ADM, a global leader in human, pet, and animal nutrition, has partnered with Pawssion Project – a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming pets to advance pet welfare in the Philippines.
Through ADM Cares, the company is contributing to help build a dedicated 25 sqm space within Pawssion Project’s shelter specifically for paraplegic dogs and cats. This dedicated space will house a hydrotherapy facility to aid in the rescues’ rehabilitation efforts. At the same time, it will support the nourishment of all pets. ADM Pet Nutrition will donate complete and balanced pet food including Ganador® – a high-quality dog food suitable for all breeds and life stages; and Minino® – a professional cat food for felines of all ages and sizes.
“At ADM, we truly believe in the power of community and compassion. Our partnership with Pawssion Project is a testament to our unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in the communities where we are present,” said Clare Torralba, Director, Pet Nutrition, Asia-Pacific excluding China (APeC). “Pawssion Project has an excellent track record in providing care and homes to rescued pets since 2018, and we were inspired to support their purpose and mission, so they can continue their important work to help improve pet welfare in the Philippines,” added Torralba.
The donation from ADM Cares is a significant boost for Pawssion Project, which relies on donations to fund its operations. Malou Perez, Founder of Pawssion Project, added, “We are incredibly grateful for the generous contribution from ADM Cares to support our mission to give stray animals a second chance at a happy life. With their partnership and the donation, we are now able to make our dreams for these pets come true. ADM’s commitment to animal welfare is a shining example of how collective efforts can create a profound impact, and we truly believe that their support will open new doors for our organization to get support from the public and other private companies as well,” added Perez.
Johanna Emata, ADM Philippines Business Development Manager – Pet Nutrition, reiterates the company’s commitment to supporting organizations like Pawssion Project. “We believe that all animals deserve to be treated with love, kindness, and compassion, and we want to help ensure that these shelters have the adequate resources to care for the pets in their custody.” Raymond Molina, Trade Marketing Manager, APeC, added, “We will continue to support organizations that strive for a meaningful cause, and we hope this paves the way for a brighter future for our four-legged friends.”.
