CHICAGO–Lincoln Bark donated $4,000 in charitable donations to nonprofits and dog rescues throughout the U.S. in 2012. The company worked closely with PAWS Chicago, The Anti-Cruelty Society and the Fido Friendly "Get Your Licks on Route 66" adoption tour.
"Part of Lincoln Bark's core mission is to promote animal welfare," said Bobbye Cochran, founder and president of Lincoln Bark. "We were honored and thrilled to partner with such dynamic charities in 2012, and we are looking forward to even more opportunities to give back in 2013."
Cumulatively, the company donated approximately $2,500 to PAWS Chicago and The Anti-Cruelty Society. The donations included gift baskets for fundraising events, treat donations for the shelter animals and sponsored booths at PAWS' Run for Their Lives 8K/4K and The Anti-Curelty Society's Bark in the Park 5K.
Additionally, Lincoln Bark's director of marketing, Michelle Laing, raised approximately $600 for homeless pets in Chicago by funning her first Chicago Marathon on behalf of Team PAWS.
The company also donated $1,500 worth of treats for adoptable dogs at 15 shelters across the U.S., as one of the premier sponsors of the Route 66 adoption tour.
