Tiki Pets Donates Food to Shelters, Rescues and Pet Foster Families in Need
Tiki Pets donated $750,000 worth of its Tiki Dog and Tiki Cat food to shelters, rescues and pet foster families in need, providing 348,000 meals for cats and 100,000 meals for small dogs.
To ensure the donation reaches the communities and groups where it can do the most good, Tiki Pets teamed up with Rescue Bank, a signature program of GreaterGood.org, that partners with non-profit animal welfare and social services agencies across North America. Rescue Bank has developed a network of affiliate partners that understand their communities and provide local distribution services, delivering millions of meals to pets in need every year.
“Whether the food is used to help a needy family who might not otherwise be able to keep their foster pet or support an animal welfare organization that has lost a large part of its revenue stream, donating Tiki Dog and Tiki Cat food is a way we can offer assistance during this unprecedented crisis,” said Melia Reeves-Long, consumer engagement associate at Tiki Pets, who herself became a work-at-home foster mom to Barrett, a 3-year-old male cat from Gateway Pet Guardians found wandering the streets of East St. Louis.
“The COVID-19 pandemic is creating an unprecedented animal sheltering crisis, while also affecting pet parents, so it is our duty to step in and offer assistance on a national level by creating a network of relief distribution centers with our local animal shelter partners while also supporting them,” said Liz Baker, CEO for GreaterGood.org. “Our goal is to provide local animal shelters and pet parents struggling financially with pet food and supplies so they can continue to care for the pets they love during this challenging and stressful time.”
