Beltrami Humane Society, Lueken’s Village Foods partner for pets


BEMIDJI — People who adopt a cat or dog at the Beltrami Humane Society can start out with a free bag of pet food through a partnership with Lueken’s Village Foods.

The idea came from Nick Moe, advertising manager at Lueken’s, and Jarrod Whaley, grocery manager.

“(Whaley) had the idea that he wanted to redo our pet food aisle,” Moe said. “We were trying to think of different ways we could really bring it to life. He’s an avid animal lover, and I’ve had pets in the past.”
