Blue Buffalo Home 4 the Holidays Campaign Concludes With 1,373,470 Animals Adopted
January 14, 2016 • Rescue
With the holidays coming to a close, 1,373,470 animals now have a new place to call home thanks to the efforts of Blue Buffalo (Nasdaq:BUFF) and the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Through their partnership in the Home 4 the Holidays campaign and in conjunction with over 4,000 participating shelters, over one million dogs and cats have been given a second chance at a loving home.
In celebration of the millionth pet adopted, the adopting family will be gifted a one-year supply of Blue Buffalo products for their new pet, and the participating shelter will receive 2,500 pounds of food to support future animals. In December of 2015, the millionth pet came from St. Sophia’s Forgotten Felines based in Addison, Illinois and the lucky cat Telly has found her forever home. Having arrived at St. Sophia’s with a large abdominal hernia, Telly required extensive surgery before she was ready for adoption. Nearing her one-year anniversary with St. Sophia’s, a couple who had just lost their 16-year-old cat inquired about adopting Telly, and she was soon with her new pet parents.
