Perdue Associates and Spot Farms® Deliver 3,000 Pounds Of Pet Food To Western Indiana Animal Shelters
August 5, 2019
Salisbury, Md. (Monday, August 5, 2019) — Perdue Farms associates at the company’s operations based in Washington, Ind., and family owned Spot Farms® recently delivered nearly 3,000 pounds of pet food to three animal shelters in western Indiana.
“We are so grateful for the people and businesses in our community who support the animal shelter with food donations, including this donation from Perdue and Spot Farms,” said Beth Trousdale, animal control officer for the Washington Animal Control Shelter. “We take in about 800 unwanted pets each year who need homes. That is a lot of mouths to feed on a limited budget.”
Perdue associates collected more than 1,000 pounds of food through an operations-wide call to action to support the animal shelter. The food drive included donations from the processing plant and feed mill in Washington, a hatchery in Vincennes and breeder farms in Thorntown. Additionally, family owned Spot Farms® donated three pallets of dehydrated dog food totaling more than 1,800 pounds. The donations were distributed equally among the City of Washington Animal Control Shelter, the Vincennes Animal Shelter and the Clinton County Humane Society in Frankfort.
“These organizations work hand in hand to find loving homes for our furry friends whether they are strays, from puppy mills or taken away from bad pet owners,” said Sara Norfolk, human resources manager, who coordinated the initiative. “They do great work and I’m glad we were able to help out.”
“At Spot Farms, we know firsthand the bond that people share with their pets,” said Ryan Perdue, general manager of Spot Farms™. “We’re pleased to provide high-quality human grade pet nutrition to support the valuable work these shelters do to enrich the lives of the animals in their care and help find their forever home.”
