Jacksonville, FL. (PRWEB) November 10, 2015
Pet Paradise Resort kicked off its 7th Annual Food for Paws Pet Food Drive to benefit local animal welfare groups and pet owners in need on November 9.
Food for Paws will assist 13 pet food banks and numerous pet owners who are struggling to feed their pets. Local residents can help bring a little bit of paradise to pets in need this holiday season by donating a bag of pet food to their local Pet Paradise. Families who donate 20 pounds or more of pet food to the drive will receive one complimentary night of boarding at any Pet Paradise. Food for Paws will end December 31, 2015.
"Pet Paradise is committed to helping furry companions in need during the holidays," Fred Goldsmith, Pet Paradise Resort CEO and Executive Chairman, said. "We are proud to support our local communities and hope to raise awareness of so many valuable charities."
Overall, Pet Paradise Resort has donated more than 112,000 pounds of pet food in the past six years. In 2014, Pet Paradise Resort collected and distributed over 37,000 pounds of pet food to numerous animal welfare groups in the United States.
