The packs of mince and meatballs contain a dog’s ‘5-a-day’ (meat, bone, offal, veg and vitamins) and are a “nutritional boost” for the dogs in need.
The manufacturer and its staff, some of whom have previously volunteered, are keen supporters of local animal rescues such as Bath Dogs and Cats Home, which saves over 1,100 animals each year including 500 dogs.
Dylan Watkins, founder of Poppy’s Picnic, said: “It’s heartbreaking knowing these rescues have experienced neglect and we are thrilled to be able to provide them with nutritious food and support the fantastic work and love that the amazing staff at Bath Dogs and Cats Home show to our four-legged friends.”
Rachel Jones, head of fundraising at Bath Cats and Dogs Home, added: “We work tirelessly to rehome rescues and rely heavily on charitable donations to improve the lives of dogs that have experienced cruelty, abandonment and mistreatment.
“We’re incredibly grateful for the generous donation of delicious food which will fill over 1000 dog bowls of these dogs in need.”
