As we begin the new year, we know the effects of the crisis will continue to be felt even after the pandemic comes to an end. An estimated that 4.2 million pets will enter poverty in the next six months as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, potentially causing millions to surrender their pets.
We hope no pet parent ever has to choose between putting food on their table or in their pet’s bowl, that’s why we’re proud to be making a $10 Million commitment to provide pet food for families facing economic hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis through 2021.
Watch this message from PetSmart Charities President, Aimee Gilbreath, to see how every dollar makes a difference.
We wouldn’t be able to do it without your support. While our partners are working hard to adapt and are scaling to keep families together, it’s your generosity that makes real change possible. YOU help us turn generous donations into life-changing support, every single dollar has the power to make a BIG difference.
