TEWKSBURY, Mass., Jan. 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On January 16,
WellPet Foundation, makers of Wellness, Holistic Select, Old Mother Hubbard and Eagle Pack natural pet food brands donated a large assortment of cat and dog food to Atlanta-area animal rescue groups,
Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends, Inc. and Angels Among Us Pet Rescue.

WellPet, headquartered in Tewksbury, MA, donated the food while in Atlanta for a team meeting.

"We're happy we were able to donate the dog and cat food used in displays at the meeting to two deserving Atlanta non-profits," said Chanda Leary-Coutu, Senior Manager, Marketing Communications.

The volunteer-run non-profits WellPet chose for the donation are dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in Georgia. Angels Among Us Pet Rescue relies on volunteers to foster homeless pets
until they are adopted. Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends also uses a network of foster homes and adoption centers, and subsidizes over 200 spay/neuters a year for Atlanta pet owners.

"It's fantastic to receive a donation of pet food from WellPet," said Susan Leisure, Director, Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends, Inc. "With these types of donations, we're able to directly support the dogs and
cats in our adoption program with good nutrition."
