[/caption]We love the holidays. The hustle and bustle, exchanging gifts, the festive lights, the opportunity to "treat" our pets--everyone here at Natural Balance embraces the season. We also celebrate the excitement of the New Year with our Rose Parade float, working hard each year to outdo ourselves in the hopes of entertaining kids--and kids at heart--around the world.
But in the midst of all of this holiday activity, we're keenly aware that for some pets, there may not be a treat. Or a blanket. Or, worse still, enough food. Animals deserve all of our love, respect and support every day, but especially at this time of year, we need your help.
Rescues and shelters across the country work hard every day to find homes for hundreds of thousands of homeless dogs, cats and small animals. Their need for an added $10 for food or $25 for training or $100 for medical care can help buy a homeless pet the extra time they need to find their forever home. This need is amplified during the holiday season, a time when fewer people may be visiting shelters or adoption events.
Back when Dick Van Patten co-founded Natural Balance Pet Foods in 1989, he knew that animals needed the support of pet parents and pet food companies, too. We want to bring a bit of happiness and hope to displaced pets this season. That's why we're donating a $1 to Tree of Hope for every "like" we receive on our Facebook
wall from Dec. 14 through Jan. 2. Our goal? $25,000!!! It's ambitious--but we believe that there are thousands of other pet lovers out there like you who would like to help us achieve our goal.
So that's why I'm asking you to do me a favor: share this post. Every share could potentially mean one more meal, a new leash, or much-needed medical care for an animal whose only wish is to be adopted.
Finally, if you're a rescue mom or dad, thank you for helping save a pet. And if you volunteer with local rescues or shelters, please accept our deepest thanks. We appreciate your hard work and dedication to help animals in need. From all of us at Natural Balance Pet Foods, thanks for helping us help animals!
