Giving Back to Pet Rescues, Pet Shelters, K9s and Schools
We accomplished many goals at Pet Food Express (PFE) in 2015, but are most proud of the number of homeless animals placed in new homes.
More than 10,000 dogs, cats and small animals found forever homes via adoption events at our stores and through the nine permanent cat adoption centers!
In October 2015, 1,058 dogs, cats, bunnies, hamsters, roosters and other adorable animals found new homes during the Pet Food Express Bay Area Pet Fair in Marin. This was an increase of over 240 pet adoptions from the previous year’s event!
It’s been thrilling to see more than 125,000 pets go to forever homes over the last decade, thanks to our wonderful adoption partners, including Pet Food Express Adoptions.
PFE donated more than $2 million in 2015 to over 50 police K-9 departments, 200+ rescues & shelters, and more than 100 schools in California.
How’d we do it?
$300,000+ donated to California pet rescues/shelters via our 20/20 adoption program
$260,000 donated to pet groups via the My Mutt program
$122,000 to the Save a Kitten campaign (plus product donations)
$162,000 to Cover your K-9, the annual police dog fundraiser
$220,000 for local rescues and shelters via the Giving Tree (plus product donations)
- $750,000 of food and litter donations to California rescues and shelters
Our passion for helping the animal community is strongly visible at each of our 59 California stores. For the sixth year running, Pet Food Express was named one of the Top Bay Area Work Places!
Thank you to all our customers and employees—we couldn’t do this without your passion, commitment and generosity.
On October 15 & 16, 2016, the Pet Food Express Bay Area Pet Fair will feature more than 70 California pet rescues and shelters, with over 1,000 adoptable dogs, cats & small animals. More about the pet fair
