Gulfport, Miss. & Mobile, Ala.— Floor Trader asked the community to join them in their effort to help the Humane Society of South Mississippi & Mobile SPCA bring supplies and adopt animals, and the community answered with a loud roar.
During the month of June, the three locations gathered much needed supplies, cash donations from their vendors and gave out free adoption certificates to anyone who brought in a donation to the cause.
Each store hosted a pet adoption day where the shelters brought in pets of all shapes and sizes to be adopted into their new home. The supplies drive was a huge success, as 245 lbs of pet food, 247 lbs of kitty litter, 15 gallons of bleach, 2 gallons of shampoo, 7 lbs of treats and pounds and pounds of other supplies were collected. Five animals found new homes during the three adoption drives with the adoption fee being paid by the Floor Trader.
“We also reached out to our suppliers and vendors and asked them to support us in our cause and they flooded us with assistance. We raised $1,200 for the two shelters along with the supplies that the community brought in” said Lauren Braden, Social Media & Promotions Director for the Floor Trader. “We were overwhelmed with the support, and hope to be able to do this again next year with even more success. Especially with the recent events of the intake of large quantities of dogs in need, we are thrilled that we could help.”
