Whole Foods Market in Boca Raton is celebrating a dozen years in the community. The grocery chain that sells environmentally conscious foods and sustainable seafood is also a good neighbor, giving back to charitable organizations in the community.
For its birthday celebration, Whole Foods Market is helping the Tri-County Humane Society raise funds to feed and shelter the dogs and cats in their care.
Recently, the Tri-County Humane Society made a trip to Oklahoma to rescue 65 dogs and 15 cats from overcrowded animal shelters in Oklahoma City, making room for those shelters to house animals found in the aftermath of the deadly tornado that leveled many communities.
