There are so many reasons to be thankful for our pets. Here are some of the many reasons people are grateful for their dogs this year.
Not only are we thankful for our pets, but we know the important role pets play in our lives. That’s why Purina is committed to keeping pets and people together.
Purina knows pets and people are better together and we recognize the important role dogs play in our lives. We believe it’s important to thank dogs for the comfort, companionship and joy they give us, which is why our commitment to pets and people goes beyond the food in their bowls. See how:
Because only 10 percent of domestic violence shelters allow pets, as many as 48 percent of victims delay leaving their abuser. To help change this, Purina partnered with RedRover to create the Purple Leash Project. Through the Purple Leash Project, we’re working to create more pet-friendly domestic violence shelters across the country, so people and pets can escape together and heal together.
Tony LaRussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) Pets & Vets Program launched in 2011 to pair shelter pets with veterans coping with PTSD, anxiety and other challenges as they transition back to civilian life following their service.
Time spent in a hospital usually means spending time away from familiar comforts, but it doesn’t have to. St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Purina partnered to create their vision for a place where family pets could visit their hospital-bound kids. The fourth family pet center in the world opened its doors in 2016. The Purina Family Pet Center helps children heal because being with your best friend while receiving care can be transformative.
