UPDATE: Purina Dog Chow has extended their partnership with Patriot Rovers through August 2012.
They rose to the top of the country music charts with their single “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not,” and husband and wife Keifer and Shawna Thompson of the duo Thompson Square hold the number one spot in the hearts of dog devotees for helping out vets and pets.
The Academy of Country Music Award-winning pair (and doting pet parents to a puppy named Etta) have teamed with Purina® Dog Chow® to promote the pet food brand’s online community Dog Families Know, where fellow fans of Fidos can share stories of how their canine companion has changed their lives and show their support for a military dog organization in the process.
Through July 31, 2012, Purina Dog Chow will post a new topic on their Facebook page that dog families can relate to, and for every unique story, photo or video tacked onto the virtual community board – via Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook, Purina® Dog Chow® Brand Dog Food will donate $1, up to $25,000, to Patriot Rovers, Inc., helping support its mission to “Save Dogs, Help Soldiers and Honor Heroes.”
Partnering US servicemen and women who are struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or physical injuries with service dogs who provide help with physical tasks as well as emotional support, Patriot Rovers– a North Carolina-based non-profit– is helping to heal the hearts of US military members in need with Rovers who have been rescued and named in honor of fallen soldiers.
“We partnered with Purina® Dog Chow® because we are a proud dog family,” said Shawna Thompson, of Thompson Square. “We couldn’t think of a better way to join the community of dog owners, knowing how much a dog would bring to our lives in every situation, from being on a cross-country music tour, to simply spending time at home with family.”
