Solid Gold Pet donates an estimated $500,000 of premium pet food nationwide through Petco partnership

GREENVILLE, S.C., Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Solid Gold Pet, America's first holistic pet food, is partnering with Petco to donate an estimated $500,000 of premium pet food to selected pet charities nationwide. The program kicked off earlier this month as more than 1,300 Petco locations across the U.S. finalize the placement of Solid Gold's new package design.

SOLID GOLD PET TEAMS WITH PETCO TO DONATE AN ESTIMATED $500,000 OF PREMIUM PET FOOD TO LOCAL CHARITIES NATIONWIDE.

"We strongly believe in the benefits of good pet nutrition for all pets and are proud to partner with a leading specialty pet retailer like Petco to help make a difference to dogs and cats in need," said Michelle Higdon, CEO of Solid Gold Pet. "We know that great nutrition makes all of the difference in the world to a pet's quality of life. We call this bringing out their Inner Gold."

We recently launched a bold new look for our brand, with updates extending across every touchpoint from our website to our packaging. Our package design was a major part of that change which meant replacing all of our existing products with the new package design. It was natural for us to join forces with Petco to make this donation and it underscores our like-minded social mission of giving back to the community." 

Solid Gold's new package transition in Petco retailers as well as donations to local market charities will be completed by the end of January 2015. For more information, visit  www.solidgoldpet.com/donations.
