Smucker’s: Bring back pet-food donations immediately!

This petition made change with 102,239 supporters!


Big Heart Pet Brands, previously the largest U.S. standalone pet food and treats producer, distributor, and marketer, has been donating imperfect, dented cans and missing label pet foods to non-profit animal shelters across the country. That is, until the J.M. Smucker Company bought Big Heart. This recent acquisition has lead to the immediate and indefinite halt of pet-food donations, and what I believe is a pet-food shortage crisis.

For years the “damaged” food and treats were passed along to the communities where the processing plants are located. Local shelters became critically dependent on these donations in order to provide for the animals and operate in the community. These shelters are now struggling to feed their animals.

Instead of continuing to donate to the community shelters, it would appear as though the company has been discarding this valuable resource for months. Most shelters save about one month’s worth of food, so as you can imagine, the impact this loss has had on these shelters and the lives of the shelter animals is devastating.

Please join me in asking the J.M. Smucker Company to immediately resume providing these pet food donations to the shelters in their communities nationwide.
