2019 Tons of Love Program Gives Over $140,000 to Animal Welfare Organizations

Customers, Manufacturers and Mud Bay Come Together to Donate to Animals in Need

Shelter Partners |  January 17, 2020

Since 2013, the Tons of Love program has united customers, manufacturing partners, and Muddies in the goal to support animal welfare organizations in the Pacific Northwest. For 2019, we had a record-breaking year and raised over $140,000 to be distributed among the different animal shelters and nonprofits that participate in our Tons of Love program.

We want to thank every one of our customers for this achievement. We’re honored by the hundreds of people who donated to the Giving Tree or bought items from this year’s Tons of Love participants. Total Giving Tree contributions this year was worth over $75,000, which included over 4 tons of food.

We’d also like to thank the manufacturing partners who participated in Tons of Love this year. This year’s participants were NutriSource/PureVita, Nulo, Stella & Chewy’s, Mud Bay’s Palouse Kitty, Farm Fresh, Cycle Dog, and Earth Animal. They donated the equivalent of $45,000 worth of food, litter, cash and supplies, which included over 8 tons of food and 1 ton of cat litter. Mud Bay also donated $20,000 to Tons of Love this year.

This year, Mud Bay will be hand delivering literal tons of food from the Tons of Love program to many shelter partners throughout the PNW. We invite you to share in the joy by viewing this gallery of delivery images which we will update throughout January and February.

A time of silence, in solidarity: 8 minutes, 46 se A time of silence, in solidarity: 8 minutes, 46 seconds, please join us!

To stand in solidarity today, June 4, we will temporarily close our doors for a moment of silence in recognition of George Floyd’s funeral. From 12:30 PM-1:00 PM, we are participating in a period of silence--specifically, 8 minutes, 46 seconds, starting at 12:45:00 PST through 12:53:46 PST. This time is to recognize a call for a National Day of Mourning and honor the life of George Floyd and countless other Black and POC citizens who have suffered violence as a result of discrimination and systemic oppression. This is an opportunity for us to stand together, continue this call for solidarity, and reflect on and recognize our own work within this movement.

Taking these minutes reflects our commitment to the work that lies ahead to address centuries of systemic racism in our country. We, as a company and a group of owners, recognize that this single event, in and of itself, is not enough. Muddies--including Mud Bay’s Exec Team and our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee--are engaging in tough, vulnerable conversations to understand our part in this long journey. We value every Muddy’s engagement in supporting one another and helping to make Mud Bay a more diverse, equitable and inclusive company.  https://ecs.page.link/Gpprj
