PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Pet Supermarket and Pet Valu have launched a chain-wide donation drive to aid families and pets affected by this disaster. The company has also donated $100,000 in pet food and products. Pet Valu and Pet Supermarket stores will be accepting donations to support the Houston SPCA and other local shelters between now and the end of September.
During the evacuations, many pets were lost or left behind and local animal shelters in the Texas area are in critical need of support. The seven Houston Pet Supermarket stores are closed and, like many business and homes, are under floodwaters.
"Our hearts go out to the people and pets of Houston and the state of Texas," said Tom McNeely, CEO of Pet Supermarket and Pet Valu. "We hope that our donation and in-store fundraiser will help with the recovery effort and provide some relief for those affected."
