Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food, maker of premium pet food, recently donated 3,854 pounds of its nutritious pet food to help feed rescue animals at the Humane Society of Scott County (HSSC) in Davenport, Iowa. The donation is part of the pet food company’s Fill A Bowl… Feed A Soul (FABFAS) program, a national campaign targeting the donation of 1 million meals to shelter pets annually.
“When searching for a rescue organization to assist, we often turn to our dedicated independent pet specialty retailers to help identify animal shelters or food banks in their neighborhood,” said Jeanne Blandford, director of Marketing for Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food. “In this case, we reached out to Theisen’s Davenport store and manager Jim Gable.”
“With the growth and success of our stores, we feel the need to regularly give back to the communities we serve. We are privileged to work with and have a close relationship with many great organizations such as the Humane Society of Scott County,” Gbale said. “We are fortunate to partner with and offer quality vendors like Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food. We were happy to get such a generous donation that we could deliver to one of our community partners. We look forward to continuing to serve and work with our community.”
“Not only did Theisen’s direct us to the Humane Society of Scott County, but because HSSC is a smaller rescue without a loading dock, Theisen’s accepted the nearly two tons of pet food at their Davenport store and then delivered it directly to the shelter.” Blandford added. “They used their own staff and volunteers. That shows true commitment to the dogs, cats and the Davenport community as a whole!”
“We cannot thank Chicken Soup for the Soul Pet Food enough for selecting the Humane Society of Scott County for this donation of premium dog and cat food,” said Pamela Arndt, executive director of the Humane Society of Scott County. “Their donation of cat food came at the perfect time as our supply was getting low. The donation of grain free dog food is fabulous as we are seeing our dogs responding better on grain free food!”
