Freshpet, America’s Only Fresh Pet Food, Encourages People to Open Their Hearts to Abandoned Dogs in Detroit

Secaucus, NJ (September 2013) – Freshpet, the only company making fresh, refrigerated food for dogs and cats nationwide, is teaming up with Detroit Dog Rescue to help encourage adoption of the growing number of stray dogs in Detroit. As families in Detroit struggle to meet financial obligations, many are unable to continue to care for their pets, leaving tens of thousands of dogs abandoned on the streets. As America’s largest bankrupt city, Detroit has over 70,000 vacant structures – many now occupied by these homeless dogs, in need of a warm home and loving family. The problem continues to grow, and organizations like Detroit Dog Rescue can only do so much to help rescue, care for, and find homes for these homeless dogs. Freshpet hopes to help alleviate the problem by encouraging people to adopt a new family member from Detroit Dog Rescue. For every dog adopted, Freshpet will provide new pet owners with a leash, collar, and a week’s supply of their locally sourced, nutritious foods. Freshpet will also donate $2000 in much-needed funds to the Detroit Dog Rescue. "At Freshpet, we treat our dogs like family. It’s devastating to imagine having to give up your dog, but even more so knowing that there are thousands of dogs without homes in the Detroit area,” says Scott Morris, Co-Founder and President of Freshpet. "We admire the efforts of organizations like Detroit Dog Rescue, and want to support them in their effort to find homes for these deserving dogs. This is one small step towards fixing a large problem, but we believe that if we are able to help even one dog find a home, the effort has not gone to waste.” To find out how you can adopt a dog from the Detroit Dog Rescue or donate other much needed items– visit XXXXX or call XXXX, and join in the efforts to rescue and bring love to the many dogs that roam the city of Detroit.
