Carefresh Kicks Off “Gives Back” Donation Program
Carefresh, a brand of Ferndale, Wash.-based Healthy Pet, has kicked off its second annual Gives Back donation program, with Orlando Farm Rescue as the featured recipient. One new recuse will be chosen every two months.
Orlando Farm Rescue, which provides rescue, rehabilitation and sanctuary to farm animals in Orlando, Fla., was selected based on customer input, according to officials. Throughout the year, Carefresh asks its customers to nominate their favorite small animal shelters and rescue organizations.
Selected shelters will receive a donation of Carefresh bedding—the amount is based on each rescue’s number of annual adoptions. In addition, each person who adopts a small animal from the rescue during the next 12 months will receive a coupon for $5 off their first bag of Carefresh bedding.
More than 48,000 liters of bedding were donated through the program last year, according to officials.
“We’re proud to have worked with such great and deserving organizations during the first year of our Carefresh Gives Back program,” said Leslie Ellis, communications manager at Carefresh. “They are caring for small animals of all varieties, and they can’t always afford to provide the best bedding. This year, we’re looking forward to learning about even more small animal shelters and rescue organizations that could benefit from a donation of our sustainable bedding through our website’s nomination form.”
