"There are millions of animals in need every day and we at PetFoodDirect.com are excited to try and raise $100,000." - Brock Weatherup, CEO
Harleysville, PA (PRWEB) November 18, 2009
PetFoodDirect.com is announcing its 1st annual Thanksgiving savings event with the goal of raising $100,000 for animal caregivers while providing great savings to individual pet owners nationwide. In an effort to help animal caregivers get the resources they need to care for animals through the holidays, PetFoodDirect.com will donate 10% of all sales from November 21st through November 29th to deserving animal welfare organizations.
“There are millions of animals in need every day and we at PetFoodDirect.com are excited to try and raise $100,000 to support the amazing people who selflessly provide for these great animals," said Brock Weatherup, CEO of PetFoodDirect.com. “Unfortunately during this difficult economic time, animals suffer as much as people do as their needs grow and resources shrink. By working with experienced partners such as the Pennsylvania SPCA and Alley Cat Allies, PetFoodDirect.com hopes to provide some much-needed funding to these great organizations when they need it the most."
Beginning November 21, 2009, each customer who places an order on PetFoodDirect.com will be donating 10% of that purchase price to these great organizations while also saving 10% for themselves! The funds raised will be evenly divided as a charitable donation to these two fantastic organizations. The PetFoodDirect.com “Matching Hearts” charity campaign will end on November 29, 2009. The campaign’s goal is to raise $100,000.
In 2010, PetFoodDirect.com will be embarking on an extensive campaign to partner with the Pennsylvania SPCA and other pet hunger organizations in an effort to help address and end animal and pet hunger. PetFoodDirect.com will help by providing much needed food to shelters as well as helping organize pet food bank programs so that pet owners won’t need to surrender their pets to shelters just because they can’t afford to feed them.
