Press release: Hill’s Pet Nutrition

Hill’s Pet Nutrition, a subsidiary of Colgate-Palmolive and a global leader in science-led pet nutrition, returns for the fifth consecutive year as a national sponsor of Clear The Shelters, NBCUniversal Local’s nationwide pet adoption and donation campaign. Clear The Shelters, which will be held during the month of August, has helped more than 700,000 pets find new homes since its 2015 inception.

As part of this year’s month-long Clear The Shelters, NBC and Telemundo owned and affiliated stations across the U.S. and Puerto Rico are partnering with animal shelters and rescue services in their communities to promote pet adoption and raise needed funds. This year’s campaign will again feature online donations to participating shelters or rescues during the campaign at the Clear the Shelters website.

To support Clear The Shelters, Hill’s Pet Nutrition will provide adoption kits to help new pet parents and their pets get a healthy start on their new life together. Kits containing starter bags of Hill’s science-led nutrition, coupons, pet-parenting tips and other supplies will be available at select shelters during the campaign.

“We are proud of our longstanding partnership with Hill’s Pet Nutrition and grateful for the meaningful support they provide Clear The Shelters and our shelter and rescue partners to help pets find new homes,” said Bruce Kallner, senior vice president of business development, NBCUniversal Local. “We look forward to working with our partners this August on another successful campaign and making a positive impact on animal welfare in communities across the nation..”

This year’s Clear The Shelters campaign coincides with the 20th anniversary of Hill’s Food, Shelter and Love program, which partners with shelters 365 days a year to provide premium nutrition for pets in need. The program has provided more than $300 million in pet food to more than 1,000 shelters and helped more than 12 million pets find new homes.

“At Hill’s, our mission is to enrich and lengthen the special relationship between people and their pets. We’re proud to return as the national sponsor of Clear The Shelters because it extends our mission to support shelter pets and the dedicated professionals who care for them,” said Nicki Baty, president of Hill’s Pet Nutrition US. “This year’s campaign comes at a critical time as animal welfare organizations across the country are experiencing a high volume of intakes. If you’re thinking about bringing a pet into your family, consider your local shelter as the first choice to find your new best friend.”
