The gift represents one of the largest donations of pet food to OHS
Oregon Humane Society has received a 73,000-pound donation of pet food, worth more than $250,000, from Stella & Chewy’s.
Stella & Chewy’s is a premium nutritional pet food company based out of Oak Creek, Wisconsin, which has long showed support for shelter animals across the U.S.
The gift represents one of the largest donations of pet food to OHS.
The food from Stella & Chewy’s will be used to feed shelter pets and distributed to the public during a two-day pet food bank for the public that begins on Giving Tuesday.
“Stella & Chewy’s is committed to supporting animal shelters and rescue organization across the country that are devoted to improving the lives of pets in need through our Journey Home Fund program,” said Marie Moody, Founder of Stella & Chewy’s. “We’re fortunate to be in a position to be able to help and we’re happy to be working with the Oregon Humane Society for Giving Tuesday during this challenging year.”
The Oregon Humane Society currently has more than 400 animals in its care and helps thousands of pets find new homes each year. Helping pet-owners care for their beloved companions has been a focus for OHS during the pandemic. In April, OHS launched a state-wide effort to distribute more than 50,000 pounds of pet food to shelters and food pantries in every county on Oregon. In June, OHS hosted a pet food bank at the main shelter and distributed thousands of pounds of pet food, cat litter and other supplies to essential workers and those facing unemployment.
“We’re so grateful for this generous gift from Stella & Chewy’s, as it will make a direct positive impact on the dogs in our care, and for pet-owners in the community.” said Sharon Harmon, President and CEO of Oregon Humane Society.
