MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – Instead of asking for birthday gifts for herself this year, Delaney chose to collect Pet Supplies Plus gift cards and use them to shop for supplies for local shelter pets.

When the staff at Pet Supplies Plus learned what Delaney was doing, they gave her an extra discount so she would purchase more items. Helping Delaney were her sister, Ella, and grandma Diane.

“We are always inspired when young people give up their own birthday gifts to ask for supplies to help our homeless animals instead,” said MAPS Executive Director Karen Rau.  “In Delaney’s case, she collected Pet Supplies Plus gift cards because she knew PSP has a wide variety of pet supplies and she wanted to shop for the supplies herself.”

“When we learned what Delaney was doing, we thought it was so special and wanted to help her maximize her gift cards,” said Kim Crawford, Store Team Lead at PSP. “As part of the Marshfield community ourselves, we make a point to help give back to animals in need locally and this was clearly a worth cause to support! What a great kid!”

Because of Delaney’s birthday donation, the pets at MAPS will have food, litter, toys, and more during their stay.

“We appreciate our partnership with Pet Supplies Plus and the thoughtful discount given to Delaney to purchase more supplies,” added Rau. “A New Pet Checklist information sheet and coupon from PSP is provided with every adoption at MAPS.”
