Nicollette Sheridan is teaming with Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods, PETCO and independent pet stores to raise money and awareness for organizations for guide dogs across the country and to celebrate National Guide Dog Month in September .
“I've always loved dogs, and this is a special way to celebrate the unique bond between dogs and their owners,” said Nicollette Sheridan. “It takes over two years and $40,000 to properly train a guide dog. Together, we can help make a difference for this important cause.”
Throughout September, pet parents can visit any of PETCO’s more than 1,000 locations nationwide, as well as many independent pet stores, and buy specially marked bags of Natural Balance dog food with Nicollette Sheridan's picture on them to donate $1 of the purchase price to participating guide dog schools. PETCO shoppers can also “round up” their purchases at the register to donate the difference to the cause, or donate money at the register, or make donations directly online at http://www.petco.com/
All proceeds from these National Guide Dog Month activities will be donated to participating guide dog training facilities nationwide. Recipients include:
Guide Dogs for the Blind, Inc.
Guide Dogs of the Desert
Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, Inc.
Southeastern Guide Dogs
Leader Dogs for the Blind
The Seeing Eye, Inc.
