PR Newswire - Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. of Pacoima, Calif. recently took part in Feed the Need, a generous donation program to help two Los Angeles area pet rescues.
For every "like" Natural Balance received on their Facebook page between May 31 and June 30, one pound of pet food was donated to either I.C.A.R.E. or Operation Blankets of Love.
By the end of the campaign, 17,920 pounds of food was donated to I.C.A.R.E. and 40,000 pounds was donated to Operation Blankets of Love, totaling 57,920 pounds of Natural Balance dog and cat food that helped thousands of pets in need.
I.C.A.R.E. (Into Canine Adoption, Rehabilitation and Education) is a non-profit, no-kill dog rescue. They save dogs at risk of being euthanized from shelters, as well as abandoned, abused and stray dogs. They are a 100% volunteer run and supported organization that cannot survive without the help of loving fosters, volunteers and benefactors. For more information, visit http://www.icaredogrescue.org/
