(PRESS RELEASE) HATFIELD, PA — Annamet Petfoods Inc., in partnership with ElleVet’s Pets In Need project, has donated over 3000 pounds of dog food, cat food and treats to pets of homeless and displaced people across California.

Created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pets In Need Project set out to provide free veterinary medical care, supplies, and food to pets of people experiencing homelessness or economic hardship. For over two months, ElleVet’s mobile relief vehicle has traveled to cities across California with a team of Veterinarians and pet nutrition specialists to lend a helping hand to the most vulnerable populations of animals and their owners.

Throughout the length of the Pets in Need Project, the ElleVan has helped over 1,000 pets with veterinary care. To those pets, Annamaet Petfoods provided 451 bags of dog food, 140 bags of cat food, and 160 bags of treats.

“The reality of the COVID-19 crisis has thrown many people and their families into hardship, with even fewer resources available than ever before,” said Robert Downey, founder and president of Annamaet Petfoods Inc. “Regardless of financial circumstances, pets are part of the family, so we wanted to provide some relief and make sure these dogs and cats were receiving the proper nutrition and medical attention they deserve. We are so happy that ElleVet invited us to be a part of this critical mission.”

Among the team of veterinarians participating in the Pets in Need Project was Annamaet’s Staff Nutritionist, Dr. Joseph Wakshlag DVM, PhD, DACVN, DACVSMR. “It was such a gratifying experience to help pets in need. One of the goals was education about preventative care and good nutrition for these pets. We saw a lot of skin and coat issues and it was great to have Annamaet to offer some of these pets, so owners could see first-hand what good, high-quality nutrition can do for their pets overall wellness,” said Wakshlag. “It was amazing to have Annamaet at the nutrition sponsor of this program—high quality nutrition is a big part of overall wellness and Annamaet really stepped to the plate to help in a time when other companies are being cautious with philanthropic efforts.”
