Purina Pets for People Program
Since 1984, the Purina Pets For People Program has provided life-enriching benefits of pet ownership to Americans. Since its inception, the Purina Pets For People Program has donated more than $16 million dollars to participating humane shelters and matched thousands of shelter pets with owners.
SENIOR ADOPTION PROGRAM
The Senior Adoption Program provides the opportunity for senior citizens, aged 60 years and older, to adopt a pet for little or no cost. The program helps to reimburse shelters for the cost of spaying or neutering, vaccinations, and additional adoption fees. Nearly 300 shelters are involved in this particular program nationally.
ADOPTION KIT PROGRAM
The Adoption Kit Program distributes nearly 200,000 starter kits through approximately 200 shelters nationwide. The kits include important information on caring for a new pet, feeding recommendations based upon lifestage, a special issue of Pet Life magazine, a high value coupon for Purina brand pet foods and the opportunity to request special offers to help care for your pet.
VERY BEST PET NETWORK
The Very Best Pet Network is a partnership between Purina, the American Humane Association and Wal*Mart to connect shelter animals with new families. Participating shelters are paired with a Wal*Mart store, where the shelter will post pictures of adoptable pets. Participating shelters are also eligible to receive a grant to help fund their programs.
