Wishing Wells . . . Coins for Pets!

coins-for-pets-2015-sidebar2

Most people treat their pets just like family. They show them love and affection; make sure they have plenty of water and nutritional food; and get plenty of exercise. In fact, you probably have spent plenty of time in our pet aisles trying to decide on just the perfect toy, food, or treat for your furry friend.

Unfortunately that is not the case for all pets. But the good news is there is a safe refuge for those animals that have become lost, left behind, or abused . . . and they are our Local Animal Shelters! Acme Fresh Market proudly supports our local animal shelters through our Coins for Pets Wishing Wells! 100% of the money donated by our customers is given to our local animal shelters!
