Giving Back to Pet Rescues, Pet Shelters, K9s and SchoolsWe accomplished many goals at Pet Food Express in 2014, 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 2014, 814 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 120 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 www.petfoodexpressadoptions.com.
Pet Food Express donated more than $1.6 million in 2014 to over 50 police K-9 departments, 200+ rescues & shelters, and more than 100 schools in California.
How’d we do it?
