Sunbury, Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets has launched its 14th annual Paws for Pets program, a company-wide initiative that collects donations for local animal shelters and rescue organizations.
Through the end of May, customers can round up or give $1, $3, $5 or $10 donations at the register or self-checkout. Additionally, customers can give online at the retailer’s website. All contributions will benefit local animal shelters and rescue organizations chosen by each store team.
Weis Markets will also be hosting a series of sweepstakes in partnership with pet supply brands in which customers can win a $150 gift card to Weis Markets.
The sponsoring brand will match with a $150 donation to the pet shelter or rescue organization of the winner’s choice. Sponsors include Nestle Purina, Mars PetCare, I and Love and You, Clorox, Rachael Ray Nutrish and Blue Buffalo.
“Our Paws for Pets program has generated more than $2.8 million in donations for local pet shelters in the communities where we operate over the past 14 years,” said Ron Bonacci, Weis Markets’ VP of advertising and marketing. “We are grateful for our vendor partners, our associates and the generous customers whose donations help improve the lives of homeless pets at nearly 120 local animal shelters throughout the communities we serve.”
