Pet Food Purchases Matched with Shelter Donations


All The Best Pet Care and Nature’s Variety “Pound for Pound Challenge” supplies food for local animal shelters.

As Thanksgiving nears, pet lovers often want to share the holiday with their dogs and cats, so they stock up on healthy food and treats. This year, local pet parents have the opportunity to provide healthy food for local shelter animals at the same time, at no cost. For the entire month of November, any Nature’s Variety dog or cat food purchased at an All The Best Pet Care store will be matched, pound for pound, with a food donation to a local shelter. Additionally, those who purchase Nature’s Variety food to donate to a shelter will get their gift matched, pound for pound, essentially doubling their donation. 

The food recipients will include Old Dog Haven, Cat Tales, Motley Zoo, Homeward Pet and PUPs.

“Last year, our Pound for Pound Challenge resulted in donations of more than 15,000 pounds of high-quality dog and cat food to our local shelters,” noted Susan Moss, owner of All The Best Pet Care.

Jenny Martin from Nature’s Variety said, “I’m really excited about this opportunity to make a huge impact on needy dogs and cats in our community. Together, we will provide the high-quality food shelter pets need to get off to a better start.”

Since 1985, All The Best Pet Care has offered healthy alternatives to the low quality, mass-marketed pet products. All The Best Pet Care has eleven stores located in the Seattle neighborhoods of Ballard, Crown Hill, Lake City, Madison Park and Queen Anne, and in Bellevue, Edmonds, Issaquah, Kenmore, Mercer Island, and Redmond.
