Cloud Star Food Donates Food to Canine Rescue
Dogs Playing For Life’s Playgroup program has helped shelter dogs across the U.S. put their best paw forward and find loving homes.
Cloud Star provided nearly 2,000 lbs. or 114 bags of Cloud Star baked kibble to canine rescue Dogs Playing For Life (DPFL).
The Colorado-based canine rescue’s program relies on social interaction and shared playtime to make shelter dogs better behaved and more adoptable. The COVID-19 crisis has created new challenges for the group, which mentors shelters around the U.S. on how to implement its playgroup program and now must perform this service digitally.
“Most of the dogs that come to us are at risk of euthanasia at their originating shelter due to behavior concerns,” said Emily Grossheider, chief innovation officer for DPFL. “The COVID-19 crisis hasn't impacted our ability to serve these dogs, but it has held up some of the dogs that are ready to be transported to adoption partners.”
“We are so excited to be able to provide the dogs that we work with at the Canine Center with this donation of food!” said Grossheider. “We may also be able to share some with our local low-cost pet clinic and shelter that will be able to distribute to members of our community in Florida that need assistance for their dogs during this uncertain time.”
