Paws for the Planet

NESTLÉ PURINA PETCARE CANADA - Purina's Paws for the PlanetAnimals at the Toronto Humane Society will be spending more time outside this summer thanks to the Paws for the Planet initiative, a program established by Purina and Evergreen to create a better, greener world for people and their pets. Communities across the country are pitching in to create safe and sustainable spaces for shelter animals to enjoy while they wait for their forever homes.

The Toronto Humane Society (THS) was the fourth of seven shelters across Canada to receive the green treatment as Purina and Evergreen joined together to renovate the renowned shelter that has been helping animals for decades. Last year, Paws for the Planet visited five shelters across Canada, including Toronto, where the team created rooftop gardens with a variety of animal-friendly plants.

Canadians can join the initiative and learn how to reduce their pet’s eco-paw print by visiting www.pawsfortheplanet.ca. They can also enter the contest online to win one of three $5000 backyard makeovers to create more green space at home to enjoy with their pets. With every contest entry, Purina will donate $5 (up to a maximum of $50,000) to Evergreen’s Stewardship and Restoration/Urban Ecology program to engage people in creating, restoring and stewarding accessible public green spaces across Canada.
