2020 has been an interesting year, full of obstacles. We’ve been pushing through to help find ways to better serve our customers (and their humans), as well as our friends in the pet rescue community. While we have not been able to hold our large scale events in person, which work as fundraisers for local rescue groups, we’ve found other ways to benefit, raise money and awareness for these groups instead. This year, we will not be able to hold our annual Columbia Pet Expo in person, but we do have some great events happening every weekend in October at our Columbia shop. What’s more, is that our Columbia store team has been working on special treats each week that all of the sales go towards our two groups this month – CMHS and The Spay Neuter Project/No Kill Columbia. These two groups would regularly be the beneficiaries of the Columbia Pet Expo.
Central Missouri Humane Society (CMHS) – In continuous operation since 1943, the Central Missouri Humane Society promotes the well-being of companion animals – pets that enrich the lives of the people who love them. CMHS envisions a time when no mid-Missouri pet is homeless, abused or neglected. They can be found at 616 Big Bear Blvd. Columbia, MO 65202 or reached at 573-443-7387. Visit their site to learn more, and see adoptable pets!
The Spay Neuter Project/No Kill Columbia – Our vision for Columbia and Mid Missouri is to be a “No-Kill” region – where our pets are not killed simply because they are homeless. In order to decrease the deaths, we must decrease the births. Our mission is to make high quality spay/neuter services and life saving vaccines affordable and accessible for ALL pet owners. By removing financial barriers, we are reducing the unplanned and homeless pet population, and helping pet owners keep their pets happy and healthy, and families whole. Visit their site for more information or how you can get involved!
As with every month, all proceeds from the sales of Spotlight Pawprint Treats from all 17 Treats Unleashed locations, as well as the cash donations at our registers are collected and donated to the featured groups or group of the month. Thank you to CMHS and The Spay Neuter Project for all that you do for pets in the Mid-Missouri area!
