As a company full of pet lovers, we know how much our local animal shelters and rescues need our support during the holiday season. For the past four years, we have organized a competition within our internal teams to see which team can come up with the most pet food to donate to the Seattle Humane Society’s pet food bank. The pet food bank distributes donated pet food to pet owners that may have trouble during the holiday season. Our goal was to beat last years’ record of 1.5 tons of pet food, which we succeeded at doing!
Throughout the competition, we collected 9,107 lbs of cat and dog food to give to Seattle Humane Society. That’s over 4 tons of pet food!
Seattle Humane posted “Our Pet Food Bank collects and distributes food for pets of seniors, people disabled by HIV/AIDS, and low-income cancer patients being treated at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and the Swedish Cancer Institute. With these donations we can ensure they will not be forced to give up their pets when they need them most. Thank you Trupanion!”
It’s a great feeling to help those in need during this time of the year. Share with us your ideas on how to help others this holiday season.
