Mars Petcare helps nearly 400 pets find fur-ever homes

Mars Petcare helps nearly 400 pets find fur-ever homes

As the dog days of summer wrap up, nearly 400 Middle Tennessee dogs and cats found their way to new homes as Mars Petcare sponsored a fee-free adoption weekend in the greater Nashville area. On August 26 and 27, Mars Petcare covered the adoption fees for any furry friends adopted at Metro Animal Care and Control, Nashville Humane Association and Williamson County Animal Center.

Nashville families sure took advantage of the opportunity: throughout the event, there was a pet finding a new home every 2.2 minutes the doors were open – that’s a lot of new homes! To help these families start off on the right foot with their new pet, every family who adopted a pet also got to take home a ”wag bag” filled with pet food and treats.

Finding ways to help homeless pets find families is just the start, as Franklin-based Mars Petcare kicks off its BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ program in its hometown. The company is aiming to work with partners to make the community more pet-friendly with comfortable shelters, loving homes, responsible owners, welcoming places and pet-friendly policies.

With hundreds of new loving homes found with the adoption weekend, Mars Petcare is investing $150,000 into the Nashville area to help support more spay-neuter programs, continue to refresh and refurbish local shelters, educate area families about responsible pet ownership and enhance outdoor play places. Looks like we’ll all be seeing a few more furry faces around the area – and what a welcome addition they’ll be!
