Nutro Pet Foods is teaming up with Rocky's Ace Hardware of Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, to help support its third annual Holiday Pet Food Drive. Nutro is donating more than US$1,500 worth of dog and cat food to get the drive started.
Each of the 32 Rocky's Ace Hardware stores in the area is partnering with a local humane society or shelter to collect food during the holiday season for pets in need. The petfood drive runs through December 23.
