Foster Families Free Food Fridays: Update

The first week of this Free Food for Fosters was a great success. Dolittle’s gave out over $250.00 dollars of free food to thankful foster families. Dolittle’s will continue the program for the next two Fridays (01/15/2010 and 1/22/2010). Repeats are welcome.

Dolittle’s wishes to thank those individuals who go out of their way to find a little extra space in their home for a foster pet. Through the help of pet food companies and thoughtful customers, Dolittle’s has come up with a way to express gratitude. All three Dolittle’s locations will be offering a FREE bag of dog food to anyone who is fostering a dog from a local rescue or shelter. The program will continue on each Friday in January or as long as supplies are available.

 “Foster families are unsung heroes of the pet world.” says owner Ric Sommons “They open their hearts and homes to needy pets, and care for these pets as their own. Then if everything goes well, they see that their fosters find wonderful families. That’s very generous, and Dolittle’s wants to say thank you.”

Foster families need to present a letter from their rescue group, shelter or vet showing that they have a dog currently in their care. Each family will receive one bag of food at no cost, while the supplies last. Dolittle’s offers only all natural foods for pets, the free bags are offered from specific manufacturers and choices are available for dogs that have sensitivities.

Dolittle’s has been selling food for more than 10 years, and has been able to work with several manufacturers to get this program rolling. “This is a program we would like to offer again and again. We are looking forward to the response from this initial offering.” says owner Ric Sommons “Our current customers have given generous support to the program. We have a rewards card that customers can chose to take a store discount or offer it to rescue group. Lately customers have been turning cards in to support the free food campaign.”

West Ashley – 22 F Windermere Blvd 852-5811
