PetSmart Charities

" PetSmart Charities today announced that it is sending even more pet supplies to the Midwest, where the devastating floods have displaced countless animals. Hundreds of pet crates, bowls, collars, leads -- and more than four tons of cat litter -- arrived early this morning in Iowa to help the pet victims of this disaster.

PetSmart Charities received a request for additional shipments of animal crates and pet supplies from the City of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and quickly dispatched two semi-trailers from PetSmart's (NASDAQ: PETM) Ottawa, Illinois distribution center on Tuesday, June 17. On board was a combined load of 26 pallets of pet food and supplies, including 450 crates, 120 dog collars and leads, 510 food bowls, 288 litter pans and 8,046 pounds of cat litter. The products were received by the City of Cedar Rapids at the Kirkwood Community College, 6301 Kirkwood Blvd. S.W. in Cedar Rapids this morning.

Additionally, PetSmart Charities is responding to a request from Iowa City Animal Services for crates, bowls, leashes, collars and cat litter to aid in the animal-relief effort. Six pallets will arrive by trailer at the Johnson County Fairgrounds to assist pets at that staging area."
