Pet Supplies Plus Donates $25,000 to Best Friends Animal Society

Pet Supplies Plus recently donated $25,000 to Best Friends Animal Society through the sales of toys from the 2023 summer and holiday seasons. As a leading animal welfare organization working to end the killing of cats and dogs in America’s shelters by 2025, Best Friends Animal Society is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets and works collaboratively with a network of more than 4,700 animal welfare and shelter partners and community members nationwide.

For the fourth consecutive year, Pet Supplies Plus partnered with Best Friends to support their mission of making every shelter and community no-kill by 2025. The animal welfare organization received 10 percent of proceeds from the sale of ice cream plush toys sold during the 2023 summer months and giraffe, wolf and red panda plush toys sold during the 2023 holiday season at Pet Supplies Plus. With each purchase of these toys, neighbors were supporting the organization’s mission and as a result, $25,000 was donated to help animals across the nation.

“Each individual at our company, from the leadership team to every store team member, is dedicated to caring for and ensuring the well-being of all animals,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus. “We’re honored to extend our partnership with Best Friends Animal Society for the fourth year in a row, united in our goal to bring comfort and support to sheltered animals across the country.”

In addition to running life-saving programs in Los Angeles, Houston, New York City, Northwest Arkansas and Salt Lake City, the organization operates the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals, the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, in Kanab, UT. As a pioneer in the no-kill movement, Best Friends has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from an estimated 2 million to around 415,000.

“For the past four years, Pet Supplies Plus has raised funds for us through a fun and innovative campaign,” said Candi Maciel, Director of Corporate Partnerships at Best Friends Animal Society. “The Charity Plush campaign has consistently engaged consumers and allowed Pet Supplies Plus to be involved in the critical lifesaving work we are doing to Save Them All. We look forward to what fun next year will bring!”
