Editors note: There are two photos associated with this press release.

Pet Valu is raising mammoth support for pets in need this April with the help of Morgan ― the world's tallest female dog! A five year old Great Dane from Southwestern Ontario, this gentle giant is the Guinness-record world's tallest female dog and one of Canada's biggest advocates for Pet Appreciation Month.

Measuring 38.6" at the shoulder and weighing 218 lbs, Morgan will be visiting select Pet Valu locations during Pet Adoption Weekend from April 11-13th to lend a PAW for homeless pets. She's also encouraging pet lovers to visit Pet Valu stores across Canada to show their support by buying an official PAW for $1, $2, $5 or $10 or donating much needed products and supplies.

Now in its fourth year, Pet Appreciation Month raises money and supplies to support abandoned, homeless and abused animals in communities across Canada. 100% of the products and dollars are donated to local pet charities, rescues and shelters.

"With the help of our customers and fellow pet lovers across Canada we've raised more than $2 million dollars and found forever homes for thousands of pets in need," says Julie Johnston, VP Merchandising & Marketing, Pet Valu. "With Morgan as our Pet Appreciation Month ambassador, we're hoping to surpass our fundraising goals to help even more homeless pets in Canada," she adds.
