Acts of Kindness #7: Prairie Paws Animal Shelter

By: Katie

Nothing makes us happier than helping other pet lovers in any way shape form that we can. We’re lucky to have made so many great friends in the pet community that love helping animals just as much as we do. The good people at Prairie Paws Animal Shelter are an extraordinary bunch that we’ve known for quite some time and are always happy to send a few boxes of our recipes to.

 

Prairie Paws is a state-of-the-art shelter located in Ottawa, Kansas, and has been providing care for animals for over 60 years. That’s right, 60 years! Bea Martin Peck, the founder of  Prarie Paws was a lifelong animal lover and helped build the facility in 1949. She and her group of supporters did a lot of wonderful work that continues to this day.

 

Now, Prairie Paws is a private non-profit shelter that operates by the same principles it was founded with: they never euthanize for space. Every single animal that walks through their doors are given a second chance at finding a permanent home.

 

We are so proud and happy to have a great relationship with the good people at Prairie Paws. This past spring, we sent over a few boxes of our Vital and Nature’s Fresh recipes to the shelter for their animals to enjoy. Vicki Whitacre, one of the volunteers sent over a few great photos of the pets. As you can see, they were too busy enjoying the food to look at the camera! Every single one of the animals had nothing but rave reviews for our food, which we couldn’t be happier about! We look forward to the next time we can help these great people.

 

If you know of a pet or family member who deserves an Act of Kindness, we want to hear from you! Email us at online@freshpet.com, or send us a message on Facebook or Twitter. See you next week!
