Hurricane Florence and the related weather that has hit North Carolina, South Carolina and the Eastern seaboard is causing widespread devastation and impacting the lives of millions of Americans and their pets. In an effort to offer relief Tuffy’s Pet Foods, makers of NutriSource, Pure Vita and Natural Planet pet foods has launched an initiative that will provide aid to pet parents across affected areas.
A GoFundMe page is being established for others who wish to pledge their support to the pets and pet owners who will be severely challenged by Hurricane Florence. The page is https://www.gofundme.com/pxf4a-hurricane-florence-relief or you can link to it via the NutriSource website at www.nutrisourcepetfoods.com/hurricaneflorence
In a statement released Friday, Charlie Nelson, part of the family of ownership shared that one of the primary values of the company and his family is to help others in need. “Like many of you I have been following the reports and pictures as the storm has impacted the U.S. Given the challenges we saw firsthand during our efforts to offer assistance in Texas and Florida last year we want to make every effort to be rapid in our response to help ensure the timely delivery of assistance. I can share with you that we will be making a monetary donation to get the GoFundMe page off to a healthy start and will also make pet food donations to assist pet owners and their pets that have been impacted or displaced due to Hurricane Florence.”
Tuffy’s will be reaching out to its’ vendors, distributors, retailers and other contacts in an effort to deliver even further aid to those in need. “More than just a company value, it is the right thing to do – I ask that anyone who can help support the pet parents and pets hurt by this disaster reach out to lend any assistance they can” said Nelson.
Chase Rasmussen, VP of Sales & Marketing at Tuffy’s shared that efforts to help are ongoing and that the logistics of getting assistance directly to those in need are already being addressed.
