Florida-based Caru Pet Foods recently donated 5,700 pounds of their Natural Stews to six Chicago area rescues and animal care facilities: Tender Loving Care, Chicago Anti-Cruelty Society, K9 4 Keeps, Chicago Canine Rescue, Pet Project Rescue, and One Tail At A Time.
And the sharing didn’t stop there. One Tail At A Time, allocated a large portion of their Caru Natural Stews to the local Animal Care & Control; and Project Rescue Chicago shared with Animal Welfare League’s Chicago intake facility and Be Fido’s Friend.
Not only does this generous stock of donated product help feed animals currently awaiting homes, it will help feed future pets in need, too. That’s because Caru’s Natural Stews are packaged in Tetra Pak packaging, making it shelf stable for up to two years!
Additionally, its compact, rectangular shape makes stacking and storing easy − perfect for facilities and organizations with limited storage.
This isn’t the first time the pet industry newcomer has taken a special interest in caring for animals waiting for their forever homes. In July, the brand donated $1,500 worth of stews (600 pounds) to It’s A Pittie Rescue as a part of Daily Kibble’s rescue initiative.
With more than 6,000 pounds of product, worth more than $40,000 in retail value, donated to-date in its first year of business, “Caru is really living up to it’s name, which means ‘to love’ in Welsh,” comments Caru CEO and Co-Founder Adrian Pettyan.
The company looks forward to supporting other rescues and shelters in the future.
