WELLNESS® NATURAL PET FOOD AIDS ANIMAL RELIEF IN JAPAN WITH DONATION TO WORLD VETS

Wellness® Natural Pet Food, the complete line of healthy, natural food and snacks for dogs and cats made with carefully chosen, authentic ingredients, recently donated to World Vets to help aid the pet rescue efforts in Japan.

Founded in 2006, World Vets is a non-government organization (NGO) that provides veterinary aid around the globe, in collaboration with animal advocacy groups, foreign governments, U.S. and foreign military groups and veterinary professionals abroad.  Since the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan, World Vets has shipped shelter supplies and veterinary supplies and equipment to the affected communities, as well as provided direct veterinary assistance to the animals impacted by the disaster.  

“We appreciate the donation provided by Wellness Pet Food, which will help fund shipping of supplies and staff deployments,” said Cathy King, CEO, World Vets.  “We anticipate that our efforts to help the animal and veterinary communities in Japan will continue for some time, and are truly thankful to the partners who have aided our cause.”

The donation was made by Wellness through the company’s WellPet Foundation®, which has a mission of giving back to the world we share with our pets by supporting organizations and activities dedicated to the well-being of dogs and cats.

“Wellness has an unwavering commitment to provide the very best for the pets who depend on us,” said Laura Marseglia, brand manager for Wellness.  “We are proud to donate to the World Vets organization and help provide care and supplies to those pets in need.”
