Petflow recently launched as an alternative way for consumers to purchase petfood online with scheduled delivery times and low shipping fees.
This New York, USA-based service allows users to choose the petfood and delivery time they want, charging US$5 for delivery on all orders. PetFlow will donate US$40 to the International Fund for Animal Welfare on behalf of anyone who signs up for the delivery service through IFAW's link on the home page.
"A US$40 donation can go a long way toward assisting one of IFAW’s many efforts across the globe,” said Fred O’Regan, president and chief executive at IFAW. “It could vaccinate 20 street dogs in Bali to prevent rabies or it would provide enough formula to feed an orphan elephant in India for an entire week. This money could also provide a uniform, work boots and backpack for a ranger protecting elephants and other wildlife. Thanks to PetFlow.com, each and every donation can help change an animal’s life.”
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
