January 11, 2018
CHARLOTTE, NC - (January 11, 2018) - XOOM Energy, LLC is pleased to announce as part of their 5 Saves Lives campaign, a donation of over $40,000 has been made to PetSmart Charities, the largest funder of animal welfare in North America. XOOM Energy and PetSmart Charities announced their partnership in December of 2016, with the goal to help end pet homelessness and find shelter pets their forever homes.
As part of the 5 Saves Lives campaign, XOOM Energy, who offers electricity and natural gas solutions through their wholly owned subsidiaries, began offering customers the RescueLock 12 fixed rate plan, with five percent of their monthly XOOM Energy charges being donated to PetSmart Charities.
“Since our launch of the RescueLock 12 fixed rate plan, we have been overwhelmed with the positive response by our customers and the level of excitement about having five percent of their monthly XOOM Energy spend being donated to PetSmart Charities,” states Chris Phillips, XOOM Energy’s Chief Operating Officer. “According to PetSmart Charities, the estimated cost to save a pet’s life through adoption is about $25. That’s more than 1,600 pets in need that our generous customers will potentially help through this donation. We look forward to increasing that number as we continue to grow our partnership with PetSmart Charities.”
“XOOM Energy has taken great initiative to inspire their customers to support pets in need with the 5 Saves Lives campaign,” said David Haworth, DVM, Ph.D., president of PetSmart Charities. “With the help of passionate companies like theirs, PetSmart Charities is able to fulfill our mission to connect even more people and pets across North America.”
