Today, the ASPCA received an in-kind donation from Stella & Chewy’s, premium nutritional pet food, for $530,000 worth of dog and cat food to assist pets and pet owners affected by the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. The ASPCA will distribute Stella & Chewy’s pet food donation of more than 800,000 meals at its regional food distribution centers in Miami, Los Angeles, New York City and Asheville, North Carolina. The trucks departed from the Stella & Chewy’s warehouse in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, with distribution to clients beginning this week.
“We know how special and strong the bond is between pet parents and their animals, and we are committed to bringing comfort and relief to those in need of an extra hand right now,” said Marc Hill, CEO of Stella & Chewy’s. “This donation is the biggest in our company’s 16-year history and we could not have partnered with a better organization than the ASPCA. Our employees take great pride in knowing the difference the donation will make in the lives of these animals across the country.”
Our distribution center in New York City received their shipment on Monday. A large truck delivered palettes of Stella & Chewy’s product, which will become lifesaving meals for NYC pets.
“Providing free pet food helps struggling communities in many ways. It certainly promotes the health and safety of vulnerable animals, but also makes it possible for families to count on the continual love and comfort of their pets, which is especially valuable during this crisis,” said Matt Bershadker, ASPCA president and CEO. “We’re grateful for Stella & Chewy’s generous food donation, which will help thousands of dogs, cats, and people in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, and Asheville.”
We thank Stella & Chewy’s for their kind pet food donation and for helping feed pets impacted by COVID-19.
