Global Pet Food Stores Help Homeless Pets Find Love This Valentine's


Help Homeless Pets find love this Valentine’s!

Toronto, ON—Global Pet Foods and Hill’s® Science Diet® are asking Canadian pet parents to help homeless pets find love during the annual Show Us Your Heart fundraiser-February 12- 19, 2011.

The Show Us Your Heart campaign raises much needed funds for animal shelters across Canada and since 2007 has successfully generated over $150,000 for homeless pets.

“Show Us Your Heart is unique because our store owners each select a local shelter or rescue group to support. So when you visit your local Global Pet Foods and donate a dollar, you’re making a real difference to homeless pets in your community,” says Global Pet Foods President Jim Walker.

To donate, visit any Global Pet Foods store from February 12-19. All proceeds will go to local animal shelters. Donate as little as a $1 and Global Pet Foods and Hill’s® Science Diet® will match it. Plus enter in-store to win a year’s supply of Hill’s® Science Diet® pet food for your furry Valentine.

You can also make a PayPal donation at Facebook.com/globalpetfoods and enter to win 1 of 5 $100 Global Pet Foods gift cards.
