MARS HELLAS – and more specifically, the brand Pedigree – which, in September 2019, supported our Pet-Assisted Thepary Program via the action/campaign #StasouPlaiMou (i.e. Stand by Me). With this campaign, MARS HELLAS communicated to the public how magnificent therapy dogs are, as well as the power a therapy dog has to change people’s lives. In parallel, MARS HELLAS offered to SAPT Hellas financial aid in support of the continuation of the Program and pet food for the dogs of our team.
