Funding will go toward hiring a full-time employee, improving organization, expanding output with the use of new, efficient equipment, acquiring food certifications and adding air conditioning to the production facility. With enough help, the horse and dog treats will also be made available to people in other countries, including the US, according to Crocx.
Pledge levels have been created to help generate donations. Levels extend from a CAD$5 donation which gets a big thank you, to the CAD$2500 pledge, which not only gets the thank you, but a Crocx sticker, poster, basket of Crocx cookies, two 500g cookie bags each month for a year, three 3kg buckets of cookies for the shelter of the donor’s choice, plus future products not yet launched.
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.
