“We are grateful to Champion Petfoods for helping us provide families and animal welfare organizations with assistance to care for their pets,” said Liz Baker, CEO for Greater Good Charities. “Pet food is one of the biggest expenses for shelters and rescue groups and no family should ever be forced to have to give up their pets because of an economic hardship.”
