Disaster Relief

Pet Supply Shipping Locations

The Pet Leadership Council and its members have come together to provide aid to victims of the devastating wildfires in California and other recent natural disasters. If you are interested in seeking assistance from the pet care community or would like to help our cause please contact our partner in disaster relief, GreaterGood.

GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program helps distributors, manufacturers, and retailers get their donated supplies to those in need as efficiently as possible. Upon receiving notification of an available donation from a supplier, Rescue Bank coordinates and covers the costs of shipping those supplies to regional distribution centers managed by local affiliate groups. Those affiliates then notify other local groups and agencies in the affected area about the availability of the supplies. More information about the Rescue Bank program can be found here.

Distributors, manufacturers, and retailers wishing to contribute supplies to areas affected by recent hurricanes are urged to contact Denise Bash, GreaterGood.org’s Director of Special Projects, at (215) 317-9909 to coordinate logistics.

While Rescue Bank provides an efficient way for those in the pet industry to quickly get their donated supplies into the hands of those in need, suppliers may also ship their donations to the following locations.
