Happy Giving Tuesday! The annual celebration of do-goodery takes place December 1 this year, encouraging citizens across the world to perform acts of generosity—anything from volunteering in your community to donating to causes you care about. And what if we told you that you can be part of this global giving movement just by spoiling your pet? That’s right: Chewy’s making it possible to give back and give your pets all the things they need and deserve at the same time.
We’ve teamed up with Greater Good Charities to support the important work of pet shelters and rescues all across the country, and this Giving Tuesday, you can help us make an even bigger difference. Chewy will match the dollar amount of orders placed on December 1 (aka Giving Tuesday 2020) in a product donation to Greater Good Charities up to $2 million. These life-changing supplies will go to shelters and rescues, pet food banks, animal welfare organizations and more. The idea is simple: You shop, we donate, and pets across the country—including your own—get the things they need to live their best lives.
There’s never been a better time to stock up on the supplies your pet loves. And if you want to do even more, shop a shelter or rescue’s Wish List. Chewy will match those purchases, too, doubling your product donation—one from you, and one from us.
If you’re looking for the best ways to spoil your pet, we talked to the experts who work with pets every day—shelter and rescue workers—to find out what products pets really love. Read on to find out about their favorite products on their Chewy Wish Lists, which let you send the items shelters and rescues need right to their doorstep.

Fancy Feast Gravy Lovers Variety Pack Cat Food
Dealing with cat who’s a picky eater? Margie Harkins, a volunteer with Project MEOW cat rescue in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, knows the struggle. That’s why she added Fancy Feast Gravy Lovers variety pack to Project MEOW’s wish list. With three different flavors, there’s bound to be one to please even the most discerning feline palate, she says. Plus, she adds, the smaller cans can come in handy while you’re trying to figure out what your cat likes. “There isn’t as much waste opening a smaller can!”
Pedigree High Protein Beef & Lamb Dog Food
If your dog is on the move non-stop, they might have the soul of a Greyhound. According to Tracey Bouchard, a volunteer at the Greyhound rescue Project Racing Home in Randleman, North Carolina, the active lifestyle of their dogs means they sometimes need a slightly different diet than your average pup. “These guys are used to eating a high-protein diet,” she says. (That’s what gives them the energy they need for zoomies galore.) So it’s no surprise that high-protein dog food like Pedigree High Protein Beef & Lamb Flavor Adult Dry Dog Food is an “always needed” item on their Wish List.
Greenies Pill Pockets Dog Treats
