NEPTUNE CITY, N.J., November 28, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nylabone, an iconic brand in the Central Garden & Pet Company portfolio (NASDAQ: CENT) (NASDAQ: CENTA), has donated chew toys, treats, and monetary contributions valued at almost $1,000,000 to animal welfare groups in 2023.

Throughout the year, Nylabone provided tens of thousands of durable chew toys and wholesome chew treats to more than 500 organizations. These donations help teach shelter dogs non-destructive chewing habits as they prepare to be adopted, comfort pups while they transition to new homes, and even ease service dogs’ stress as they train to help individuals needing assistance.

"Dogs bring so much love into our lives, which is why we're passionate about ensuring their lives are filled with love, too," said Glen S. Axelrod, President and CEO of Nylabone. "The organizations we proudly support care for dogs in many special ways, but above all, we share the mutual calling to better our furry friends' lives and nurture that special bond between dogs and people."

Nylabone Cares partners with hundreds of local and national charities while maintaining long-standing relationships with American Humane, Guiding Eyes for the Blind, Southeastern Guide Dogs, America’s VetDogs, Monmouth County SPCA, Guide Dogs for the Blind, and Leader Dogs for the Blind. Nylabone has also partnered with National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. for the fifth consecutive year, donating $1 for every custom-made pink Power Chew toy sold.

In addition to ongoing donations throughout the year, Nylabone made a special $10,000 Valentine’s Day contribution to American Humane’s Pups4Patriots™ program in honor of U.S. military veterans. The gift supported dogs needing homes as they train to become lifesaving companions for veterans returning to civilian life.

In May, the brand donated $25,000 to Best Friends Animal Society—a leading national animal welfare organization on a mission to end the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters by 2025. The donation coincided with National Pet Month, a time to celebrate the many ways dogs and other furry friends benefit our lives.

In the aftermath of the Maui wildfires in August, Nylabone donated chew toys to the courageous dogs of the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation. These highly skilled rescuers were deployed to find missing people on the island and bring them to safety. Shortly after, the dogs were also deployed to northern Florida to assist in Hurricane Idalia’s wake.

These contributions from Nylabone support the Central Garden & Pet Impact strategy, which is dedicated to making positive changes through philanthropic work, focusing on protecting our planet, cultivating our communities, and empowering our employees.
