BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - Jul 2, 2012) - PetSmart is a familiar brand to many Americans, who know it both as a leading chain of pet supply stores, and also as a venue where homeless animals are taken in and, ideally, adopted into good homes with loving owners. Recently, the company celebrated a major milestone, announcing that more than five million homeless animals had been adopted from PetSmart locations across the country. The company celebrated this milestone with in-store events, held at locations across the country. The milestone, and the in-store events, garnered the attention and the praise of other companies, including National Fidelity Mortgage (NFM, Inc.).
NFM, Inc. a multi-state mortgage lender, with headquarters located in the Baltimore region was established in 1998. The company has a long history of community activism, including work done on behalf of numerous local animal adoption agencies and shelters. The company has responded to the PetSmart milestone with a news release of its own, praising the store's goodwill toward animals and ultimately encouraging other companies to follow PetSmart's example of animal-related activism.
The press statement includes a comment from Chessa Marshall, who serves as a Loan Officer Assistant at NFM, Inc. "Earlier in the month of June, PetSmart and PetSmart Charities celebrated 5 million pet adoptions since 1994," explains Marshall. "Knowing that more than 4 million pets are euthanized each year, NFM, Inc. works hard to follow PetSmart's example, seeking to raise awareness and prevent pet abandonment."
Marshall's statement of support continues, with some specific actions taken by the company she works for. "NFM, Inc. is committed to improving the lives of all animals by assisting our employees in their personal endeavors and fundraising for community efforts. By providing our employees with pet insurance, access to group discounts to top veterinarians, and fundraising for local animal care efforts, NFM, Inc. is working to bring awareness to the increasing need of pet adoptions and improved care." Marshall goes on to talk about how "a few years ago NFM, Inc. adopted two cats that now live in our offices and are part of the NFM 'family.'"
Marshall goes on to highlight some of the ways in which her company has shown its support for pets and pet owners, even within its local Baltimore community. "For the past few years, NFM, Inc. has participated in the Maryland SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) walk, in which we consistently raised the support funds needed to meet our financial goal," says Marshall. "NFM, Inc. works hard to support pets in need and we appreciate and commend PetSmart and PetSmart Charities for their work in bringing abandoned pets into a nurturing home. Theirs is an example that any company could be proud to follow."
