2022's Pizza Paws
We are so thankful for the collaboration of our customers, our community, our team members, and eight different Little Caesars franchisees in WV this year. 160 K-9 handlers now have new essentials kits, because of your generosity and support.
Little Caesars Pizza is excited to announce the kickoff of our annual Pizza Pizza Paws Campaign!
During the month of April, we will be hosting a fundraising campaign at local Little Caesars locations to provide an “Essentials Kit” to police K-9 handlers in West Virginia and surrounding departments in Kentucky & Ohio. A few items included in the kits; a tactical collar, high-grade leash, water bowl, kong toy and a water backpack.
To help create awareness for our $30,000 goal. We have posted campaign thermometers inside 55 Little Caesars locations (48 in WV, 4 in KY and 3 in OH ). This important campaign is to increase support and awareness for the police K-9 divisions in our communities. Some of the K-9 divisions are funded by donations and personal contributions, mostly by the handlers themselves.
“It’s an honor for us to help support the police K-9 Divisions. From tracking, drug searches and criminal apprehension the K-9 officers are a great value that makes our communities a safer place to live and work.”. Vicki Dunn-Marshall, Franchisee and Owner, VDM Management Group.
“We as a community can step up and help. We want to thank our customers for their support so far and a big thank you to the officers and their K-9 partners for putting their lives on the line daily”. Sabrina Donahue-Moore, Marketing Director. “We are so thankful to collaborate with EVERY Little Caesars in the state of West Virginia for this year's Pizza Paws campaign”.
“Thanks to the continued support of Little Caesar’s and their Pizza Paws campaign.. their support in helping our police k9 teams throughout this state with much-needed equipment that couldn’t be purchased without their efforts and your assistance.” Doug Adams, President of the West Virginia Police Canine Association.
This is the 3rd Pizza Paws Campaign. In 2019, 26 Little Caesars locations (VDM Management) fundraised to provide 85 police K-9 handlers with first aid kits. The 2020 campaign was canceled due to COVID concerns. Last year's campaign supplied DOGTRA GPS tracking collars to over 100 handlers in 70 police departments.
We believe that although small in comparison to their everyday operation, we can assist the police K-9 divisions and help fill a void.
