Tomlinson's is a 3rd generation famliy owned pet food/supply store that's been rockin Austin for 71 years! They pride themselves as a "naturally smarter pet supplies" store with 14 locations around town. Every year they do a Pound 4 Pound 'foodraiser' that collects pet food for local animal rescues. It's easy. Black Friday through Christmas Eve, when you 'buy' a bag of food at checkout from a Tomlinson's, one of their manufactures will match the bag by donation! Last year they raised over 150,000 pounds of pet food (6 18-Wheelers) to feed over 450 rescue pets for the entire year.
This year, Tomlinson's wants to break the record of pounds of food collected and help over 30 local rescues! Scott and Kate, from Tomlinson's, stopped by Local Insights to tell you all about the Pound 4 Pound event. Spread the word!
Tomlinson's needs YOUR help to break last years record of 150,000 pounds of pet food for Central Texas rescues!
