Most of you know by now that I love PetSmart®. I buy all of my pet supplies there, which includes treats, toys and of course food for my dogs and cats. It’s also well known that Wynston is a model for PetSmart, so you could say that I hold a bit of a bias. Although I frequently rant and rave about PetSmart, it isn’t just because they are a great store and my dog models for them. PetSmart is always working to make the lives of pet better, whether it’s your pet or another animal in need. For their 30th anniversary, PetSmart just announced their biggest philanthropic program ever. They hope to contribute more than 60 million meals with the Buy A Bag, Give A Meal™ campaign.
Buy A Bag, Give A Meal™
Do you wish you could contribute more to animal welfare? The PetSmart Buy A Bag, Give A Meal™ program allows you to help pets in need without making any kind of extra donation. All you have to do is buy your bag of dog or cat food at PetSmart and voila – they will donate meals to pets in need through animal shelters, pet rescues or food banks. How amazing is that?! You literally just have to buy pet food and you’re helping hungry animals.
As if I didn’t love PetSmart enough already, I am blown away by the generosity of this initiative. The entire campaign runs until December 31, 2017, giving you plenty of time to buy lots of food and in turn donate a plethora of meals to hungry dogs and cats. Check out the wonderful video below and subscribe to PetSmart on YouTube!
How can I participate?
It’s easy, really. All you have to do is go online to PetSmart.com or into one of the 1,500+ PetSmart stores in the US, Canada or Puerto Rico and purchase a bag of dog or cat food. Then, PetSmart will automatically donate a meal! PetSmart offers an extremely large variety of pet food so if you don’t already purchase yours at the retail chain, I encourage you to start doing so! Think about all of the hungry animals you will feed with your dog and cat food purchases :)When your pet eats, pets in need eat too.
