Dogs With No Names Helps Feed Undernourished Dogs throughout Southern Alberta through Support of Pet Planet.

Over 16,000 pounds of (premium) dog food has been distributed to dogs on First Nations reserves.

(PRWEB) August 16, 2012 - Pet Planet, in partnership with Horizon Pet Nutrition, provided over 1000 lb. of food to Dogs With No Names.

Established in 2011, Dogs With No Names is a scientific pilot program working to combat the number of homeless dogs on First Nations reserves in southern Alberta through the use of contraceptive implants. In addition to their efforts in contraception, Dogs With No Names distributes donated dog food from Horizon Pet Nutrition and Pet Planet health stores to undernourished dogs throughout two First Nations reserves in southern Alberta.

To date, this self-funded and volunteer based program has received over 16,000 lb. of dog food for distribution to undernourished dogs. 1,000 lbs of Horizon Pet Nutrition premium pet food was distributed on the reserve throughout June 2012, with another 1000 lbs planned over the next quarter.

Dogs have a short and difficult life without adequate food, water and shelter available to them. This is especially true on our First Nations reserves, which experience northern climates with severe winter months. While adoptions of reserve dogs are possible and encouraged through rescue groups, unfortunately, they are limited to younger pups and tamer dogs that can make the transition to a companion dog. There is also a shortage of welcoming homes.

It was in the hopes of reducing the suffering of these dogs that the Dogs With No Names initiative was born. Pet Planet health stores are devoted to supporting worthy causes such as this and excited to continue this important partnership.
