Also, in honor of National Pet Adoption Day, Hormel Foods will be covering all pet adoption fees up to $3,000 at the Mower County shelter on Saturday, May 2 from 10-11:30 a.m.
“The tie-in was just too perfect,” said Jason Baskin, Hormel Foods marketing director, Grocery Products. “As soon as we learned there was a dog at the Mower County shelter named Chili who was about to give birth, we knew we had to do something. Helping to find great homes for Chili’s puppies is the least we could do.”
The Mower County Humane Society, located at 101 22nd Street SE in Austin, is run entirely by volunteers. The group strives to take in homeless and stray dogs and cats and place them into responsible, lifelong homes. “We’re thankful for the help and generosity of Hormel Foods,” said Jay Lutz, president, Mower County Humane Society. “In addition to Chili’s puppies, we have many wonderful older dogs and cats at our shelter waiting to be adopted as well.”
