What is #ProjectPetRAK?
It is our passion for giving pets the healthiest life possible that has driven us to design and create our Grandma Lucy’s products for the past 15 years. Every pet, regardless of where or how they live, deserve a healthy life. We would love for you to join us in our mission to give back to pets in need while spreading a little kindness along the way. For every Random Act of Kindness (or RAK) you do benefiting pets, Grandma Lucy’s will be donating a pound of food to a charity, rescue or shelter. Whether it is leaving some extra balls at your local dog park for others to play with or collecting some warm blankets for a shelter near your house, you will be making other pets day while earning food for those that may otherwise go without a healthy meal. You are the driving force and we look forward working with you to spread kindness and the best possible nutrition to special pets across the country.
How do I join the Project?
1. Complete a pet-related Random Act of Kindness.
2. Post and share your RAK on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ProjectPetRAK, tag us @grandmalucys and tag one of the four charities of the month (so we know who you are working to help).
3. That’s it! For each person’s RAK, a pound of food will be donated to one of our selected charity groups. **
Some ideas for your Pet RAK:
- Buy a dog treat for the person behind you in line at your local pet store and hope they return the favor to the person behind them.
- Bring extra water to your dog park on a hot day to share with others.
- Donate blankets or towels to your local pet shelter.
- Leave a small treat on your neighbor’s doorstep for their pet to enjoy.
- Play catch with an elderly friend or neighbor’s dog.
- Have your scout troop make braided, fleece dog toys for a dog rescue group.
- Have a ball drive at your office and collect tennis balls for a shelter of your choice.
- Leave some balls at your local dog park for others to enjoy.
- Offer to walk your neighbor’s dog one day while they are at work.
- Be sure to follow @GrandmaLucys on Instagram for more RAK ideas. The possibilities are endless!
