animal Friendship Society. “We could not have met the needs without donations like the one Petcurean is making. The effects of this disaster will ripple into the coming weeks, months and years. We are grateful to everyone who remembers this and offers support going forward.”


Recently, the company donated 3,000 lbs. of pet food to shelters and rescues impacted by both the Carr Fire and the Northern Manitoba Fires. In 2017, Petcurean made 243 donations, for a total of 31,820 lbs. of food.
