Help Hearty Pet, Help the South!
In the midst of all the tragedy that we've seen in the Southern states as a result of the flooding and tornadoes, we've also seen stories of great hope and giving. In an effort to aid the animal shelters and organizations that have been affected in the South, Hearty Pet has pledged to donate 1,500 lbs of food, split evenly between three different shelters/rescues that were affected by the tornadoes. The food will be a combination of cat and dog food. The donations will be shipped out on June 14th.
So how can you help? Hearty Pet wants YOU to vote to decide which shelters will benefit. Hearty Pet has picked seven groups and want you to ultimately decide which three groups will receive the donations.
The voting will take place on Hearty Pet's Facebook page via a voting application. You can only vote once, so make sure to get your friends to "like" Hearty Pet on Facebook and cast their votes as well! Every vote will count and it will help your favorite rescues receive an amazing donation!
If you'd like to participate, voting starts June 1st and ends June 13th.
