Iams is sponsoring the SPCA Cincinnati “Bow and Wow” tour starring LeAnn Rimes on Friday, September 17 at Xavier University’s Cintas Center at 7:30 p.m. The opening act will be Tupelo Honey.

The VIP package includes a pre-concert reception at the Schiff Conference Center at Cintas with an appearance by LeAnn Rimes, food and beverage at the reception, and special concert seating.

There will also be an on-line auction at in conjunction with the concert. All proceeds will benefit SPCA Cincinnati.

Also, SPCA Cincinnati’s Northside shelter will be getting a makeover thanks to Iams. On Thursday, September 16, Iams employees will roll up their sleeves to paint, plant, repair at SPCA’s shelter at 3949 Colerain. The makeover of the 1964 facility will not only improve life for animals at the shelter, it will also enhance the adoption experience for people who give the animals their forever homes.

“This makeover supports Iams dedication to animal welfare as well as supports SPCA’s mission of turning no animal away,” says Jason Taylor, Manager External Relations P&G Pet Care.

“Iams is a great partner and supporter of SPCA,” says SPCA President and CEO Harold Dates. “This will help make the shelter more inviting and comfortable for the animals and bring in more adopters.”
