During this season of giving, Chewy will match up to $2 Million in Wish List donations, Surpassing $30 million in total donations for 2021.
Chewy Inc announced its commitment to match up to $2 million in customer donations in celebration of Giving Tuesday. The company will match donations made through a shelter or rescue’s Wish List from November 24 to November 30, 2021.
According to a company release, the matching donation from Chewy will be distributed in partnership with Greater Good Charities to animal welfare organizations across the country. The company is focused especially on shelters that lack the basic, foundational supplies that are crucial for operation.
“This time of year provides an excellent opportunity to partner with our customers to make a difference in the lives of shelter and rescue pets across the country. With so many animal welfare organizations in critical need of basic necessities, we wanted to provide an experience for pet parents to help fulfill those needs in a meaningful and personalized way,” said Mita Malhotra, Vice President of Chewy Health and Shelters.
To facilitate donations, Chewy provides a Wish List feature that allows any nonprofit shelter or rescue in the US to curate a list of needed items. Anyone can then search for a shelter or rescue to support, and then donate those requested items and have them delivered directly to the organization. People can choose a local shelter to support or search for animal welfare organizations across the country that are in need of basic necessities.
“We are extremely grateful for this partnership with Chewy that allows us to help thousands of homeless pets and the people that care for them,” said Liz Baker, Chief Executive Officer for Greater Good Charities.
“Chewy’s Wish List feature makes it easy for nonprofits around the country—including ours—to help save shelter pets in need. And the matching donation will provide millions of dollars in additional impact to animal welfare organizations nationwide, just when it is most needed,” continues Baker.
This event is expected to provide a boost to the Chewy Gives Back program, which has provided more than $30 Million in total donations of pet food, supplies, and products provided to shelters and rescues this year.
