Store collecting aid for hundreds of seized dogs

Through its “The Gift of Life” program, the Bonney Lake Pet Pros is collecting donations to help the hundreds of dogs seized from the Snohomish and Skagit county area which are now being kept at the Everett Animal Shelter, unable to be adopted while an investigation takes place.

Through its “The Gift of Life” program, the Bonney Lake Pet Pros is collecting donations to help the hundreds of dogs seized from the Snohomish and Skagit county area which are now being kept at the Everett Animal Shelter, unable to be adopted while an investigation takes place.

“Everyone at Pet Pros take incidents like this very seriously,” Pet Pros President Dan Albrecht wrote in an e-mail. “We are extremely passionate about our furry friends. We have always contributed to animals in need, from regular pet food donations, to adoption events and collections for local Hope for the (pet) Homeless and the pet victims of Katrina.”

For this particular issue, Pet Pros has developed “The Gift of Life” program, where customers and community members can simply come into Pet Pros stores – in the southend that’s Bonney Lake, Milton and Lakeland – and make a donation.

Albrecht said donations range from $1 and higher with every little bit helping. The money will be forwarded to the Everett Animal Shelter to help care and maintain the abused dogs recently rescued. Many of these dogs were pregnant at the time of rescue and they expect that number to rapidly increase. As of this date, Pet Pros customers have donated more than $6,700.

“We are all very proud and happy to be a part of this cause,” Albrecht said.

Pet Pros was founded in 1986 in Seattle and has grown to be a part of 15 neighborhoods in the Puget Sound area. Pet Pros is now one of the largest independent pet supply retailers in the Northwest. The company focus is to service customers and their pets, by providing educated employees and offering the most nutritional foods available.
