Helping Pets Displaced by the Recent Storms and Tornados
Another reason why I love where I work!
The official statement:
“P&G has donated nearly 12 tons of dog and cat food to the help the animals in Arkansas and Alabama that were displaced by the recent tornadoes. The food was distributed to several locations throughout the region to help save the lives of the many dogs and cats that were affected. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine if further assistance is needed.”
Some stuff that happened behind-the-scenes:
When asked to help, our closest distributor immediately worked out a plan to interrupt schedule product shipments so that they could get the product donation shipped to where it was needed. They also donated their time to do it.
We’ve already heard from some of the rescue groups located in the tornado-stressed areas—they posted on the Iams Facebook wall that they’ve received much-needed Iams food to help feed displaced dogs and cats.
I’m so glad we were able to get food where it was needed so quickly!
