Pet Supermarket Unleashes Powerful Support for Military Working Canines During Annual Fundraiser for the United States War Dogs Association

Pet Supermarket, a specialty pet supply retailer with more than 225 locations across the U.S. Southeast, proudly welcomes the return of its annual Lend A Paw: War Dogs fundraiser. This year’s fundraiser, running from Thursday, June 27, to Sunday, July 28, invites customers to join Pet Supermarket in supporting the vital programs of The United States War Dogs Association.

Now in its ninth year, the Lend A Paw: War Dogs fundraiser continues to further Pet Supermarket and The United States War Dogs Association’s joint commitment to supporting America’s canine heroes. At all Pet Supermarket locations, visitors are invited to participate in the patriotic festivities by making a monetary donation of their choice at checkout, with the entirety of proceeds benefiting The United States War Dogs Association. Customers who donate $5 or more will have the opportunity to be entered into a raffle to win exclusive merchandise from The United States War Dogs Association that showcases their support with pride.

“We are thrilled to continue our tradition of championing the U.S. War Dogs Association,” said Rich Tannenbaum, Pet Supermarket CEO. “Each year, our associates and community members give back to these incredible animals and their handlers who serve our country with bravery and dedication. We eagerly await joining forces with the U.S. War Dogs Association once more to express our heartfelt gratitude for their remarkable sacrifice.”

Starting in 2016, Pet Supermarket has raised more than $1.3 million for military working canines and their handlers. With the donations, The United States War Dogs Association has advanced its efforts to secure caretaking supplies for dogs on active duty, provide retired dogs with essential medications, help veteran dogs find loving homes, ensure that fallen canine soldiers are properly memorialized and educate the public about military canines.

“Thanks to Pet Supermarket’s incredible customers, U.S. War Dogs is able to continue its vital mission of supporting our nation’s military working dogs – both in active duty and during retirement,” said Chris Willingham, President of The United States War Dogs Association. “We are excited to see this year’s campaign get started and thank everyone who chooses to donate to our cause over throughout the next few weeks.”
