LIVONIA, Mich., Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pet Supplies Plus has announced it will join the national movement to help the beloved pets and lost animals of Houston, Texas, in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Working closely with Pet Supplies Plus Texas neighborhood locations in Katy, Spring and Cyprus, the pet retail store has donated more than $30,000 worth of products to be sent down from company distribution centers to the three Houston-area Pet Supplies Plus stores. From there, the goods will be distributed to local Houston charities, including the Houston Humane Society, Houston SPCA and St. John the Divine.
Included in the donation are more than 4,000 bags and cans of dog food, 270 bolster mats, 900 packs of 50-count training pads, 1,300 interactive pet toys and 2,000 bags of dog treats. Pet Supplies Plus is working closely with its vendors to collect additional pallets of food and treats to be shipped to the region.
"The disaster in Houston has affected millions of people and what cannot go overlooked are the countless pets that the hurricane impacted as well," said Chris Rowland, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus. "We are doing everything in our power to assist local Houston animal shelters and charities during this trying time, and we sincerely thank our store owners, neighbors and partners who are helping us in our effort."
In addition to product donations, Pet Supplies Plus team members and franchisees are supporting relief efforts by generously giving their own time in the Houston area or by making a monetary donation. Many individual Pet Supplies Plus Stores across the country have set up product and donation stations in their local communities for Hurricane Harvey relief.
