Purina Gives Back
Nestlé Purina’s Pets for People initiative has been supporting animal welfare organizations since 1984. In 2009, Nestlé Purina provided over $15 million in support to organizations nationally. By supporting our partners in animal welfare, Nestlé Purina helps provide care and adoption for more than 1.5 million pets annually.
Nestlé Purina is the premier sponsor of Adopt-a-Pet.com, the country’s largest non-profit website dedicated to placing homeless pets in permanent homes. Adopt-a-Pet.com helps 8,000 (and growing!) animal welfare organizations across North America find homes for homeless animals. To search for your new “best friend,” visit www.adoptapet.com.
Nestlé Purina is the premier sponsor of Delta Society®, the leading international resource for the human-animal bond. Delta Society® has been the force to validate the important role of animals for people's health and well-being by promoting the results of research to the media and health and human services organizations. Purina is now joined with Delta Society® to help interested Nestlé Purina employees to become a Delta Society® Pet Partner. Pet Partners Program is the program of Delta Society which enables pet owner volunteers to provide services to people in their own communities while spending quality time with their pets. Currently there are 16 Nestlé Purina St. Louis Pet Partner Teams and more to come.
In the aftermath of recent major hurricanes and floods, Nestlé Purina® Pets for People has donated Nestlé Purina brand dog and cat foods and litter to various organizations such as Humane Societies, animal clinics, and other relief agencies. Whenever possible, we will continue to provide for animal welfare organizations in need. A “disaster form” is available on line for organizations that are registered with Nestlé Purina® Pets for People. For more information go to www.petsforpeople.com.
