During his grieving period, Joseph noticed the $70 worth of unused bags of dog food in his pantry. He immediately contacted the online pet store,, to return the food and request a refund.

The charitable pet store asked him to donate the unused food to a local shelter and refunded back the amount to him without any hassles.’s initial act was already overflowing with kindness, but the pet store wasn’t done yet. Just days later, Joseph received a delivery of an oil painting of Bailey, painted by pet artist Sharon LaVoie Lamb at the request of the pet store!
