Petcurean Supports Pets Displaced by Hurricane Florence with Food Donation
Petcurean has donated 1,000 pounds of pet food to the Greenville Humane Society, which took in more than 65 animals from other shelters and residents in South Carolina’s Low Country and other areas that needed to flee due to Hurricane Florence. Another 1,000 pounds of pet food has been donated to Naturally Unleashed, a pet specialty store in Fayetteville, N.C., which is working with its local Chamber of Commerce to donate pet food to many people in the area who are still unable to return home after the storm.
Hurricane Florence caused major flooding, power outages and property damage in the Carolinas and Virginia after making landfall on Sept. 14.
Due to the size and anticipated impact of the storm, weather officials placed more than one million people under evacuation orders. Unfortunately, as people left the area, many pets were left behind. Knowing that food is scarce, and pets are in need, Petcurean is donating food with help from one of its Pennsylvania distributors.
“The areas affected by Hurricane Florence have weeks of difficult recovery ahead,” said Christine Mallier, PR and community relations manager at Petcurean in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. “We are grateful to have the opportunity to provide even a small bit of aid so that organizations like the Greenville Humane Society and Naturally Unleashed can adequately provide for the many pets that have been displaced by the storm and are waiting to be reunited with their families, or who are still with their families but unable to return home.”
