Press release: ZIWI
ZIWI USA Inc. is continuing its giving campaign by donating several pallets of pet food to a local Kansas City pet shelter.
ZIWI, which recently partnered with Chiefs defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi to cover all dog adoption fees at the Kansas City Pet Project this past February, is continuing its support by donating several pallets of dog and cat food for pets waiting for adoption at the shelter. The donation included a total of seven pallets of food for a total of nearly 500 cases of food.
Andrew Tippin, ZIWI’s brand and relationship manager, said the donation speaks to the overall values held by the company. “As ZIWI continues to grow, we want to ensure our New Zealand values are reflected in our efforts with the local pet community as well. Not only do we seek to provide the best in nutrition for pets worldwide, we also strive to be stewards of our local neighborhoods.”
Tori Fugate, chief communications officer of Kansas City Pet Project, gave thanks for ZIWI’s continued partnership with the shelter. “KC Pet Project is so appreciative of our amazing partnership with ZIWI. From donations of much-needed food for the hundreds of pets in our care, to helping dogs get adopted to new families, it’s through partnerships like ours with ZIWI Pets that we’re able to save lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
