$9000 in 9 Weeks JFFD Summer Charity Giveaway


Just Food For Dogs presents their Summer Charity Giveaway where $1,000 cash will be donated each week to selected charities benefitting pets as chosen by top local pet care providers. The giveaway will kick off on July 8 and continue for the subsequent nine weeks thereafter.

The cash amount of $9,000 will be displayed everyday at Just Food For Dogs, and customers can freely participate just by purchasing a package of dog food. For each pack of food purchased, they will get to take $1 from the display and put it in the plexi-glass box of the week to benefit the charity of the week.

Just Food For Dogs invited nine doctors to participate in the giveaway by selecting the pet charity of their choice where $1,000 will be donated in their name. The doctors of choice are Board Certified Specialists from Oncologists to Dermatologists, but they all have one combining trait—a love for animals.

Each week a card providing information on the doctor and charity of the week will be displayed next to the plexi-glass box. For customers that want to support a specific cause, Just Food For Dogs recommends loading up on dog food for that promoted week so their preferred charity will benefit.

To celebrate the end of the giveaway, an open house will take place August 26 where Just Food For Dogs will hand out all of the checks to the various charities. The celebration will include a BBQ cookout with complimentary food and refreshments.
