St. Louis - A fundraising partnership between Budweiser, Milk-Bone, Dierbergs Markets and Dierbergs customers raised more than $34,000 for Stray Rescue of St. Louis.

The “Be a Bud” promotion ran through August at all Dierbergs stores and had three fund-raising components:
  • Budweiser donated $1 to Stray Rescue for every Budweiser brand 30-pack sold at Dierbergs.
  • Milk-Bone donated 25 cents for every Milk-Bone product sold at Dierbergs.
  • Dierbergs customers contributed to Stray Rescue with donations at check-out.
One-hundred percent of corporate and customer donations went directly to Stray Rescue. The promotion raised $34,457.06 to be applied to Stray Rescue’s emergency medical care fund.

Stray Rescue is a St. Louis not-for-profit organization that rescues stray animals and places them in loving adoptive homes. Stray Rescue abides by a no-kill philosophy.
