The Honest Kitchen of San Diego, donated $20,000 worth of pet food to three western region animal welfare groups last week.

"We were delighted to be able to send such a significant volume of food to these wonderful organizations and hope that it will help the animals in their care,” said Laurette Lamontagne, the company's director of operations who coordinated the shipments.
Recipients included Best Friends Animal Society in Utah; the Baja Animal Sanctuary near Rosarito Beach, Mexico; and Help for Pets in Alpine, Calif.

Honest Kitchen gave Best Friends $8,000 in food. The food is reportedly helping to feed the more than 2,000 animals in the rescue’s care, including a number of the dogs removed from the estate of the recently imprisoned Michael Vick. An additional $7,000 went to the Baja sanctuary, while $5,000 was given to Help For Pets, which links animal foster homes in the San Diego area.

Overall, the pet food manufacturer said it donated roughly 25 percent of its fiscal year 2007 net profits to charity through its Pawlanthropy program, which also provided price reductions on its products for registered military and service animals. Pawlanthropy began in 2006, four years after the company was founded by Lucy Postins.

Good article with lots of detail for the length.
We operate a small no-kill shelter in Arizona and would love to have a similar donation. Best Friends is great. Good to hear about the other two organizations.
