Pet Food Express Partners with 120+ Shelters and Rescues to Find Homes for 5,000 Rescue Animals During September

OAKLAND, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Today, Pet Food Express, a leading retailer and trusted partner in pet health, kicks off its 12th annual Pet Fair to find forever homes for 5,000 California rescue animals. From September 1-30, Pet Food Express will partner with over 120 rescues and shelters throughout the state to offer virtual and in-person pet adoptions, and host special pet-centric events in all 64 stores, including vendor meet and greets and fresh food sampling from top brands like Stella and Chewy’s, Primal, and Nutrisource. In addition, September 24 and 25 mark the big Pet Fair weekend with Pet Adoption Extravaganza events in all stores and live virtual events such as educational seminars led by experts on topics like pet anxiety, dog training, and CBD.

“We’re really excited to host the Pet Food Express Pet Fair virtually and in-person again this year!” said Mike Murray, director of community relations for Pet Food Express. “A big benefit that we saw last year was in the reach we can achieve through an online platform. It not only supports a wider range of incredible rescues and shelters to find loving homes for more animals in need, but also gives pet parents anywhere in the US, even globally, the opportunity to educate themselves with new knowledge from experts. During the 2021 Pet Food Express Pet Fair, new homes were found for 5,662 animals which resulted in Pet Food Express distributing $141,550 in donations to participating rescues and shelters!”

Throughout September, potential adopters can use Pet Food Express’ Find a Friend search option to filter for location, breed, or even age as they scroll through and learn about adoptable animals from over 120 California-based shelters and rescues. Those who adopt receive a special 20% off coupon for Pet Food Express as a part of the 20/20 program. Once the coupon is redeemed, the adopting organization receives a $20 donation from Pet Food Express. In 2021, the 20/20 program donated over $400,000 to rescues and shelters.

SEOUL, South Korea /PRNewswire/ — Petnow Inc. announced that it is presenting the world’s first cat biometric recognition service added to the Petnow app at CES 2023.

Dr. Ken Daehyun Pak, the co-founder of Petnow also quoted, “We have been hearing from customers domestically and internationally to add a cat identification function, and we are proud to announce the cat biometric recognition with 99% accuracy. We have cooperated with the largest Korean mobile carrier, SK Telecom, to introduce the dog version of ‘Amber Alert’ in South Korea, and we hope that we will provide more use cases for users.”

With the release of the app to the U.S. and South Korea, Jesse wished to highlight the following:

  • The Petnow app is provided for free of charge, and pet households with house cats and/or dogs can try the pain-free microchip alternative right now.
  • Petnow is looking for partnerships with pet related businesses and organizations, including but not limited to insurance companies, government departments, vet chains, and pet shelter networks.
  • The company has been selected as Google for Startups Accelerator cohort of this year, to further enhance the app and other capabilities.

KIA AMERICA HELPS MORE THAN 22,000 SHELTER ANIMALS FIND FOREVER HOMES

Kia America announced that 22,422 shelter animals nationwide have been placed in their forever homes thanks to the brand’s year-long partnership with The Petfinder Foundation.

  • Kia donated $500,000 to The Petfinder Foundation to help shelter animals find their forever homes
  • Kia’s year-long partnership with The Petfinder Foundation was a component of the creative launch campaign for the all-electric Kia EV6

IRVINE, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — Kia America announced that 22,422 shelter animals nationwide have been placed in their forever homes thanks to the brand’s year-long partnership with The Petfinder Foundation. Launched in February 2022 as part of Kia’s Super Bowl ad starring “Robo Dog,” Kia’s $500,000 donation helped cover adoption costs.

Kia America Helps More Than 22,000 Shelter Animals Find Forever Homes

“Kia is dedicated to giving back and helping more than 22,000 shelter animals find new homes is proof that initiatives like this work and improve local communities, in this instance by easing the burden of overcrowding on local animal shelters nationwide,” said Russell Wager, vice president, marketing, Kia America.

In a first for the brand, Kia also developed a series of NFTs based on “Robo Dog”, the robot puppy and star of Kia’s Super Bowl spot for the all-electric Kia EV6. In addition to making 10,000 NFTs available for free, the brand also released an additional 10,000 generative NFTs. These unique designs were available for purchase with 90-percent of all primary sales proceeds benefiting The Petfinder Foundation to help animals in need find their forever homes. In addition, a 10-percent royalty was written into the smart contract on the blockchain, so whenever a Robo Dog NFT across the series was resold on a participating secondary market, The Petfinder Foundation once again benefitted. Sales of Kia’s NFTs amounted to an additional $100,000 donation for The Petfinder Foundation.

“We are so honored to partner with Kia America. Their generous donation helped countless animals find loving and forever homes in 2022,” said Toni Morgan, Executive Director, The Petfinder Foundation.

Kia’s Accelerate The Good charitable initiative has donated more than $14 million to various causes since 2019. Most recently, Kia announced a minimum donation of $1 million1 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, marking the third act of giving to St. Jude’s this year. Previous donations to the organization were announced as part of the 10 millionth Kia vehicle sold in the U.S., and again as part of the groundbreaking announcement for a new assembly plant in the state of Georgia.
