Blue Buffalo Donates Pet Food to Stray Rescue of St. Louis
As part of new partnership agreement, Stray Rescue will receive premium food for dogs and cats waiting for adoption
St. Louis, Mo. – February 15, 2017 – Stray Rescue of St. Louis, along with Blue Buffalo, announced that the nation's leading natural pet food company will be the official pet food sponsor for Stray Rescue of St. Louis for the next three years. With more than 100 animals at the shelter at any given time, the two organizations will work together on programs that communicate how adopted animals can make the best friends.
“As a company of pet lovers that is solely focused on the well-being of dogs and cats, Blue Buffalo is proud to partner with Stray Rescue of St. Louis,” said David Petrie, President of Blue Buffalo Foundation. “It is our privilege to provide BLUE dog and cat food for the terrific pets at Stray Rescue that are waiting for a loving, forever home.”
With millions of homeless pets in shelters across the country, the company shows its support for orphan dogs and cats through local and national adoption programs throughout the year.
Stray Rescue’s Founder, Randy Grim, is thrilled with the partnership. “The animals we rescue come from deplorable situations and are forced to scrounge for food out on the streets. It makes me feel so good that once they’re in the loving arms of Stray Rescue, they’ll be fed high quality, nutritious food that is a vital component of their recovery and rehabilitation.
“We’re incredibly appreciative of Blue Buffalo for their partnership and shared loved of the abused and neglected animals of our city.”
By partnering with Stray Rescue to provide free, nutritious pet food for shelter animals, Blue Buffalo will extend the rescue organization’s ability to support its lifesaving efforts in the St. Louis community.
