[Hometown, PA]: Today, Highwood USA announced a new partnership with the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF). This announcement coincides with the release of a “docu-video”, https://youtu.be/oFQ6v1vXJuA, that will allow Highwood to help promote the goals of, and spread awareness for SDF. This is the first in a series of dog-themed videos by Highwood USA called “Real Tails”, in which they plan to share their love of our faithful four-legged friends and stories that show how our lives are enriched by pets.
“SDF is an incredible organization and one that we are so proud to support” said Craig Smith, Strategic Marketing Director for Highwood USA. “It is an inspiring story and here at Highwood USA we aim to do whatever we can to raise awareness for, and help support SDF’s goals. Each time one of our Outdoor Living products is purchased, the new owner can leave us a short product review and ask that we donate $5 on their behalf to SDF.”
