OnFocus – Last week, the Central Wisconsin Country Store donated “Welcome Goodie Bags” for adopters at the Marshfield Area Pet Shelter.
The bags contained samples of puppy food or dog food, treats, toys, coupons for use at the store and a booklet to help new owners with their pets.
Kim Ohaugherty of the Central Wisconsin Country Store said they wanted to help new owners know that there is a place for them to get pet food and supplies locally.
“We wanted to join a partnership there,” Ohaugherty said. “We wanted people to know that we’re here for them for their dog food needs.”
In the age of sitting on couches and ordering products, the experience that employees at the Central Wisconsin Country Store is something that can’t be purchased online. The bags were more than just a promotion as Ohaugherty said the store just wants people to know that their products are tested and approved by the employees themselves.
“Everybody who works here is an animal lover,” Ohaugherty said. “The items that we have here, we try very hard to test everything out and investigate it so that we know what we’re selling. We want to make sure that we’re only selling the best quality of products.”
In a Facebook post, Marshfield Area Pet Shelter thanked the Country Store for their generous gift.
“Thank you to Central Wisconsin Country Store – Provision Partners Cooperative for putting together these “Welcome Goodie Bags” for us to give to our adopters,” the post said. “What a thoughtful idea!”
