Press release from Kiehl's.
Kiehl’s Since 1851 is steeped in traditions of community service and outreach to all of our customers and family members, women and men, big and small, two-legged and four-legged! (We even have a pet wall in our stores to honor our four-legged family members, and a line of products created especially for them.)
It is in this tradition that Kiehl’s Since 1851 in University Village honors our pets and the Seattle community with a Pet Adoption Event and Fund-Raiser to benefit Motley Zoo Animal Rescue, a Seattle organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals locally, nationally and internationally. We’re hosting both an in-store pet adoption, and a week-long fund-raising program to encourage our customers to support Motley Zoo Animal Rescue.
