Brookshire Grocery Co. presented a donation of more than $13,000 to the SPCA of East Texas on Friday. The donation was made using proceeds from Brookshire’s National Pet Month program.
“We are absolutely thrilled with the generosity of Brookshire Grocery Company,” said Deborah Dobbs, president and founder of the SPCA of East Texas. “We strive to save as many animals as possible every month, but the work is never done. This donation comes at a critical time due to the numerous litters of abandoned puppies we have taken in over the spring and summer months.”
In celebration of National Pet Month in May, Brookshire’s stores throughout Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas donated 1 percent of qualifying pet item purchases to the SPCA.
