Phillips Pet Food & Supplies announced that their partner, Canidae, recently made a charitable donation of over 200,000 pounds of dog food, according to a press release. The contribution was given to the Greater Good organization, giving long-term support to communities affected by Hurricane Ida.

Back in August, Hurricane Ida hit the southern Louisiana coast as a Category 4 storm. The life-threatening storm surge brought winds over 150 mph and widespread flooding. The Greater Good organization worked to move over 150 shelter pets and sent medication, survival supplies and other items needed to the local animal shelters.  

The donation from Canidae will give pet owners relief in knowing their animal is provided for during the critical time of rebuilding.  

“We are very fortunate to have such a generous partner in Canidae, who is partnered with us in our donation efforts,” said Elizabeth Thibodeau, senior vice president, merchandising for Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, in a statement. “Their generous donation is going to benefit thousands of pet parents in need of support through the Greater Good Organization and allow some relief after the tragedy they have experienced.”
