‘I am honored to be a part of something that I’m passionate about.’

(Press Release) OGDEN, UT – American Nutrition, a custom manufacturer that produces pet food and treats for branded companies and retailers, announced that Business Manager Tamara Reddy has been appointed to the Arizona Pet Project’s board of directors, effective July 1. Reddy will play an instrumental role with the organization as its mission expands to include providing resources for families in need of financial support to care for their pets.

“I am honored to be a part of something that I’m passionate about,” said Reddy. “I cannot imagine having to face the difficult decision to give up a furry member of my family due to financial strain. It would be heart-breaking. Providing much-needed resources to families faced with this difficult decision will be incredibly fulfilling personally – but will also enable these families to stay whole. Whether it be connecting them with housing resources, to one of our pet food pantry partners, or covering veterinary expenses, our overall goal is to keep these families together and keep these very loved pets from entering the shelter. I’m looking forward to continuing the good work of the Arizona Pet Project and am thrilled to be joining such a talented and diverse board who share a passion for this cause.”

Reddy first became involved with the AZ Pet Project in 2003 when she was invited to the organization’s annual Hero Awards. In 2014, she began volunteering to help with the silent auction and sponsorship development associated with the same event. American Nutrition became a sponsor of the annual Hero Awards in 2015.

New Hampshire legislators are considering a ban on “no pets” notices in property listings.

Proposed legislation would forbid landlords and home sellers from barring pet owners, the Concord Monitor reports.

They could make rules related to pet deposits, noise control, sanitation and safety, according to the newspaper. But they could set make rules based on size, breed or appearance.

The legislation was proposed by state Rep. Ellen Read, a Democrat from Newmarket. It has drawn opposition from some landords who say it could lead to unsanitary conditions as well as allergy problems for some residents.

But Julia Seeley, New Hampshire state director for the Humane Society, said her organization supports the bill.

We just strongly believe that a family should not be torn apart simply over housing,” she said.
