NutriCanine, a raw dog food delivery service, is donating 1,000 pounds of dog food to vulnerable and immuno-compromised members of the community, as well as those financially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Toronto-based startup aims to help ensure that everyone can continue to access healthy, nutritious food for their pets amid store closures, self-isolation and social distancing. In support of government recommendations and response efforts across Canada, NutriCanine is enforcing heightened safety protocols and is continuing to offer contact-free delivery.
“I love my dog Bella more than anything in the world. I can’t imagine the reality that some people are facing of having to choose between self-isolating for the safety of themselves and others, or being able to go out and get food for their dog,” says Jason Knight, Founder of NutriCanine. “Pets reduce stress and anxiety, and that’s what a lot of us need right now. Finding food to take care of them shouldn’t be an added worry. Everyone should have access to essential items like pet food.”
To further assist the community, NutriCanine will also be reducing prices by 30 percent on every order placed within the next 30 days and will continue to offer free, contact-free delivery on all orders.
