October 15, 2019 – The Oakville & Milton Humane Society (OMHS) has announced a partnership with Royal Canin Canada – a global leader in tailored health and nutrition products for dogs and cats. This important relationship means the OMHS will have access to Royal Canin’s full range of professional diets, ensuring the nutritional requirements of the shelter’s cats and dogs are met at the same high standard as the care they receive.
The partnership also includes a fundraising component through in-shelter retailing for the OMHS, allowing them to drive important revenues back into the shelter. “This is a partnership we’re incredibly proud of,” said Don MacIntosh, Professional Pillar Director for Royal Canin Canada. “The goals of the OMHS align very closely with our own mission of making a better world for pets. Working with groups like the OMHS is so important to our communities, and it’s a responsibility our team is extremely passionate about.”
The OMHS relationship is one of many such partnerships run nationally by Royal Canin, providing volunteers and staff with ongoing nutrition knowledge and professional support around the complex challenges they face daily.
“The work your staff and volunteers do every day is vital to the animals in our care, and the Royal Canin partnership enables us to provide optimal nutrition and support for all of them,” explains Rick Perciante, Executive Director for the Oakville & Milton Humane Society. “I’m particularly excited about how this partnership perfectly aligns with our mission to protect animals and make their lives better, and to connect the communities that care about them in Oakville and Milton.”
