Petland Charities Partners with RCHS
The program, which begins Feb. 1, will provide Petland’s private label Heartland Naturals dog food at no cost to the shelter.
“While we’ve had food donations in the past to feed our dogs, that program recently became unfeasible for us,” said Jenn Thomas, executive director of RCHS. “Petland Charities stepping up will save our shelter thousands of dollars we would have otherwise spent on food that can now be redirected to other aspects of providing care, like medical needs and outreach.”
Petland Charities also provided the shelter staff with a one-hour educational session on Heartland Naturals food, ingredients, feeding requirements and other details about the program.
“We are grateful for this opportunity to provide consistent, nutritional food to the dogs at RCHS,” said Steve Huggins, Petland Charities executive director. “Jenn does a fantastic job promoting the shelter and finding homes for dogs in the community and we are happy to be able to support her efforts any way we can.”
In addition to the food donation contract, Petland Charities will be providing a free bag of Heartland Naturals food and a $50 gift card for every person who adopts a dog. Since March 2016, Petland has redeemed more than $50,000 in gift cards from RCHS adopters.
