In an innovative approach to tackling the homeless dog problem in our community, FreeHand, a pet food company committed to “conscious consumerism” and saving the lives of homeless dogs, has pledged to donate a pound of food to a local rescue or shelter for every pound of FreeHand dog food they sell.
In the DFW metroplex, the rescue groups that will benefit from this initiative are Straydog, Inc., Animal Rescue of Texas (ART), Greyhound Adoption League of Texas (GALT), Paws in the City, and Take Me Home Pet Rescue. As defined by the program, the amount of pet food they will receive is directly proportional to the amount of their pet food that is purchased by the public. Linda Arnold of Straydog, Inc. is very pleased with the program’s success thus far. ”FreeHand’s donated food comes with no strings attached,” Arnold continued. ”More important, our dogs are doing very well on the food.”
“FreeHand’s cause-related corporate philosophy comes at a critical time for rescue organizations and animal shelters,” FreeHand Managing Director Tom Bagamane says, adding that approximately four million pets are euthanized each year in shelters across the country and the problem has only worsened during these tough economic times. ”With pet food as one of their largest expenses, overcrowded rescue organizations and shelters are in desperate need of support,” he concluded.
FreeHand describes their products as “super-premium” pet food, and has been veterinarian-approved and endorsed for its superior quality and taste. FreeHand pet foods are made in the U.S.A. by Texas Farm Products in Nacogdoches, Texas using high-quality ingredients and does not contain wheat, gluten, corn, or soy.
FreeHand pet food is available at several retailers in the DFW area, including Paradise 4 Paws, Canine Commissary, Dee’s Doggie Den, The Pooch Patio, Barney’s Ranch, The Petropolitan, Downtown Pawz, and Metro Pet. For a complete list of retailers, you can visit the FreeHand website at www.lendafreehand.com. You can also purchase FreeHand pet food online at LendaFreeHand.com/dogfood or by calling (855) GIVEBAK.
