Donate Food to Shelter Dogs with a Click

In September I attended Blog Paws West in Denver, a conference for Pet Bloggers. It was a truly inspirational event. My life felt transformed when I heard a panel of women speaking that represented “Be the Change for Pets.” I realized during that session how much one person can make a difference in the life of many animals. Meeting hundreds of  people at BlogPaws West that were making a huge difference in the lives of animals was humbling, to put it mildly.

Personally, as co-founder of Through a Dog’s Ear, my mission is to improve the lives of dogs worldwide by providing sound therapy to canines that calms their nervous systems and relieves anxiety issues. We donate music to shelters and rescue groups internationally and have heard from many shelters how much of a quieter environment is being created. Visitors stay longer, staff and volunteers are focused and more productive, dogs are comforted and calmer, and adoptions are increasing in those shelters.

Helping shelter animals is near and dear to my heart. So, when I read a few days ago that Anthony Holloway, Founder and President of K9 Cuisine, was planning on donating 5,000 lbs of dog food to shelters if the K9Cuisine Facebook page reached 5,000 fans by October 31, I decided that I wanted to help. I had the pleasure of meeting Anthony at BlogPaws in person, although we originally met on social media when I noticed his clever tweets on twitter. K9Cuisine is a a company dedicated to shipping premium organic dog food and treats with stellar customer service.
