HomeCOVID-19Mohawk donates PPE to ASPCA

Calhoun, Ga.—Mohawk Industries is donating personal protective equipment (PPE) to the The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to ensure the safety of its staff working in communities greatly impacted by COVID-19. The effort helps ensure staff feel safe and comfortable while continuing to care for and protect animals across the country, the company said.

“The ASPCA is deeply committed to protecting vulnerable animals and keeping pets and their families together by helping shelters and pet owners access the resources and information they need during the COVID-19 crisis,” said Rebecca Frommer, director of cause partnerships and events, ASPCA.

The ASPCA has expanded its work to meet the current needs of pet owners and the animal welfare community by launching the ASPCA COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Initiative. The initiative brings lifesaving services to pet owners and animals most in need, and the ASPCA is committed to helping approximately 200,000 animals nationally through its efforts, the company said.

By providing access to free pet food, supplies, veterinary care, emergency boarding, information and crucial funding, the ASPCA is comprehensively addressing the most urgent needs of pet owners and animal shelters across the country, helping to keep animals safe and healthy. The donated PPE from Mohawk allows the ASPCA to balance the safety of its staff with the important work to help vulnerable animals and communities in need, the company said.

Supporting the ASPCA with PPE further demonstrates Mohawk’s long-standing commitment  to homes with pets. Mohawk has several hard and soft flooring product lines featuring All Pet Protection & Warranty, the pet-protection system that covers all pets, all accidents, all the time.

“We care about our communities and the furry friends that make them even more special,” noted Bart Hill, senior vice president of product development and operations, Mohawk Home. “When the ASPCA shared their need for PPE, we jumped on board quickly. It’s gratifying work to help those stepping up to fight against COVID-19.”

Mohawk has dedicated its Antioch Road facility in Dalton and its location on Marine Drive in Calhoun to manufacture face shields and protective gowns for local medical centers, law enforcement agencies, first responders and others in need. Mohawk produces 10,000 face shields as well as about 5,000 protective gowns a day.
