How Hill’s Pet Nutrition is responding to the COVID-19 crisis
Even as we stay apart, there has never been a better time to work together. It has been inspiring to see how animal shelters, veterinary professionals and communities at large have gone out of their way to care for pets during this uncertain time. As a global pet food company, we want to support them in kind.
For animal shelters in need of support:
Through our Food, Shelter & Love program, Disaster Relief Network and in conjunction with our animal welfare partners, we are donating pet food to pantry partners, shelters, and other non-profit partners who are caring for pets.
We have also partnered with The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement to provide more than $400,000 in financial grants to shelters impacted by COVID-19.
Grants will be awarded by August 31, 2020.
If you are a shelter in need of nutritional assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are all in this together, and we will do our best to help.
WANT TO HELP YOUR LOCAL SHELTER?
In these challenging times, one of the simplest and most effective ways to support your local shelters is by making a monetary donation. Use our convenient locator tool to find a shelter in your community and donate direct.
Now more than ever, shelters need the help of selfless pet lovers willing to foster shelter pets from home. Join us as we Stay Home & Foster to support pets who need a home — whether temporarily, or forever.
For veterinary professionals:
We are working to serve your clinic within governmental guidelines, and to minimize disruptions to your supply chain or deliveries.
We are also happy to adjust to your needs, be it updated hours, curbside pickup, or through one of our home delivery services designed exclusively for veterinary clinics. Reach out to your territory manager for more information.
Since COVID-19 has affected so many veterinary professionals, we’ve partnered with the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) and the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) to launch a $200,000 COVID-19 Disaster Relief Grant program for veterinary technicians, nurses and veterinary.
For concerned pet parents:
We know you have questions, so we want to be here with answers. Below, you’ll find several applicable resources that can help you make the most of social distancing with your pet.
The best way for everyone to help is by staying home and staying healthy, all while staying informed with up-to-date information from the World Health Organization.
