Petcurean Provides Relief to Displaced Animals Affected by Hurricane Dorian
Petcurean donates 17,000 pounds of pet food in the Bahamas to animal rescues in need
Chilliwack, B.C. (September 24, 2019) – Petcurean, a leading Canadian manufacturer of premium pet food is donating 17,000 pounds of dog and cat food to the Bahamas Humane Society in Nassau, which has taken in animals from shelters and residents in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. The storm first hit on September 1, and completely devastated the Bahamas, leaving 60 percent of homes destroyed and tens of thousands in need of urgent disaster relief. In addition to the Bahamas, the Category 5 storm also severely impacted Florida, both Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia.
To support the Bahamian communities as they begin recovering and rebuilding from the natural disaster, Petcurean is sending a pet food donation. The 17,000 pounds of cat and dog food is being donated in conjunction with Petcurean’s distribution partners, Southeast Pet and Phillips Pet Food.
It’s been reported that Hurricane Dorian is one of the greatest national crises to hit the Bahamas and Petcurean hopes this food donation will bring some relief to the local shelter as it aims to take in as many displaced animals as they can, and for families who are struggling to feed their furry family members in the midst of this crisis.
“The damage that this storm has caused is unimaginable, and we hope to provide even the smallest bit of relief, comfort, and hope for the families and precious pets affected by Hurricane Dorian,” says Christine Mallier, PR & Community Relations Manager at Petcurean. “As the rebuilding begins, we want to do what we can to support the local animal shelters that have no doubt been inundated with displaced animals waiting to be reunited with their families.”
Petcurean is committed to helping pets and pet parents that are impacted by natural disasters and supporting the incredible animal rescue groups that work tirelessly to assist animals in need. This year, Petcurean has made 193 donations so far, with a total of more than 92,600 pounds of food donated in 2019 to-date.
