FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BALTIMORE—(September 19, 2016)—To help homeless pets in Maryland, Chipotle Mexican Grill will be donating 50% of all proceeds to the Maryland SPCA on qualifying purchases made on Thursday, September 29, 2016 at ALL Chipotle restaurants in Maryland.
“We are so grateful to Chipotle Mexican Grill for allowing us this opportunity to save even more unwanted, unloved and sometimes injured pets who urgently need our help,” said Tina Regester, director of communications at the Maryland SPCA. “The Maryland SPCA doesn’t receive any operating funding from the government or the ASPCA, but relies on community support to help approximately 15,000 pets each year. This fundraiser can really make a difference in the lives of pets and people we serve.”
All proceeds will be used to provide safe shelter, nutritious meals, vaccinations, spay/neuter procedures, enrichment and any other medical care homeless pets need until they are adopted into loving, new homes. There is never a time limit to how long a pet can remain at the MD SPCA. The average cost of caring for a homeless pet at the MD SPCA is $500.
In order for purchases to qualify for this important fundraiser, restaurant patrons are asked to 1) Mention to the cashier that they came to Chipotle to support the Maryland SPCA, 2) Share a printed flyer of the event to cashier, or 3) Show the cashier Maryland SPCA’s FB event from their smart phones.
