Pet treat maker Lincoln Bark made roughly US$4,000 in charitable donations to nonprofits and dog rescues throughout the US in fiscal 2012. The three main recipients of Lincoln Bark’s donations were PAWS Chicago, The Anti-Cruelty Society and the Fido Friendly magazine “Get Your Licks on Route 66” adoption tour.
In total, Lincoln Bark donated nearly US$2,500 to PAWS Chicago and The Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The donations included gift baskets for fundraising events, Lincoln Bark dog treats, and sponsored booths at PAWS’ Run for Their Lives 8K/4K and The Anti-Cruelty Society’s Bark in the Park 5K. Lincoln Bark's director of marketing, Michelle Laing, also raised about US$600 for homeless pets by running on behalf of Team PAWS in the Chicago Marathon.
Additionally, Lincoln Bark donated US$1,500 worth of dog treats to the dogs at 15 USA shelters from California to Illinois as one of the sponsors of the Route 66 adoption tour.
Lincoln Bark says inquiries and opportunities for the company to get involved in the pet community are welcomed and may be sent to email@example.com.
