Stella & Chewy's Pledges To Cover Adoption Fees For Senior Pets Rescued From U.S. Shelters
Stella & Chewy's pledged to cover the cost of adoption fees for senior pets rescued from any shelter in the U.S. during the month of November in honor of National Adopt a Senior Pet Month.
Through the initiative, the company hopes to spotlight the many benefits of rescuing a senior pet and to drive as many senior pet adoptions as possible.
Pet parents who open their homes and family this month to a senior rescue pet – which includes dogs and cats age 4 and older, can visit the company's website to submit their adoption forms for fee reimbursement, courtesy of Stella & Chewy's. Applicable senior pet parents will also receive a month's worth of free Stella & Chewy's food.
Stella & Chewy's commitment to supporting senior pet rescue spans National Adopt a Senior Pet Month and beyond. The company established its Journey Home Fund program, aiming to bring awareness to the awesomeness of senior pet adoption. As part of the Journey Home Fund, every purchase helps feed adult and senior shelter pets. Since 2018, the company has donated more than half a million meals to shelters and rescues and continues to donate a minimum of 250,000 meals each year.
"Stella & Chewy's has long placed a focus on senior pet adoption, but this year we wanted to do something extra special to support this important cause, and what better time to do so than National Adopt a Senior Pet Month?!" said Marie Moody, founder, Stella & Chewy's."My dogs Stella & Chewy, who were the inspiration behind our company, were both senior rescues, so I know first-hand the impact a senior pet adoption can make on the lives of both pets and their owners.”
