Big Round of Paws! Weis helping homeless pets in need

May 6, 2009 - Amy Jo Hanna-Eckenrode
Please give a A BIG ROUND OF PAWS to Weis Markets!

The grocery store chain (and I’m a proud Weis shopper!) is featuring Paws for Pets, a chain-wide program offering customers the opportunity to donate pet food and supplies to local animal shelters during the month of May.

Donations collected in each store will be distributed to local pet shelters to help homeless pets in need. The program continues through the end of May at all Weis Market stores, including the company's Kings and Mr. Z's stores located in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia.


1. Purchase the items you want to give. (list of requested items listed below or are available at each market)
2. Cashiers will place an “I GAVE! You can too” sticker on the items before adding them to the Paws for Pets collection cart.
