MINNEAPOLIS (June 20, 2022): Chuck & Don’s Pet Food & Supplies, recently ranked by Newsweek as the number two pet retailer in the nation for 2022, is hosting a donation drive throughout the month of June to secure 15,000 cans of cat food that will benefit the Secondhand Hounds Chuck & Don’s Pet Wellness Center.
The Chuck & Don’s Wellness Center, located in Minneapolis, was created in partnership with Secondhand Hounds, which is one of the largest animal rescue organizations in the state, having saved more than 25,000 animals since 2009. In 2021, Chuck & Don’s helped Secondhand Hounds expand their facility from 2,000 to 8,000 square feet so that it could house the “People & Pets Together” food shelf, which helps pet parents facing economic hardship receive food and other services in an effort to keep pets healthy and remain in their loving forever homes. Last year, “People & Pets Together” distributed more than 200,000 pounds of dog and cat food to nearly 1,200 households in need of assistance.
The cat canned food drive further demonstrates Chuck & Don’s commitment to nourishment, a key pillar in their 5 Pillars of Pet Wellness®. By providing canned food via these critical donations, through the support of Secondhand Hounds and the Chuck & Don’s Pet Wellness Center, those in need can care for their pets, resulting in fewer pets ending up at the shelter.
Cat canned food donations can be dropped off at any of Chuck & Don’s 34 retail locations throughout Minneapolis and Wisconsin.
