Press release: High Hopes for Pets
High Hopes for Pets, the mission-driven dog treats and food company founded by animal lovers to help homeless pets, today announced it is doubling the donation percentage of every online sale from 3.5% to 7% through December 31, with proceeds benefiting The High Hopes for Pets Foundation.
The love and trust that sits at the heart of all pet relationships is mirrored in High Hopes’ mission to provide care and comfort to homeless pets. Since its founding in 2010, High Hopes has donated a percentage of every sale directly to its not-for-profit foundation. To date, the Foundation has awarded over $70,000 in grants, donated 50,000 pounds of food and helped find homes for more than 300 pets. During the holidays, High Hopes’ mission carries extra weight, which is why the company is embracing the joy of the season and doubling the funds directed to its foundation through year’s end.
“Every animal deserves a full belly and a warm place to rest until they find their forever home,” said Paula Etchison, founder of High Hopes for Pets. “The giving spirit of the holidays should extend to helping them, too. I founded High Hopes with the mission to support organizations that care for animals – that love and commitment are baked into the core of our business and every one of our treats. This holiday season, we’re doubling down on that mission. Now, dog owners can give their own four-legged friends nutritious, delicious food and treats while spreading joy by supporting homeless pets in the process.”
The High Hopes for Pets Foundation was founded alongside High Hopes as an independent not-for-profit organization serving those dedicated to the prevention of pet homelessness. Supported by the company’s sales and profits, the Foundation partners with local animal shelter and rescue groups across the United States to fund urgent pet care needs, such as housing, food and vet bills, along with adopt-a-thons and training programs aimed at responsible pet ownership.
