Many of our fans have inquired about our Tropical Storm Sandy relief efforts. Here’s an update:
- We are currently working to get trucks to our Staten Island store located at 2795 Richmond Ave., Staten Island to help victims in this hard-hit region. We’d like to thank Hill’s Science Diet and Natural Balance for their help with this effort.
- Our Union Square, NYC store, located at 860 Broadway, will be hosting a donation event for people and pets this Saturday and Sunday in partnership with Rock & Rawhide and the Mayor’s Alliance of NYC. If you’re in the area, please stop by and donate a bag of food to a pet or a family in need. Out-of-state folks can contact the store to “buy” a bag of food to be donated. Additionally, we will be donating dog and cat food to be provided to the Red Cross for distribution. We’d like to thank our friends at Wellness Pet Food and Blue Buffalo for helping us with these efforts. And, for folks still without power, we’ll have free battery-operated lights on hand for distribution.
In addition to these broad-based efforts, we are also working with individual shelters to help with specific food and supply needs:
