Howl and Prowl leading sponsor Blue Buffalo ( talks about why they support Pet Pantry events and pet rescue organizations. “At BLUE we know that adopted animals can make the best friends. With millions of homeless pets across the country we wanted to show our support to our furry friends in need. As we have in years past, we pounced at the chance to sponsor Howl and Prowl and support the fine work done by Adopt-A-Dog! Much Like Pet Pantry Warehouse we care for the health and wellbeing of all pet family members.”

Brian Gordiski from Adopt-A-Dog praised the pet supply retailer and for its regular fundraising support. “Since Pet Pantry Warehouse developed Howl and Prowl in 2008, we have been humbled to be the exclusive beneficiary of this event. We count on their support throughout the year, and this day is a chance for us to just go out there and have fun! We wouldn’t have the ability to care for the amount of rescues we take in throughout the year without them, and we are humbled to have been a part of their fundraising initiatives for many years.
