Kroger teams with Pedigree to raise more than $4,200 for animal shelter
Kroger and Pedigree Food for Dogs teamed up to raise more than $4,200 for the Humane Society of Montgomery County.
For two weeks in the spring, Kroger customers who purchased any Pedigree product supported donations for Pedigree shelters in the United States.
“The mid-Atlantic region chose the Humane Society of Montgomery County because of its need and capacity to house dogs and cats,” said spokeswoman Allison McGee.
A check for $4,211 has been presented to Erin Hall, vice president of the Humane Society of Montgomery County in Blacksburg.
“The purpose of this program is to provide shelter and food at no cost so dogs and cats can be healthy and happy while they wait for a new home,” explained McGee. “A consistent and nutritious diet is essential for them to be healthy and to make it easy to find a permanent home.”
The Humane Society of Montgomery County provides assistance in placing healthy adoptable animals through referral services and/or housing. The Humane Society is a “no-kill” shelter, so all adoptable animals are housed until suitable families are found. For more information, visit www.hsmcshelter.com.
Kroger operates 122 stores in the mid-Atlantic region, consisting of Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and the eastern portions of Tennessee, Kentucky and Ohio.
