CANIDAE Pet Foods to Attend West Michigan Pet Expo and Make Donation to Local Rescue for Senior Dogs

4/5/2010

Come join us at the West Michigan Pet Expo this April 24th and 25th. This family event, now in its 5th year, is held in Grand Rapids at the Deltaplex Arena and Conference Center. CANIDAE Sales Manager Jim Brown will be on hand offering free samples and coupons to anyone who visits our booth.

Continuing the CANIDAE Pet Foods mission of fostering Responsible Pet Ownership and helping animals in need, Brown has arranged for one of the show’s animal shelter attendees, Golden Years Alaskan Malamute Rescue, to receive a donation of CANIDAE PLATINUM® formula dog food. CANIDAE Platinum is specially formulated to provide senior and over weight dogs a diet with reduced calories, fat and protein while still providing the important vitamins, minerals, and nutrients needed to maintain health. Made with high quality chicken, turkey, lamb, and fish meals, this all natural formulation contains Glucosamine and Chondroitin to promote better joint health, and Psyllium for fiber intake to help aid digestion.

CANIDAE has arranged for independent pet food retailer Agard’s Lawn & Garden in Muskegon to make the donation of CANIDAE Platinum available to the Golden Years Alaskan Malamute Rescue. Upon learning of the assistance to their shelter animals, Carol Januszewski of GYAMR stated, “We are all too aware of the importance of nutrition and are extremely grateful for the chance to feed our seniors a superior food. Thank you so much.”

Expected to draw in excess of 8,000 attendees over two days, the West Michigan Pet Expo features a large display area for pet products companies, and an adoption area manned by a number of West Michigan area animal shelters and rescues including the Golden Years Alaskan Malamute Rescue. There are also two entertainment stages that feature seminars and animal entertainment designed to appeal to the entire family. This year’s entertainment lineup features the ‘2003 Animal Planet Pet Star’ winner Johnny Peers and Muttville Comix, the premiere dock jumping group Ultimate Air Dogs, Mark Rossenthal’s world famous Animal Magic, and Russell Morris with his ‘Creepy Crawlers’ show.

Tickets for the show are $6 for adults, $4 for children under 13, and free for children under 6.
