FRANKLIN, Tenn., Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EUKANUBA™ Brand and PetFlow's Good Deeds Program have partnered up with Rescue Bank to donate a bowl of dog food to shelters in the U.S. for every purchase made on www.PetFlow.com during August. The total EUKANUBA™ donation for the month is estimated to be about 12,000 pounds of dog food, plus an additional bowl of food for every PetFlow shipment of EUKANUBA™.
All purchases made through PetFlow in August will provide food donations for a shelter dog's wellbeing, while helping to raise awareness of the many adoptable shelter pets that are ready for a family.
"We strive to make a positive difference in the lives of dogs so they can be their best at every stage of life," said Mark Fannin, EUKANUBA™ Brand Manager. "By partnering with PetFlow and Rescue Bank, we'll help shelters spend less on food so they can put more into healthcare, rehab and enrichment to make a difference in lives of shelter pets in need."
The shelters receiving donations of EUKANUBA™ for the month of August are Maranatha Farm in Ridgeland, SC; Second Chance Rescue in Flushing, NY; Lucky Day Rescue Inc. in Loganville, GA; and Pets & People Humane Society in Yukon, OK. You can follow #PFGoodDeeds on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/petflow) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/petflow/) to read the stories about the shelter pets being helped with a EUKANUBA™ purchase on Petflow.
