Chuck & Don’s Raises $14,500 for Pet Rescue Group

Chuck & Don’s Pet Food Outlet, a 13-store pet specialty chain based in Minnesota, raised a total of $14,841 through its annual Chuck & Don’s Holiday Paw Print fund-raising campaign. The 2007 beneficiary was Homes for All Pets Coalition, a group of at least 14 animal rescue and shelter groups throughout Minnesota.

During the fundraiser, customers donated $11,873, and the company added a 25 percent match. Customers filled out palm-sized paw prints for a donation of $1 or more. Those paw prints then were displayed in the windows of the pet stores throughout the holiday season.

“We exceeded our goal and we’re absolutely thrilled with the success of our Holiday Paw Print fundraiser,” said Dana Andresen, director of operations for the chain. “Chuck & Don’s has always been committed to helping homeless pets through programs such as Pet Fix. Spay/neuter programs save lives and will help bring an end to the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets.”

Proceeds of the fundraiser will be used for the Pet Fix program that provides no- and low-cost spay/neuter surgeries.

It's a great thin to see so many people step up and by doing something small can add up to something so big.
