Wellness® Natural Pet Food Gives Big; Deep in the Heart of Texas

Tewksbury, Massachusetts (September 17, 2009) - Wellness® Natural Pet Food received a thundering round of “paw-pplause” this week after making a donation, under the auspices of its charitable arm the WellPet Foundation®, of nearly 17 TONS of dog food and snacks to DAWGS N Texas animal shelter.

DAWGS in Texas is an animal wellness group and sanctuary based in Dalhart, Texas whose primary goal is to find loving and safe homes for the animals in their care. They also seek to create awareness about the need to reduce the number of neglected and discarded animals by providing assistance, education and promoting spaying and neutering. The WellPet Foundation is dedicated to supporting groups like DAWGS N Texas that are responsible, passionate and committed to helping pets live longer, happier, healthier lives. In making this meaningful donation, the WellPet Foundation will enable the residents of DAWGS in Texas to thrive through the power of natural nutrition.

"It is reassuring to know that the 800 dogs currently residing with us will be well nourished and we are thrilled to have Wellness make such a substantial donation to our program”, said Diane Trull, of DAWGS N Texas. “Our dogs and puppies thrive on Wellness Natural Pet Food and it truly makes a huge difference in how they look and feel. We all thank you!”

The canines at DAWGS N Texas will be dining on Wellness Super5Mix® Large Breed Puppy Health, Wellness Super5Mix® Large Breed Adult Health, Wellness Simple Food Solutions®, Wellness WellBars®, Wellness Pure Rewards®, and Wellness WellBites®.
