Press release: ZIWI USA
If you ask any ZIWI employee what their favorite quarterly volunteering effort is, you shouldn’t be shocked to hear that it’s our annual day of volunteering at the Kansas City Pet Project’s Campus for Animal Care, here in the Kansas City metro area.
Each year, the ZIWI USA office takes the afternoon to head down to the shelter, arms full of goods to donate, and spirits eager to hop in and help.
This year, ZIWI USA brought over $500 worth of materials needed like leashes, paper towels, peanut butter, toys, hot dogs, trash bags and more. All of which will be used to replenish the constantly dwindling supply of goods, seeing as the shelter constantly runs as capacity, even with their incredible rehoming rates. Our team was able to participate in shelter duties like making and distributing treats, feline enrichment, sorting donations and general cleaning, to name a few.
ZIWI is proud to partner with and regularly support KC Pet Project, as they align with the pet brand’s mission of providing joy and peace of mind to pets and their guardians. In 2022, KCPP executed a 96 percent save rate, intaking 15,703 animals, and adopting out 10,725 making it the largest number of pets adopted in Kansas City’s history. On top of their sheltering operations, they provided 14,656 vet exams, and had a year over year increase of 17 percent in spay and neuter surgeries. They are doing incredible things for pet and the people in the KC community, and ZIWI is grateful to be able to support them in doing so.
ZIWI, the global leader and innovator in air-dried pet nutrition, was founded with a vision to bring joy and peace of mind to pets and their guardians.
