NutriCanine donates dog food amid COVID-19 crisis
April 1, 2020, Toronto, Ont. – NutriCanine, a raw dog food delivery service, is donating 1,000 pounds of dog food to vulnerable and immuno-compromised members of the community, as well as those financially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Toronto-based startup aims to help ensure that everyone can continue to access healthy, nutritious food for their pets amid store closures, self-isolation and social distancing. In support of government recommendations and response efforts across Canada, NutriCanine is enforcing heightened safety protocols and is continuing to offer contactless delivery.
“I love my dog Bella more than anything in the world,” said Jason Knight, founder of NutriCanine. “I can’t imagine the reality that some people are facing of having to choose between self-isolating for the safety of themself and others, or being able to go out and get food for their dog.
“Pets reduce stress and anxiety, and that’s what a lot of us need right now. Finding food to take care of them shouldn’t be an added worry. Everyone should have access to essential items like pet food.”
To further assist the community, NutriCanine will also be reducing prices by 30 per cent on every order placed within 30 days and will continue to offer free, contactless delivery on all orders.
NutriCanine is a subscription-based dog food delivery service. It was the first raw dog food company in Canada to provide pre-portioned meals.
