Southeast Pet Supply donation to Coco’s Cupboard Inc

We’d like to give a big shout out and thank you to our client, Southeast Pet Supply who generously donated 4K lbs of food to our local rescue, Coco’s Cupboard, Inc.

Coco’s takes dogs out of kill shelters and trains them to be a service dog for a veteran in need. Currently, they have approximately 60 dogs in their foster system (not all in training for Vets). This donation will release money they would normally have to spend on food. They can now put those monies toward vet bills, spay, and neutering, etc.
