Purina and Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. (UCBC) are continuing their annual “Raise a Pint for Pets” campaign to raise funds for shelter pets in St. Louis while providing pet owners a fun and tasty way to spend the evening at home with their pets.
From Aug. 1 through Sept. 30, for every Urban Underdog Dinner Pack sold at UCBC’s Grove Brewery & Bierhall, the pet experts at Purina will donate $10 to the Petfinder Foundation to help local shelter pets and the organizations that serve them*. The campaign in total aims to raise $25,000, which will be shared among the following shelters in the St. Louis metropolitan area:
- Helping Strays of Monroe County
- Gateway Pet Guardians
- Metro East Humane Society
- Open Door Animal Sanctuary
- Partners for Pets
- Humane Society of Missouri
- APA Adoption Center
- CARE STL
- Bellville Area Humane Society
- Five Acres Animal Shelter
Urban Underdog Dinner Packs can be ordered online at urbanchestnut.com and will be available for pick up seven days a week at UCBC’s Grove Brewery & Bierhall located at 4465 Manchester Ave. in The Grove. Cheese pizza packs cost $25 and pepperoni pizza packs cost $28.
Each Urban Underdog Dinner Pack includes:
- One Take ‘n Bake Pizza (cheese or pepperoni)
- One 4-pack of Urban Underdog American Lager
- One bag of Purina Beggin’ Strips
- One limited-edition Urban Underdog can koozie
In addition, Purina will donate $1 to the Petfinder Foundation for each can of Urban Underdog American Lager sold at participating food and/or beverage establishments in Missouri.
“Pet shelters around St. Louis have been severely impacted by COVID-19, and while some have experienced record numbers of adoptions, all area shelters have had to cancel fundraisers and other community events,” said Kim Beardslee from Purina Community Affairs. “Teaming up with our fellow pet-loving friends at Urban Chestnut to help raise funds for local shelters is needed now more than ever.”
This is the fourth-consecutive year Purina and Urban Chestnut have teamed up for a philanthropic effort. Since its inception in 2017, the ‘Raise a Pint for Pets’ campaign has helped to raise more than $200,000 for local animal shelters.
“Over these past few months, a lot of us have found ourselves spending more time with our family pets, gaining a renewed appreciation for all they do for us,” said David Wolfe co-owner and cofounder of Urban Chestnut Brewing. “We are fortunate we are able to assist Purina’s efforts to ensure local shelters have the resources they need to help pets find their forever homes.”
