Customers can vote for the winning organization this weekend
MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) — As Pet Supplies Plus celebrates with a grand opening this weekend, the local business will also be giving back to the community.
“With every purchase during opening weekend, each neighbor will receive a voting chip to vote for their favorite opening partner,” explained Kim Crawford, store team manager. “The Grand Opening partner with the most voting tokens at the end of Sunday the 17th will receive the $1,000 prize and the other two will receive $250 for their participation in the Grand Opening weekend.”
Visitors can choose from Marshfield Area Pet Shelter (MAPS), Clark County Humane Society and Marshfield Police Department’s K9 Unit, all of which will have representatives at the store to further explain their respective missions.
“MAPS is thrilled to be working with another wonderful business partner in our community,” said Karen Rau, Executive Director of MAPS. “Our rescue work is community driven; which means it takes a lifeline of volunteers, adopters, donors and corporate supporters to fulfill our mission for homeless animals. Without them, our work would not be possible.
This opening weekend celebration is just the beginning of Pet Supplies Plus’ philanthropic efforts.
“Pet Supplies Plus is hometown focused, down to earth, knowledgeable and caring. We really care about the community and their pets,” Crawford said. “We look forward to partnering with the Humane Society, dog parks and other local animal welfare groups. We are working with local shelters to also have adoptable pets in store. We are thrilled to be here !
“We are so lucky to be supported by such a compassionate and generous community who want to ensure our local animals receive the best care,” Rau added.
