Toronto, February 25, 2015 – It has been said that a “nation’s greatness can be determined by the way its animals are treated”, and this year Canadians did themselves proud with a record-breaking Show Us Your HeartTM fundraiser.
Thanks to the generous donations of across the country, Global Pet Foods and Natural Balance® Pet Foods, Inc. raised over $230,000 for local animal shelters and pet rescue groups across Canada. Show Us Your Heart™ has now raised over one million dollars to help animals in need.
“Once again our customers have shown the size of their hearts through their donations and support,” said Jim Walker, President of Global Pet Foods. “We saw a 16% increase in donations over last year, and thanks to their generosity, this was a truly landmark year. To date we have now raised over one million dollars, which has gone to help over 100 shelters who provide much needed care to homeless pets.”
Homeless pets like Hudson, a Saint Bernard, who after being rescued by Animal Angel Rescue Foundation (AARF) was diagnosed with heartworm. Donations raised through Show Us Your HeartTM will help AARF cover Hudson’s heartworm treatment and veterinary bills until his forever home is found.
Global Pet Foods and Natural Balance® Pet Foods, Inc. then matched the first dollar of each in-store donation. All proceeds raised during Show Us Your HeartTM will be donated to local animal shelters and rescue groups across Canada.
