CANIDAE Staff Raise Funds for AKC Canine Health Foundation at Amgen Tour of California


Many of our West Coast Sales Managers traveled with the Amgen Tour of California for 2011 in order to raise funds for cancer research in pets. Becki Grable, Jim Dempsey, Kim Trudelle, and Andy Faessler shared in staffing the CANIDAE booth at each Tour of California Lifestyle Festival, selling raffle tickets and promoting Responsible Pet Ownership to the huge crowds of bicycle enthusiasts.


Lee Villarreal of San Jose, California was the lucky winner of the charity raffle, taking home two Felt beach cruisers. Villarreal, a dedicated bicycle racing fan, is father to three children and owner of a happy and healthy Chihuahua named Pickles who is fed CANIDAE All Life Stages.


Villarreal has been riding one of his new beach cruisers to work everyday where he is employed as a purchasing technician.


 CANIDAE donated the Felt beach cruisers to the raffle ensuring that all of the proceeds would be available for the AKC Canine Health Foundation and their fight against cancer in pets.


Founded out of a love for pets and family, CANIDAE Pet Foods promotes an active lifestyle and Responsible Pet Ownership, which includes healthy lifestyles for all of us and our pets. Part of CANIDAE’s Responsible Pet Ownership message includes proper medical care and support for pets with health issues such as cancer. Nothing is more central to the core values of CANIDAE than the health, happiness and well-being of pets.
