Better Choice Company Partners with iHeartMedia to Support Animal Shelters Impacted by COVID-19
NEW YORK, June 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Better Choice Company (OTCQB: BTTR) (“Better Choice”) is pleased to announce a partnership with iHeartMedia to provide support to animal shelters impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of the Better Choice Company COVID-19 Relief Initiative, sister brands Halo and TruDog have partnered together with iHeartMedia to donate $100,000 in monetary funds and $100,000 worth of product to shelters nationwide. The Company’s COVID-19 Relief Initiative included shelters in Atlanta, Phoenix, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Long Island, and San Francisco.
"Donations play a large role for many animal shelters across the US," said Werner von Pein, Better Choice CEO. "Through our partnership with iHeartMedia we hope to fill some of the void left by decreased donations during the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe that each and every animal impacts our lives and ultimately plays a role in improving our collective well-being. This includes sheltered animals, and that’s why we take giving back so seriously—to help nourish and transform shelter pets to help give them their very best chance at a forever home."
“We are delighted to work with Better Choice on the COVID-19 Relief Initiative during this critical time of need,” commented Peter Volynsky, Executive Vice President, Corporate Development and Ventures at iHeartMedia.
