Global Pet Foods’ 11th annual “Show Us Your Heart” Campaign takes place from February 10-26, 2017. For a fourth consecutive year, the store at 3191 Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven (Ottawa, Ontario) has chosen Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind as their charity of choice for this campaign. Global Pet Foods and a national dog food company will match every $1 donation, which will be presented to Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. Other contests, events and promotions will occur in-store. This is a national campaign by Global Pet Foods helping various animal shelters. The Barrhaven location has received special permission from their head office to forgo collecting for a shelter, and instead collect funds for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. Global Pet Foods Barrhaven location is located just 6-kms from the National Training Centre of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. Thanks to the Barrhaven location for choosing Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. We ask the general public to stop in to support the campaign and show us your heart.
