Brand will support non-profit’s no-kill by 2025 mission

RIPON, Wis., Oct. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Speed Queen, an appliance brand with a pedigree of legendary reliability, has embarked on a partnership with Best Friends Animal Society. Speed Queen becomes the organization’s official laundry partner and will join in its mission to save the lives of all shelter animals.

Cody Masluk, vice president and general manager of Speed Queen residential, discusses the brand’s new partnership with Best Friends Animal Society.

“From product development and sales to marketing and manufacturing, Speed Queen is a brand made up of animal lovers,” said Cody Masluk, vice president and general manager of Speed Queen residential. “I’m excited to lend our support to Best Friends, an organization that closely mirrors our values as a company to make a difference each day.”

Speed Queen kicked off the partnership by sending a team of employees to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah to spend a week volunteering their time helping animals. As the official laundry partner, the company will also assist in meeting the laundry equipment needs of the nonprofit at facilities across the country.

“Make no mistake, this is a true partnership. Speed Queen is committed to getting its hands dirty and doing all we can to help animals and join the Best Friends charge of no-kill in the United States by 2025,” Masluk said.

“We could not be more thankful for Speed Queen and this partnership,” said Candi Maciel, Director of Corporate Partnerships for Best Friends. “We’re always in need of fresh blankets and beds for pets in our care, and now we’ll be able to ensure that with our brand-new machines and their support.”
