Date:2/17/2009

Donates 120 TONS of dog food to shelters across the U.S. during economic crisis

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Yips of joy and barks of thanks resounded across the U.S. this winter as Wellness(R) Natural Pet Food, under the auspices of its charitable arm, the WellPet Foundation, donated 120 TONS of dog food to animal shelters and rescue organizations nationwide. That equates to one bowl of kibble to a half million dogs, from puppies to seniors!

With the nation's economic crisis now affecting Main Street as well as Wall Street, many animal shelters are facing challenges in providing enough food and proper nutrition to record numbers of pets being left in their care. The animal lovers at Wellness, who are dedicated to doing the very best for the pets who depend on us, could think of nothing more meaningful than to provide these dogs, who give us unconditional love, trust and companionship, with a gift of sustenance and love through food.

Donations of Wellness Super5Mix(R) Large Breed Puppy Health, Wellness Super5Mix(R) Large Breed Adult Health, and Wellness Super5Mix(R) Small Breed Adult Health were made to the following shelters:

  • Blue Lion Animal Rescue of Yoder, CO
  • DAWGS N Texas of Dalhart, TX
  • West Valley Animal Shelter in West Valley, UT
  • Homeward Bound Shelter of Mechanicsburg, PA
  • Animal Rescue Food Bank Inc. of Wellsville, PA
  • Aspen Best Friends Animal Sanctuary of Kanab, UT
  • National Greyhound Adoption Program of Philadelphia, PA

The Aspen Best Friends Animal Sanctuary of southwestern Utah was full of happy howls upon receiving their donation of Wellness dog food. "The more than 400 residents of DogTown here at Best Friends are happily enjoying the best in natural nutrition, thanks to the generous donation from Wellness," said John Polis, public relations manager at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. "With so many dogs to take care of here at our sanctuary, we are especially grateful for the kindness shown by Wellness in contributing to the health needs of our animals."

All the tails were wagging with happiness at the National Greyhound Adoption Program in Philadelphia, PA, as the dogs were fed plentifully. "Wellness is such a caring brand; we appreciate their helping us to keep the animals we look after happy, healthy and well-fed during these difficult times," said David Wolf of the National Greyhound Adoption Program.

DAWGS N Texas, an animal wellness group and sanctuary based in Dalhart, Texas, adds a bark of excitement to the happy throng. "We are thrilled to have Wellness make such a meaningful gift of food to our program," said Diane Trull of DAWGS N Texas. "It is reassuring to know that our dogs will be well nourished and sustained as we help them to find loving homes."
