SUMMERSIDE — The local Global Pet Foods location is joining the chain’s national campaign aimed at giving a helping hand to area animal shelters.
Global Pet Foods has launched its 8th Annual Show Us Your Heart Campaign, which helps shine a spotlight on homeless pets.
Teaming up with the business is Don Cherry, well-known hockey and television personality and animal lover.
“There is nothing more heartbreaking than a homeless pet wanting to be loved,” said Cherry. “Show Us Your Heart is an easy way to give back and make a real difference to pets in need.”
From Feb. 1 to 15, Global Pet Foods along with Cherry, are asking Canadian pet parents to donate as little as $1 to help raise funds for local animal shelters across Canada, including the P.E.I. Humane Society, the province’s only animal shelter.
“When you donate to Show Us Your Heart you’re supporting smaller, community-based organizations — the local shelters and groups that don't receive government funding or have their own fundraising departments,” said Jim Walker, president of Global Pet Foods. “These shelters do all the work, often on their own dime and through the blood, sweat, and tears of volunteers. This is our way of giving back to them.”
To donate, visit any Global Pet Foods, including the Summerside location at 454 Granville St. Every dollar donated will be matched.
Donations can also be made online at www.globalpetfoods.com.
Since 2006, the Show Us Your Heart campaign has raised more than $570,000 for local animal shelters across the country.
