A Delaware County animal shelter has teamed up with a Lehigh Valley mead producer to add “pug” shots and other dog and cat images on the craft beverage cans, writes Max Bennett for patch.com.
The Providence Animal Center in Media, the Colony Meadery and the Brandywine Valley SPCA will feature adoptable dogs and cats on the next cans of mead.
The cans will be available on line March 16, then on March 20 at the Meadery’s Allentown location at 905 Harrison Street, Suite 115.
A portion of the can sales benefit the two shelters.
Providence Animal Center, Brandywine Valley SPCA and the meadery are connected through the podcast “Rights to Ricky Sanchez, about the Philadelphia 76ers, hosted by Spike Eskin and Mike Levin.
“Providence Animal Center is honored to have our pets featured on Colony Meadery’s cans,” said Justina Calgiano, director of Advancement & Public Relations at Providence Animal Center. “This sort of collaboration helps us reach a larger population of potential adopters, ones who may have never considered adoption. In essence, these cans are truly lifesaving.”
The first 76 purchasers of a case will receive a poster “signed” by a pet of the Meadery’s management team.
