"All you need is love" .... that's what The Beatles tell us, along with countless other songs, poems, novels, movies and greeting cards. February is fast approaching, and with it comes all the flowers, candy, teddy bears and songs filled with love and romance. But love isn't something just for humans; it's for animals too. The power of love is not limited to how many legs you have, or if you can sing about it; everything great and small, furry or with scales, deserves love.
February is 'Love Month' for us at the Amelia Biscuit Company, and for two very special reasons: Amelia and Rosie. Both little ladies arrived into our lives in February; Amelia came from the Brant SPCA and Rosie from a Boston Terrier Breeder. They not only brought tons of love and joy, but also helped to change the dog biscuit industry in Canada for the better.
Amelia is our very own 'rags to riches' story, speaking to the power of adopting from your local SPCA or humane society. Every February, we like to celebrate the anniversary of her arrival by doing good things for animals less fortunate. In the past, we have hosted auctions, given away food, held cookie parties at the store, and donated money to rescue. This year is no different.
To kick off Love Month we are giving away free dog food for rescues. The folks at Redpaw Dog Food have generously provided us with bags of their X-Series food - Puppy, Fitness, and Perform varieties. Their formulas are developed specifically for active dogs, and each is designed to give your dog the maximum fitness and health benefits for their active lifestyle. Whether your dog runs marathons and goes hiking with you, or just enjoys running about the yard or dog park, this food will help give them the energy and stamina they need. It's not just another dog food - it's fitness food!
Benefits of feeding the X-Series foods include:
lean, athletic body
exceptional energy, stamina and recovery
less panting & drooling in high temperatures; more comfortable in cold temperatures
shiny, soft coat with less shedding
healthy feet and nails for comfort walking or running on tough surfaces
X-Series foods include whey protein, beet pulp, pork blood meal, oatmeal and pearled barley, and a proprietary blend of amino and fatty acids, as well as probiotics, vitamins and minerals. With lean cuts of chicken, pork and fish, and NO corn, wheat or soy, the X-Series foods are highly digestible and will satisfy both the picky and piggy eaters.
The Redpaw food donation is open to registered rescues only (with a tax ID) and those able to come to the Amelia Biscuit Company store to pick up the food or arrange to have it shipped. The only thing Redpaw wants in return is a 'thank you' mention on social media. For further details on this, please contact us at the store via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (519 442 7373).
At Amelia Biscuit we bake the happy into healthy dog treats …. and spread the love!
