Eagle Pack Races to Help Working Dogs Get Back to Good Health

Tewksbury, Massachusetts (February 10, 2010) In response to the rescue of nearly 100 starving sled dogs that were saved from the Pawsatrak Racing Sled Dog kennel near Hartsel, CO, the WellPet Foundation has donated 1,650 pounds of Eagle Pack® dog food to help with their recovery.

Local pet specialty retailer Buster’s Natural Pet Supply in Conifer, CO distributed the Eagle Pack food on behalf of the WellPet Foundation to the Intermountain Humane Society, Park County Animal Control, Ark -Valley Humane Society, Odaroloc Sled Dogs and Leadville Humane Society, each of whom are providing care and respite to the rescued dogs.

The WellPet Foundation supports these limited resource facilities that want to do the very best for pets that provide us with unconditional love, trust and companionship.  Because of the WellPet donation, the sled dogs can now begin to have healthy, happy and long lives while being fed the best nutrition.

"We are so thankful for the Eagle Pack food as it will help nurture and restore the malnourished kennel dogs,” stated Bobbie Priestly, Park County Animal Control. “WellPet brings out true humanity and it was a joy to receive and share this gift of food.”

“Thanks in large part to Eagle Pack, the four rescued Alaskan Huskies we have taken in have not only gained weight, but their coats are growing shiny and full and they have more energy. They now look up at me and other people without fear in their eyes,” said TC Wait, of Odaroloc Sled Dogs.

“We are saddened by the mistreatment of these dogs and want to provide the best nutrition for them as they begin to heal,” said WellPet Staff Veterinarian Dr. Al Townshend.  “We know that our Eagle Pack food donation will give the dogs the strength and energy they need to get back to optimal health. We look forward to the success stories that will continue to come out of this.”
