Seattle, Sept. 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GreaterGood.org, a national non-profit benefitting people, pets and the planet, receives a generous $85,000 grant from PetSmart Charities, the leading funder of animal welfare in North America, to help support the hundreds of pets affected by Hurricane Dorian.
“We are very grateful for the support PetSmart Charities is contributing so we are able to provide critical animal supplies to the hundreds of homeless and displaced pets of Hurricane Dorian,” said Liz Baker, CEO of GreaterGood.org.
This donation will be used for critical animal care supplies supporting emergency temporary animal sheltering as well as animal search and rescue teams. The funding also provided a necessary water pump for the Humane Society of Grand Bahama. Additionally, Rescue Bank, a Signature Program of GreaterGood.org, is providing more than 534,000 pounds of pet food.
“The devastation from Hurricane Dorian is immense, and we know the need for support of recovery and relief efforts is equally as great,” said Deborah Turcott, acting president of PetSmart Charities. “With the support of our generous donors, it is our hope this funding supports the many needs of affected pets and helps reunite displaced pets and families throughout the southeastern U.S. and the Bahamas.”
