(DALLAS/MCKINNEY, TX); September 18, 2017 -- The SPCA of Texas and Chipotle Mexican Grill are partnering to support animal welfare in North Texas. Chipotle will be donating half of all Dallas-Fort Worth-area restaurant fundraiser sales on Tuesday, September 19 to the SPCA of Texas, the leading, local, 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal welfare organization in North Texas. The fundraiser provides a way for supporters of the SPCA of Texas to raise money for the organization to support the mission of providing every animal exceptional care and a loving home.
“We take great pride in being the voice for animals who cannot speak for themselves,” said James Bias, President and CEO for the SPCA of Texas. “We’re excited to encourage DFW-area residents to help raise funds for the SPCA of Texas by grabbing lunch or dinner at Chipotle on September 19.”

Steve Ells, Founder, Chairman and CEO, started Chipotle with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in an interactive style allowing people to get exactly what they want. Chipotle seeks out extraordinary ingredients that are not only fresh, but that are raised responsibly, with respect for the animals, land, and people who produce them. Chipotle prepares its food using real, whole ingredients, and is the only national restaurant brand that prepares its food using no added colors, flavors or other industrial additives typically found in fast food. Chipotle opened with a single restaurant in Denver in 1993 and now operates more than 2,300 restaurants. For more information, visit www.Chipotle.com
