Finding Forever Homes: Pet Food Warehouse, Pronature Holistic and the Humane Society of Chittenden County make great partners!


“ ogs, for a reason that can only be described as divine, have the ability to forgive, let go of the past, and live each day joyously. It’s something the rest of us strive for.” –Jennifer Skiff. Rescue dogs, in particular, are the perfect example of these divinely forgiving creatures. That’s why Pet Food Warehouse has partnered with Pronature Holistic and the Humane Society of Chittenden County (HSCC) to sponsor the adoption of pets looking for their second chance and forever homes. Pronature Holistic is a family-owned company manufacturing balanced, exceptional quality pet food, made with fresh, natural and organic ingredients just over the Canadian border near Montréal, Québec. Of all the dry food brands Pet Food Warehouse makes available to its customers, Pronature Holistic is as regionally local as it gets. The company strives to provide quality food, honest and transparent communication and 100% satisfaction. Haven’t seen Pronature in

other states? Though Pronature is available in over 30 countries around the world, Vermont is the only state in the United States to carry these products. We work closely with Pronature Holistic and respect their passion and dedication, so when the opportunity became available to change the lives of homeless pets, we jumped! The idea was to feature ‘hard to adopt’ animals, seniors, bonded pairs, or special needs. The partnership would not have been possible without the generous funding from Pronature Holistic. The company committed to sponsoring the adoption fees of one animal (or a bonded pair) per month from HSCC starting in June 2015. In conjunction, Pet Food Warehouse would provide a $100 gift certificate to get the adoptive family started with supplies and food. The Pronature Pals program began with our first adoptable dog, Mack. His life started in the Big Apple, but in March Mack received his freedom ride to Vermont and found himself awaiting a forever home at HSCC. Senior dogs have a harder time being adopted when there are so many young and healthy puppies available. At 8 years old Mack needed a little extra attention to attract his new family. Through social media posts and in-store posters Mack found his forever home, a place to rest his head and live out his golden years. Continued NEXT PAGE
