We know that our customers love their dogs and we’re excited to be supporting an organization that is helping to give dogs, and the people who care for them, safer, happier homes.
Manchester, NH (PRWEB) April 06, 2017
Carpet One Floor & Home has teamed up with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and supporting the AKC Humane Fund with a $10,000 donation, to show their appreciation for dogs and dog-lovers during their Relax, it’s…Lees Flooring Sale which runs from March 2nd through April 10th.
The Relax, it’s…Lees carpet featured in the flooring retailer’s promotion is one of their most pet-friendly brands. With stain-resistant attributes and an even a 25-year “No Exclusions” stain warranty that covers stains most other stain warranties don’t. One of the most significant stains covered under this warranty is pet stains.
“Our Relax, it’s…Lees brand has always been closely tied to pets,” said Terri Daniels, VP of Public Relations at Carpet One Floor & Home. “During this campaign, we really wanted to show our love for dogs and our appreciation for our customers who have pets in their homes.”
The AKC Humane Fund supports dogs and the people who love them through grants and scholarships to individuals and organizations who are helping dogs. These include:
Grants for Domestic Violence Shelters that Permit Pets
The AKC Humane Fund gives grants to shelters that house victims of domestic abuse with their pets. Too often, fear for the safety of a beloved pet is enough to keep a victim of domestic violence suffering in a dangerous situation at home. AKC Humane Fund grants help these pet owners find peace and safety and transform their lives.
The AKC Humane Fund also provides funding for non-profit rescue organizations to cover the cost of veterinary care and vital supplies needed to help dogs find their forever homes.
The AKC Humane Fund awards thousands of dollars in scholarships every year to students who are pursuing education focusing on the care of pets and the advancement of responsible pet ownership.
“We know that our customers love their dogs and we’re excited to be supporting an organization that is helping to give dogs, and the people who care for them, safer, happier homes,” said Daniels.
In addition to donating to the AKC Humane Fund to help support their mission, Carpet One Floor & Home will be using their social networks to help get the word out about the Fund and sharing pet care tips from the AKC.
“We appreciate the generous contribution from Carpet One Floor & Home,” said Gina DiNardo, Vice President of the American Kennel Club. “Their donation will help us to provide more funds to organizations who are a making a difference every day in peoples’ and dogs’ lives.”
