Wednesday, July 18th ––Dog Star Rescue and Pack Leaders Rescue are pleased to announce that they have secured $50,000.00 worth of pet food products. Through connections at Nestle Purina PetCare Company in association with The Hometown Foundation, Inc., they were able to provide this product to many rescues across the state.


Nestle Purina PetCare Company had reached out to The Hometown Foundation, Inc., on securing a large donation of Purina products for rescues in need from Jetro Cash & Carry. Immediately, the foundation secured sponsorship and commitment from Turnpike Motors Auto Body who sponsored transportation of the donated products and Hooker Brewery who assisted in the unloading and storage. The product pick up was led by Dan McCabe of Dog Star Rescue and Montana Catenio of Pack Leaders Rescue who both had one goal in mind, to distribute this donation to rescues across Connecticut.


“We are looking forward to getting this pet food out to rescues, shelters & humane societies as soon as possible. Having this much food on hand allows us to supply multiple organizations in need throughout the entire state,” said Dan McCabe, founder of Dog Star Rescue.


“At Turnpike Motors Auto Body we work closely with our friends at The Hometown Foundation, Inc. When we heard of this opportunity and the impact it would have for Connecticut rescues, we jumped in with no hesitation! Opportunities and acts of kindness like this are critical for our furry friends,” said Marty Smith of Turnpike Motors Auto Body.


We would like to thank our sponsors involved in this pet food donation and operation. They include Turnpike Motors Auto Body, Jetro Cash & Carry, The Hometown Foundation, Inc., Dog Star Rescue, Pack Leaders Rescue, Hooker Brewery, Enterprise and especially Nestle Purina PetCare Company.


Please join us this Saturday, July 21st at Dog Star Rescue 12 Tobey Road, Bloomfield, CT 06002 at 10:00am, as we unload this food for dozens of well-deserving rescues.
