TEWKSBURY, Mass., Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kicking off the season of giving, Wellness® Natural Pet Food has teamed up with Chewy.com to raise food for pets in need through the Jackson Galaxy Foundation and its shelter partners. For each Wellness product sold on Chewy.com from November 1 through December 15, Wellness Natural Pet Food will donate one dog or cat food meal to the Jackson Galaxy Foundation, a non-profit organization aiming to better the lives of shelter animals. And as an additional incentive, Wellness will donate two meals for every one product purchased through Chewy.com's Autoship & Save auto replenishment program.
To give the gift of Wellness, pet parents who feed their dogs and cats natural recipes from Wellness can simultaneously help the three organizations donate up to 150,000 meals to the pets who need it most.
"The Jackson Galaxy Foundation has made it their mission to improve the lives of shelter pets, and we see rehabilitation through nutrition as an important aspect of quality of life. We're thrilled to be able to play a role in helping provide quality nutrition to these pets as they wait to be adopted," said Chanda Leary-Coutu, Senior Manager, Marketing Communications, for Wellness Natural Pet Food.
The Jackson Galaxy Foundation, which was recently launched by Animal Planet star Jackson Galaxy, focuses on programs that drive innovation, promotes improved shelter design and construction, and provides knowledge to inspire and empower animal advocates—improvements Galaxy believes will lead to higher adoption rates. Additionally, the organization awards shelters with monetary and food grants for immediate support.
"Overpopulation in pet shelters is a serious issue, but there are gestures we can make to help ensure that these animals receive the proper nutrition they require," said Galaxy. "We're grateful for the continued support we receive from Wellness and this latest effort will help ensure a better quality of life for these cats and dogs in need."
While many shelter pets are lucky enough to find their forever homes during the holidays, shelters are continually filling those empty cages by taking in new pets. Donations made possible by this initiative will help keep those pets happy and healthy by giving them the natural, balanced nutrition they need to support their overall wellbeing.
The donations are made possible through the WellPet Foundation, which allows Wellness to support organizations and activities that promote the power of natural nutrition and the benefits of healthy, active lifestyles.
