Nutrience Sponsors the Ontario SPCA Friends For Life! Walk™ WeekendAugust 5, 2014
Changing Animals’ Lives One Step at a Time!
Montreal, Canada – August 4, 2014 – Nutrience, a premium family-owned pet food brand, is proud to be the 2014 sponsor of the 3rd annual Ontario SPCA Friends for Life! Walk™.
On the weekend of September 20-21st, people and pets alike will come together in 18 communities across Ontario to help raise funds and awareness for the protection and care of animals across the province. With everyone’s support, this year’s event is looking to surpass last year’s fundraising total of $375,000 raised. Each event includes a fundraising walk and lots of fun activities for walkers and their four-legged friends.
“We’re happy to be a part of such a great event,” said Warren House, Brand Manager for Nutrience. “Not only will it help raise awareness and much needed funds for animals in need, it’s also a great excuse to get outdoors and get active with your pet”.
The Friends for Life! Walk™ is not the first time Nutrience has lent their support to the Ontario SPCA and their ongoing efforts. In 2012, Rolf C. Hagen, parent company of Nutrience, donated over $50,000 in food and supplies and provided funding for a Rescue and Relief Trailer which has facilitated numerous animal rescue missions since hitting the road.
“Without the support of animal lovers across the province and corporate sponsors like Nutrience, the Ontario SPCA cannot help animals in need,” says Marc Ralsky, Director of Community and Donor Development for the Ontario SPCA. “It’s that simple: walking together, we can change the lives of animals across the province.”
