Gott, Matrix Partners Show Support for Disadvantaged Pet Owners

Press release: Matrix Partners

During the extreme cold and snowy conditions in Chicago this past February, Gott Pet Products, owner of pet brands Charlee Bear dog treats and Hound & Gatos pet foods, and Matrix Partners, a Chicago-based pet products marketing firm, stepped up to help pet owners in need. Their efforts included a generous cash contribution and thousands of Charlee Bear dog treats donated to Paw Salvation, Inc., a nonprofit organization in Chicago dedicated to helping local homeless and disadvantaged pet owners take care of their pets.

“As a company committed to the pet products industry, we’re on a mission to help those less fortunate than us keep their pets healthy and safe,” said Don Tomala, president of Matrix Partners. “We know that homeless and financially challenged households need their pets more than ever, and we will be aligning with similar organizations like Paw Salvation in 2021 to help achieve our mutual goals.”

“We support the mission of Matrix Partners and Paw Salvation, and will continue to support them in their quest to help needy pet parents in these extremely difficult times,” commented Rob Cadenhead, general manager of Milwaukee-based Gott Pet Products. “Both Charlee Bear and Hound & Gatos are brands that can and will bring some happiness and health into the lives of those currently struggling.”

“I just want to say thank you to both the Matrix Partners team and the generous folks at Gott Pet Products,” added Peter Elueze, founder of Paw Salvation. “The Charlee Bear treats delivered a lot of smiles to the pet owners we serve, as well as their pets. It was a hard winter for all of them, and the timing of this contribution was perfect. I am looking forward to more programs with Matrix Partners and Gott Pet Products.”
