As we continue to struggle amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, one thing is clear: Many of us are turning to pets to help us endure this challenging time in history.
According to various news stories, as most of us still stuck at home, the demand for adopting or fostering pets, has risen worldwide. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, people have sought animal companionship to tackle feelings of isolation and anxiety and most have confirmed that having a pet has been supportive to their mental health.
Studies have shown, that owning animals may encourage physical activity and research also suggests that pets may be beneficial for mental health and wellbeing due to attachment to or companionship provided by the animal.
That is why Mars Petcare is inviting pet parents to do something special for our furry friends in need as they purchase treats for their own. From August 26 till August 28, Feed A Friend, Fill The Bowl will let you feed a furry friend in need when you purchase treats for your own furry friend!
Simply purchase any products from the PEDIGREE Official Store on Shopee and 10% of purchases will be donated as meals to shelter pets at PAWSsion Project Foundation Inc.
PAWSsion Project Foundation Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of dogs in distress. They currently house more than 300 cats and dogs in their Bulacan and Bacolod shelters. “At Mars Petcare we believe in making it a better world for pets and that ‘every pet deserves a better world’, and this could not be truer for those who do not have forever homes yet.
Through the PEDIGREE Official Store’s Feed a Friend, Fill the Bowl program, we hope that as you purchase nutritious meals and treats for your own furry friend, that help can be extended to furry friends in need too,” said Phua Fui Ching, Mars Petcare Southeast Asia Pet Nutrition D-Commerce Director.
