The Huntsville Soccer Club has been putting in a lot of effort this season to form a brand new women’s league. Their hard work has paid off, and the league is now up and running with a great deal of support from the community.
One of the local businesses that has stepped up to support the league is Global Pet Foods Huntsville. They were approached by the Huntsville Soccer Club to take part in the league as a sponsor, and they eagerly agreed. Now, the first-ever Women’s League trophy is sponsored by Global Pet Foods Huntsville and is called the Global Pet Foods Cup.
It’s not every day that a local business gets the chance to sponsor a sports league trophy, especially a brand new one. This sponsorship speaks to the commitment that Global Pet Foods Huntsville has to the community and to supporting local initiatives.
This partnership between the Huntsville Soccer Club and Global Pet Foods Huntsville is a great example of how local businesses can work together with community organizations to create something that benefits everyone. The soccer league gets the support it needs to thrive, and Global Pet Foods Huntsville gets the chance to give back to the community in a meaningful way.

The Meade Family: Paws for a Good Time
We would like to introduce you to the people behind the new Global Pet Foods in Kelowna. Meet the Meade family! Marie and Nathan are parents to Milo, 16, and Dexter, 11. During their almost twenty years of being married, the Meades have had an assortment of dogs which showcases their attachment to animals. Without pets, their family would be happy but not complete.
Marie started a job at a local pet store and quickly got promoted to Manager. Learning how much she enjoyed that job, she started to look into owning a store herself and got full support from the whole family. After researching options, Global Pet Foods stood out with its 100% Canadian company and great brands. So, the decision was made and the process was started.
The new Global Pet Foods store in Kelowna will be open seven days a week, providing pet owners with the convenience of shopping for their pets whenever they need to. With its commitment to providing high-quality pet food and products, supporting the local community, and its beautiful store design, Global Pet Foods Kelowna is poised to become a favorite among pet owners in the region.

As a devoted animal lover, Betty White dedicated her time to help animals in need. Her admiration for all animals inspired the #BettyWhiteChallenge which asks fans of the actress and fellow animal lovers to donate $5 or more to animal rescues or shelters in her name.
Global Pet Foods will match all donations received through the Global Pets & Animals Foundation up to $10,000 on Monday, January 17th. Donations will be made in Betty White’s name to a Canadian animal rescue or shelter in need.
Global Pet Foods has been a strong advocate in supporting Canadian animal charities through our annual Show Us Your Heart campaign raising funds to assist local animal rescues and associations with total donations exceeding 2 million dollars.

Ontario, Canada (March 1, 2021) – Nutram Pet Products, a Canadian pet nutrition company located and produced in Elmira, Ontario, Canada, will be donating $1 for every bag of Nutram sold to a charity within your local community.
In May 2020, Nutram recognized the challenge many animal shelters were facing amidst the pandemic. The Canadian company launched Vote for Humane Kind, a campaign to select the top 10 charitable pet shelters, as voted by communities across Canada, to each receive $5,000.
“We wanted to contribute to the increased need for pet shelter funding as a result of the pandemic,” said Heather McKay, Brand Manager, Nutram. “This led to our heightened awareness of the many charitable causes, both pet and human-related, that could benefit from our support.”
As a result, Nutram has decided to launch Feed4, and will be donating $1 for every bag of Nutram sold, large or small, to a local charity selected by each of their Canadian-owned retailers.
“With every bag of Nutram purchased, your dollar supports Canadian nutrition, Canadian farmers, and Canadian retailers,” McKay says. “Now, your dollar goes even further to support a charity within your local community. The pandemic has really encouraged us, as Canadians, to support fellow Canadians.”
Nutram, exclusively sold in Canadian-owned retailers, has tasked Canadian pet specialty stores to select a charitable cause within their own community as the recipient of their donation.
McKay says they’re thrilled to be seeing the wide range of charitable causes being selected by pet specialty stores. “We’ve seen everything from local dog and cat rescues, to homeless shelters, to child Christmas gift-giving charitable organizations. Everyone has selected organizations that resonate with their own communities.”
The Feed4 donations will be backdated to all bags purchased from January 1, 2021 and will continue to accumulate on all Nutram bag purchases for 2021.

For media inquiries, high resolution images or interview requests, contact Heather McKay, Brand Manager, at email@example.com or (519) 669-6301.
Since 1993, Nutram has been a 100% Canadian, family-owned pet wellness company. Taking a holistic approach to pet nutrition, Nutram offers all-natural pet food options for dogs and cats, produced in their privately-owned world-class production facility in Elmira, Ontario.

Global Pet Foods & Champion Petfoods Team up to Support Frontline Medical Professionals Across Canada
During these unprecedented times, we all need to work together and support one another. That’s why two proudly Canadian companies, Global Pet Foods and Champion Petfoods, are teaming up to give away 2,000 bags of ACANA® or ORIJEN® pet food across the country to frontline medical professionals.
Over the last few months, the staff at hospitals, specifically, have been putting their own health, safety, and needs on the backburner to support their communities and the people within, so it’s more important than ever to show our appreciation for their commitment to the local Canadian communities we are so involved with.
During the next few weeks, the Global Pet Foods team will be reaching out to hospitals in the hardest hit areas across the country to offer the frontline medical professionals a free bag of ACANA® or ORIJEN® pet food.
