Petcurean Donates Pet Food to Help Animal Rescues in the Bahamas
Petcurean, along with Southeast Pet and Phillips Pet Food, recently donated 17,000 pounds of dog and cat food to the Bahamas Humane Society to aid animals in need after Hurricane Dorian.
Petcurean recently donated 17,000 pounds of dog and cat food to the Bahamas Humane Society in Nassau to help provide relief to displaced animals affected by Hurricane Dorian. The pet food is being donated in conjunction with Petcurean’s distribution partners, Southeast Pet in Austell, Ga., and Phillips Pet Food & Supplies in Easton, Pa.
The storm first hit on Sept. 1, and completely devastated the Bahamas, leaving 60 percent of homes destroyed and tens of thousands in need of urgent disaster relief, according to company officials. The Category 5 storm also impacted Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia.
“The damage that this storm has caused is unimaginable, and we hope to provide even the smallest bit of relief, comfort and hope for the families and precious pets affected by Hurricane Dorian,” said Christine Mallier, public relations and community relations manager at Petcurean, which is headquartered in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. “As the rebuilding begins, we want to do what we can to support the local animal shelters that have no doubt been inundated with displaced animals waiting to be reunited with their families.”
Petcurean officials said that they are committed to helping pets and pet owners that are impacted by natural disasters and supporting the incredible animal rescue groups that work tirelessly to assist animals in need. This year, Petcurean has made 193 donations so far, with a total of more than 92,600 pounds of food donated in 2019.
